thimblerig.

\ THIM-buhl-rig \  , verb;
1.To cheat or swindle, as in the traditional shell game known as thimblerig.
noun:
1.A game in which the operator rapidly moves about three inverted thimbles, often with sleight of hand,one of which conceals a token, the other player betting on which thimble the token is under.
Ah yes, the traditional shell game of thimblerig.  I believe that is like the baseball hat game at the Ray’s game when the ball is under one hat.  Some people have warned me and Erica against going to Cherokee to gamble because they will thimblerig us.  I think the ‘one armed bandit’, the slot machine, is not the ultimate thimblerigger, though it surely has some thimblerig tendencies.  We shall see.
