    Last year I went to Paris and found it amusing watching the guys who do the street games where you bet money if you can pick one of the three objects that has a different color on the bottom. At first they give you a trial run, which makes it easy for you to win. But most of these guys are pretty good at fooling you when there is money on the line.

    I'm wondering if anybody here has the knowledge to help me create a simple hack for this, which would guarantee a win everytime. My idea would be to only win twice then move on to the next person on the next street or whatever.

    Need a chemical that I can apply to my fingers, then when I do the trial run, I touch the right object with the invisible chemical. Then I would need a pair of sunglasses with a special filter I wear, where only I would see the chemical marking.

    This hack wouldn't work if it was the cup and ball trick. But at least in Paris, the street guys (and their fake audience) always used the one item object, that just has a different color on the bottom.

    Who here has a way to do this? What product can I buy to make this work?

    You would probably need UV light or something, then it might be doable.


    btw isn't this kind of game illegal? I'm not sure what you're talking exactly but it remind me the Shell game which is probably not allowed in most cities.

    Keeping those "games" is illegal indeed. in many places they held those games with their "audience" and someone always on lookup for police as TrevDawg said. Ofcourse they are cheating and you will only lose money on there.

    doesn't matter, if you win, they will know you are cheating. Since they (the gamemaster and the fake audience) outnumber you, you might get beat up like olimix said.

    Exactly. This is a bad idea.

    Some of the guys who were doing it were near the eiffel tower and they were all in a crowded place. i'm not imagining doing this on some empty street. i was just surprised as i was walking through paris, that there were so many of these set up. maybe if i went with a friend a two, it could even up the odds.

    You might be in for a suprise if many of them belong together or know eachother and come to aid in case of problems with angry or cheating clients.

    In the cup & ball game, when money is on the line, the ball is removed entirely. I.e. you cant win, because the ball is simply not under the cups.

    I dont know what game you're talking about, but it might be the case also - then the chemical wouldn't help you.
