100 Ways to Win a Ten-spot: Scams, Cons, Games You Can't Lose

Front Cover
Chicago Review Press, 2007 - Games & Activities - 158 pages
As opposed to offering up typical magic tricks, this hilarious collection of scams, swindles, bets, and stunts features everyday objects and requires no special skills--just nerve. Some of the scams presented include how to drink from a champagne bottle without opening it, guess the date on a coin as it spins on the table, and pull a 10-dollar bill out from under a beer bottle without touching or knocking over the bottle. This amusing guide claims that a cheater, armed with the right skills, always wins and provides a crash course in conning at cards, pool, bets, and pretty much any activity where a sucker can be cornered into taking a chance.
