Below is my Flash 5 version of the shell game: A pea is tossed into one of the three cups; the cups move about; and one guesses which cup is hiding the pea. Click on the button to start the game.

Feb. 16, 2001. Version 1.1: The pea is randomly allowed to bounce from cup to cup before finally settling in a shell. Also, I varied the shell movement (and transparency) a little.
Feb. 12, 2001. This is the first version, and at this point, I don't know whether the game is too easy, too difficult, or a balance. I'd appreciate anyone who tells me an opinion. Since the game in its present form is only 15K (!!!!!), the number of variations can be increased without loss in loading time.
A good aspect of a Flash 5 animation is that it runs on both Mac and PC (and I've tested the game on both). If you don't have the Flash 5 plug-in, it is a fast download.
