Eric has a two cup routine in his "Eric DeCamps - Compositions of Conjuring". It's available from Andrew Pinard at http://www.threeshellgame.com

This was written by David Regal and also includes a three shell game routine, work with ropes, coins and wooden cigars. Great material!

I've seen Eric's routine countless times and it's excellent. I don't believe the ending you are talking
about is published anywhere.

Tom,

You're correct! After I made my post above, I asked around and was told what his finale was for the routine and it's not in print - and even if it was it would not be something that most magicians would be able to do. I don't want to give away the ending because from what I hear it's something he only does every now and then PLUS I don't want to spoil the surprise for those of you who get a chance to see him do it.

Steve,
Thanks for not spoiling the surprise for people. It's
a real jaw-dropper and something very different.

Gbooze:

Thanks for your interest in my cups and balls routine. Mr. Pellegrino is correct. I have two different cups and balls routine that I am currently performing.

The ending of my original three cup routine was something that I developed and put together for the FISM competition held in Laussane Switzerland in 1991. I also incorporated into my for my close show program and it was the centerpiece in my 1996 S.A.M. Gold Medal winning act. I thank you all for respecting the finale of the routine and not discussing it in detail in this open forum. This way it will be a lot more fun when you see it performed. It is not published and yes it is original with me.

While the finale of the three cup routine has received great response from magicians and laymen alike. I am most pleased with the body of the routine. It always gets a very strong response even without the finale.

As far as the two cup routine is concerned, this was published in my last lecture booklet. This routine was specifically designed for use in a strolling magic program. In that context it has been very successful for me. I hope that the people who purchased the lecture booklet and have taken the time and effort to work on the routine have as much fun performing it as I have had.

Saw him at the SAM convention. The only thing that got my attention was his finale. Very surprising… Different thinking...
