This review is from: 100 Ways to Win a Tenner (Paperback)
This is a good little book filled with loads of top tips on bar/party scams, you wont be earning a wage off of what is offered but you can get a reputation as man who can raise a laugh.

I use many of these in pubs/bars before i go into my card routines, it helps people relax when you can gently ease them into a humourous situation before producing a pack of cards encouraging them to ask see another trick.

Proof that the better scams work is evident by the free drinks i have received through working one of the card trick's that i knew originally as the 'circus card trick', i cant remember its no. now, but the book even teaches a further addition to the scam to be pulled after relieving the mark of his drink/money. i once had someone so convinced that i would'nt produce his card that he refused the original bet of one drink,then two drinks then twenty pounds before he raised the bet to two hundred pounds shaking me by the hand in front of a whole room of people. another time we used the gamblers swindle of changing the ten pound note for change in the course of a magic trick, producing the supposedly burnt ten pound note from the till.
unfortunatly for me because of my morals, both got their money back, but both tricks/scams proved their worth. these two tricks alone are worth the asking price because of the reputation it build afterwards.
