Any red showing loses!
The spot game is the black widow of the midway because an untrained player has little chance to cover the red spot using the five zinc plates supplied. Rules: the player must drop the plates one at a time from a distance of at least an inch attempting to cover the entire red area. He is later allowed to drop fewer plates bettering his chances of winning.
The spot game is seldom seen these days because law enforcement consider it to be beyond the possibility of chance. It is an excellent aid to the magician, especially when combined with a demonstration of a short change routine. It becomes a welcome departure from the time worn card and coin routines.
In this ebook Brick Tilley explains how the game is cheated and played to milk the unaware dry.
