Hello All -

Last night I was hanging out with some friends and started playing around with some screw top beer bottle caps.

I was holding them in 3 Card Monte fashion and started playing around with the hype and fake hype. Is there any books or videos with this trick?

Thanks,
Richard

I do not think that there is anything with bottle caps being tossed as 3 card monte. In terms of print, are you thinking of the three shell game with bottle caps?

Mmm... I have never seen/read anything on the subject, but you could also play monte with bottle caps and coins!
Even with coins doing the same hypy move!

I watched a dude in Chicago do the 3 shell game with plastic coke bottle tops. A few months later a guy up here was pulling the same scam. I would say that the similarities run more akin to the shell game than 3 card monte. There is also the scam where you locate the coin placed under the bottle cap for betting purposes.

Sal Piacente - Three Shell Game - Discusses how to do this with bottle caps and a pea (or a replacement).

He slides them around and does not pick them up like you would with cards.
