China's Song by Brick Tilley

#3 in Gambling top-reviews

This is China's version of the Three Shell Game or the Three Card Monte Game. It is played with three sticks held between the fingers of one hand. One stick has a little string tied to it. The task for the spectator is to identify the stick with the string. As you can imagine this is a crooked game and the performer decides when he lets you win. This game was brought by Ching Ling Foo to America in 1899.

In addition to the PDF, you will be able to download 6 videos that demonstrate several ways to perform this con game as well as videos that show you the modus operandi.

I love Bunco effects and I am familiar with many different ones but I had never come across this effect. Like three card monte and shells and pea you have to find one of three objects and it is never where you think it is. Brick explains the moves well and the accompanying videos clearly explain how to do all the moves. Also because this effect has, inexplicably, received so little attention from magicians I believe it has a lot of potential for further development. If you are into Bunco effects you should absolutely get this.

A well-kept secret. Highly recommended addition to the world of Betchas and Scams.

It's a quick hustle. Something that you can win a bet with. I think with some work you can craft a nice routine with this. The instructions describe two ways to work the con. Is it worth $10? For me, yes. I haven't seen this before and will use it. For the merely curious, probably not. Which makes it even more worth the $10.
