Cheeky Tricks which if someone is foolish enough to accept your challenge, should win you a few beers

Bill From Bottle Trick

This shows you a working of classic bar trick with a money note and beer bottle that can be a real money maker. Turn an empty bottle (preferablyone with a long neck) upside down on top of any money bill. The challenge is to get the bill out from underneath the bottle without knocking over the bottle. You cannot touch the bottle, and it must remain upside down at all times. Of course, if you win this stunt, the bill is yours.

Whats The Secret ?

Roll up the bill until it pushes out from underneath the bottle.

The first thing people will think of is to pull the bill quickly out from underneath the bottle. This will work on smooth surfaces, unless you make sure the bill gets a little damp where it touches the bottle. The few drops of beer left in the bottle can help you out here and stop your challenger from succeeding this way.

Cool Pool Roll

Here's a trick to try out on a pool or billiards table. You can win a free beer with this one. Rack and set up the table as normal, then lay your cue stick across the width of the table. The challenge is to roll the the cue ball under the cue stick.

Whats The Secret ?

Pick up the cue ball and roll it under the table. The cue ball has now rolled under the stick. Enjoy your beer!

Pull A Coin Through A Table

Challenge: Place a coin on a table or bar. Cover the coin with an upturned cocktail shaker or upturned cup or glass. ( If using a glass, make sure that it is the frosted type so that you cannot see the coin through it ). Bet your friends a drink that you can pick up the coin from the table without touching the upturned container, on top of it. Your friends should laugh at this seemingly impossible task & accept the bet.

Secret: Make sure that you have an identical coin to the one on the table, handy in your pocket,.

Hide the identical coin in your right hand and reach under the table with this hand. Using your best acting skills, appear to be dragging the coin that is under the container, through the table. After a little well acted struggle, you present the identical coin from under the table to your friends and boastfully let them know that you have won the bet & that they owe you a drink.

Someone nearly always figures the trick out and demands that you lift the upturned container to prove that the coin has really disappeared. When they ask, ask them to be your guest and lift the container. Of course, when they lift it, the coin will still be there. Quickly and confidently reach out and pick up the coin on the table. Voila !!!! You have completed your task and not touched the upturned container.

The look on your friends faces when they realize that they have been fooled makes this fun. This trick is a good ice breaker.

Try it just as a bet for fun.
