Hello guys I'm Amrando from Buenos Aires, I was wondering if anyone knows if in Cover The Spot , when a player knows exactly where to throw the disks and it is going to be a winner, the operator know any technique to rigged the game, or if there are ways to rigged the game, so people always loose.

thanks a lot

Mandy

Yes, the game can be rigged against the player.

If a Cover the Spot game is gaffed, the player is guaranteed to loose every time.
A gaffed Cover the Spot game is impossible to win, even if you're experienced, and even know how to throw the discs to win.

The gaff is 100% effective against the player.

LYBRARY.COM has a booklet by brick tilley that covers various stages of rigging the game against the player.many of these have never been in print.put in BRICK TILLEY SPOT THE SPOT
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

I had this effect ... even when you know what to do, it is very difficult to get it right.

He asked about a gaffed game, and with a gaffed game it's not "difficult" ... it's completely impossible.

Mandy asked me via PM about the old technique of gaffing a Spot the Spot game. Here is one common method:

The playing surface is canvas over top of a wooden table. The canvas is only attached permanently on the player side of the table, right in front of where the mook stands. The sides of the canvas, and the back of the canvas where the flatty stands are loose. The canvas on the flatty side of the table overhangs the back of the table, and is attached via cordage to a slightly elevated 2X4 down near the ground. When the mook drops the final disc, the flatty quickly determines whether they have succeeded at covering the spot on the canvas (which of course, they usually haven't due to the difficulty so there's no need to introduce the gaff).

If however, the mook has managed to beat the game, without missing a beat the flatty instantly steps on the 2X4 (unseen by the dunk on the other side of the table). Because the table surface is canvas, and because canvas stretches, the flatty only has to step lightly enough on the 2X4 to stretch the canvas surface, and expose just a sliver of the spot beneath the discs, which he then points out to the mook, who promptly loses the game.
