You Will Need
- A coin
- Time to practice
- A sucker
- A trick coin
Cop a feel
Flip the coin into the air. As you catch it, slide your thumb under your fingers and use it to feel the surface of the coin. If it’s smooth, you know it’s heads; the tails side feels textured and rough.
Practice flipping and feeling the coin with your thumb until you can do it quickly and stealthily—you don’t want your opponent to know you’re cheating!
Try another trick
Try another trick. Holding the coin near the end of your index and middle fingers, flick your wrist up and lift your index finger, spinning the coin like a Frisbee. If you do this correctly, the coin will never flip over.
Exploit your opponent’s stupidity
If your opponent is tipsy (or simply not too bright), say quickly, 'Heads I win, tails you lose.' Chances are he won’t catch on.
Buy a trick coin
If you can’t master either of these techniques, buy a trick coin with either heads or tails on both sides.
