Three-card monte: Play the game

My friend Nick Johnson over at Encyclopedia of Scams put together an interactive Youtube video in which the viewer can actually play. Although Nick uses disks this is essentially three-card monte, the game that made Soapy Smith money as well as brought down his empire. In these hard times a little extra money is always a plus so go ahead and give it a try. It's a sure-thing!

A Little fun just now and then,
is relished by the best of men.

You may and nerve, you may have plenty,
$5 will get you $10, and $10 will get you $20!
