For the 3 shell game I suggest this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4uBJEHLH3o
you are free to play with whom you want you don't need a table.

I made a board and let a spectator hold it and then do the fast and loose. I take the board back when he puts his finger in.

I have just finished a long pursuit over studying and learning fast an loose.. and now I can't do it enough...it is something I didn't know I was looking for for so many years.

Fast and Loose has so much going for it..this will fit your bill.

write me privately and I will tell you what brought about this discovery

Consider incorporating bar bets.

Chop Cup is good. You can use the old "under the cup or in my pocket?" game.

I do the swindles as a second set. Shellgame, three card monte, Poker routines (punch deal), Chain of chance all work for me as a second set.

I am just starting to mess around with fast and loose. But for some reason, I don't see a definitive ending to the con. Any ideas?

Have the spectator pick any side and call it fast or loose.

Of course. That goes without saying.

However, that's pretty much the con throughout the scam.
Wherever they put their finger, the result is what I want it to be.
What I'm looking for is more of a blow off. Like three card monte with the bent corner.

Dorian, maybe you have a wrong look of the fast and loose con. 3 card monte ca have a look of magic, like the bent corner. with the F & L it is more of a game, sort of puzzle. so a blow off is difficult with this game. I did the next thing. spectator puts 2 fingers, each one in each side. I pull the string. he has to decide whis is fast or loose. if he is right he will get $20,00. by offering real money you will get an interrest peak.

I like the jules lenier routine (school of scoundrels) simple, efficient, direct.

Just introduce it by saying 'people always ask me if there's anything I can do that applies to gambling.." then go into stand up monte.
