I love the show but I am not too crazy about all of the match tricks and scams. Just my two cents.

If the tip only has to have contact to the one glass to not "trip the alarm", I was thinking you could push the glass with the tip to the edge of the table enough to fish out the money.

Once said money is in hand, hold the match and drag the glass back with match and reset.

Yeah, there's been a bunch of match-related stuff all in a row. I think that's the last one for a while, though.

That's kinda the allure: you want the sucker thinking in terms of pushing items around together... and then the real solution comes out of left field.

I noticed in the show notes that you say to have not only a match and two pint glasses but also a quarter. What is the quarter used for?

I didn't see you set it up with the glasses, but then later on I heard it get knocked off when you were setting back up the glasses and "alarm" to demonstrate how it was done.

I am guessing the quarter is for an option of something to use and try.

Another Great Episode, Totally a trick I'll have to try @ home 1st and get good @ it before I take it 2 the bar..

Totally random but Brian do you ever get any heat from anybody when you reveal a "trick".. I was reminded of that show back in the late 90's called Breaking the Magician's Code: Magic's Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed


On Another Side Note: Over the weekend I got a ton of footage @ the bar doing tricks/scams to a big group of friends.... The only problem being at the bar at night, it was really dark, I'm gonna try and clean it up before posting.

So far, no heat from the magic folks. In fact, iTricks.com and magicnewswire.com have been VERY supportive of the show. I think there's a different mentality among magicians saavy to the current state of magic on the internet.

Awesome! Get those up ASAP. I'd love to start featuring user submitted vids in future eps of scam school.

sorry.. but I guessed right away that it probably had to do w/ lighting the match as a large % of the tricks do.... but I didnt know if to let the match completely burn, etc... also it sounded on the setup (to me at least) that the "alarm" would sound if the match disconnected from the 2 glasses (just a thought about clarification of the setup).
I'm guessing that you need a completely fresh dry "vault" glass for this or am I wrong... not many bartenders wanna give out clean empty glasses... and asking for one might impede the idea that UR using stuff laying around instead of a possible "setup" glass. Moisture will condense on the outside of a freshly drank glass... will the microscopic moisture help in the fusion of the match or hurt? Also.. any residual damage to the glass (should you look for thicker or thinner glasses?
