Can anybody recommend some books containing games which are either sure-fire wins or where the odds are extremely deceptive? I've already read "How to Cheat at Everything" and am looking for a book focusing solely on games like Nim, Notakto (from this thread: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=466555&forum=191 ...would have made it a link but for some reason the link wasn't working in the preview), the 5 and 7 card hustles, and that game where people guess the serial numbers on a bill.

Essentially, games that don't require actual cheating in order to be extremely biased in a specific player's favor. Are there any books like that which you can recommend?

Not really interested in prop bets (right now).

I wrote a few posts on many Nim variations that you may enjoy: http://headinside.blogspot.com/search/label/nim

Good blog about NIM! I did not know there were so many ways to do this.
