"Ultimate 3 Card Monte" is a self-working miracle from legendary magician Michael Skinner.
The 3 Card Monte is one of the most iconic magic tricks and street scams of all time. There are so many different ways to present this card trick, yet none have been as incredible and easy to do as the "Ultimate 3 Card Monte" from Michael Skinner.
Don't be fooled by the fact that this card trick works by itself. U3CM is a truly powerful routine that 1,000s of magicians have used to astound audiences around the world. It's the perfect packet trick to put right into your pocket or wallet and take with you everywhere.
I bought trick over 20 years ago and then I lost the cards. I was so happy to find them here and bought it right away. The handling is so easy, you just need to figure out a good patter to go with the cards.I used this for my initiation show for IBM. I told how my older brother tricked me into losing my allowance to him. This was my intro to magic. I like closing by allowing someone in the audience to examine the 3 cards (watch the instruction video for this aspect of the illusion).
This is a wonderful packet trick. In fact, I think it comes in a close second to B’Wave. I think the instructional video could have been clearer (ie. shot from the performer’s point of view) but that is a minor quibble
Wow! This cool! I’m trying to learn a trick from a list of magicians and this was at the top. It was worth the wait. I can tell I’m going to use this like a really bad habit! So easy to use as walking around magic. I really love street magic. This trick flows well and it’s easy to patter with the crowd.
Michael skinners ultimate 3 card monte is one of my favourite packet tricks. I love this effect as it is really clean & really quite puzzling for the spectators to figure out. One of the best things about this is that it is really easy to do, no sleigh of hand at all. My one downside is that for left handers (like myself) it is a little tricky to go along with, but I soon had myself mirroring Javier’s moves. Definitely a purchase I will use a lot of the time.
This is such a great routine. Easy to learn and I use it at the end of a classic three card monte routine and get amazing reactions. Had to order an extra set because I use it so much.
Lots of fun to practice and looking forward to performing it at some point soon too. This plot has always been a great and these cards allow you to perform it with minimal sleight of hand at all, allowing the focus to be on the performance and entertainment.
Michael skinners 3 card monte is a classic of magic and I believe should be in every magicians close up act the teaching on this download is very clear and concise. however I would recommend looking at other magicians and how they preform it such as Bill Malone and Michael ammar and also Doug Conn as a nice touch which you can start with the three regular cards on the table highly recommended.
I've enjoyed this packet by Michael Skinner for many years. I was extremely pleased to find the cards at Vanishing Magic. The cards are on the highest quality! Shipping was fast too!I'd also add I've ordered many products from VM and it's always an excellent experience!5 out of 5 stars ??
I have been doing a color changing 3 card monte routine for about 20 years. This particular effect has a ton of Dai Vernon inspiration involved, with sleights throughout, yet truly only uses 3 cards with no gaffs. For years, I have been convinced it is the strongest 3 card monte routine I have seen....cut to finally giving U3CM a chance... An effect that requires next to no sleight of hand... An effect that I was performing within 5 minutes of receiving...It blew my other routine away with the very first reaction. I honestly do not know how I feel about that, so I will just give credit where credit is due. We often hear that difficulty of the effect is not indicative of its impact, and U3CM is a perfect example of that. Forever in my arsenal.

Gregg asks: This "Trick" has been around for years. Is there anything new in your Version? As in, newer Instructions, Nuances, Subtleties, etc.
Tom asks: I'm a bit confused by the question posed above asking about "replacement cards" for the Skinner's 3 Card Monte. Are these cards not able to be used over and over? Is there something that requires me to purchase several of these in order to perform this several times?
Paul asks: Hi, can these cards be used by the beginner ie. no sleight of hand needed- are the cards gimmicked only? Thanks.
