Ball and Cup Game
game is an online flash version of the ball and cup magic trick,
the one where an object is placed under one of three cups, then
the crossing begins and you have to keep a beady eye on the cup
covering the ball. Its as simple as that to play, just don't take
your eye off the screen for a moment. The game ends when you have
run out of points by guessing incorrectly too many times. Now,
this is a straightforward version of the cup and ball game, a bit
different from the one you may see in pubs and seaside amusements.
There they try and make money by effectively conning innocent
tourists who watch as the performer plays the game with people who
pretend to be tourists but are actually accomplices. They appear
to win to encourage watchers to give it a go who then win the
first round but lose thereafter as a range of tricks are used.
