Crowd surrounding "players" - Venice

Crowd surrounding "players"

Game with Matchboxes (V)

I was stunned to see people playing game with matchboxes on the Accademia Bridge. It is very simple way of robbing people. The aim is to find little ball under one of three matchboxes. If one guess well – he/she will earn some money. But the most of the "winners" are in deal with game leader, just showing to the others how "easy" is to grab money. I took some poor photo of that, but such "players" are easy to recognize, and my advice is to avoid them.
