WORKPLACE PRANKS and other Way to Con Your Coworkers
When con-artists find the perfect sucker, they know they need to strike fast. Which is why your nightmare 9-to-5 is every grifter’s dream: dozens of marks with nowhere to run. So stop thinking that you’re stuck in an office with a bunch of lame coworkers. They’re the ones who are stuck there with you!
HOW TO SCAM YOUR WAY TO FREE BEER and Other Bar Bets
Sit back and pour yourself a drink. It’s the last one you’re going to pay for. Todd Robbins shows you why the local bar has always been the best place for a scam artist to find a victim, or “mark.” Shot on location in one of LA’s “Hottest bars of the year” (Los Angeles Magazine), Todd shares his favorite “bar betchas” games your marks can never win, puzzles they won’t solve, and tricks they’ll never see coming. These 30 scams include NIM, an Egyptian matchstick game that once won Nick the Greek $200,000 shot glass turnover, a simple challenge that will drive friends crazy… and loads more.

The cards have been dealt, wages have been made, and drinks have been served. There’s no better set-up for a con artist with a catalog of tricks. Take advantage of the gambling spirit with these games, scams and bets all designed for poker night. Todd Robbins, master of the late-night swindle, shows you 25 new cons including Australian Poker, a variation that won’t ever fail you; Best Hand, a poker challenge you opponents will lose as quickly as they accept; No-Chance Poker, a lethal one-on-one game you’ll win no matter how often they demand a rematch and many, many more.
