Shell and Pea Game

This is the three shell game, but with an additional finish. The instructions describe the effect as follows: ‘The performer has three walnut shells and a small green pea. He covers the pea with a shell and it vanishes only to reappear under another shell. This is done under all conditions with various sucker moves. Finally the shells are lifted to remove a giant sized pea. The little pea has grown!’
