Mugs Up Trick
In this simple yet interesting trick, Criss Angel manages to get three cups turned downwards in three moves, while his spectators seem to be unable to do so.
This one is really easy to figure out and even easier to learn. Criss needs no special skills or gimmicks, just three cups and some misdirection. Here is the secret: he simply places the cups differently at the beginning! Every time he does it, he starts with two cups turned upwards. The spectators, however, always start with only one cup turned upwards. Not quite fair, Criss!
