Beat the Cheat - Northcote Town Hall Jul 9-13

Post by urbaer » Wed Jun 05, 2013 11:41 am

Northcote Leader has an article about Beat the Cheat, a magic show with Magician Nicholas J. Johnson and geek Ben Mckenzie (as ref).
Johnson said he decided to build a show around cheating at board games such as Monopoly and naughts and crosses because they were "on trend"
"Board game clubs are the big thing at the moment - there's several in Northcote," he said.
But they don't provide any details of any of these games clubs :doubt:

The show is on at Northcote Town Hall 7.30-8.20pm on July 9 to 13, TIX: A: $20– C: $15 – Groups (10 or more) $15

His video and links to where you can buy tickets is at http://melbournemagicfestival.com/speak ... the-cheat/

I don't think he's referring to us - not sure how naughts and crosses is a boardgame either but it is an interesting idea for a magic show.
Power tends to isolate those who hold too much of it. Eventually, they lose touch with reality... and fall.

But then if he's not referring to us, he's suggesting that there has been a massive resurgence in naughts and crosses and monopoly... so seems strange.

Edit: Although to be fair, I don't get out much... so perhaps there is a naughts and crosses league :)
