KING OF THE PUB.

SIX COIN STUNNER

What you need: Six coins and a hankie or newspaper.

How to do it: Place the coins on a table with a random number of either heads or tails showing. Get each of your friends to turn any two coins over. Then turn your back and ask someone to cover one coin with a hankie or paper.

The challenge: Guess whether the concealed coin is a head or tail.

The solution: Before turning your back, secretly count how many tails are showing. Remember if it's an odd or even number.

When you turn round again, count the tails again. If the number of tails is still odd, then the coin will be a head, if it is now even it's a tail.
