I found this little village off the beaten path in Costa Rica. A group of young boys are playing "Pitch the Coin" The closest to the line wins. ( You can see the line on the ground between the feet of the young man in blue) I grew up playing this on the streets of NY so I ask if I can play. I win the first game, then the second and third game. I'm now up about three bucks American. I quickly lose the next 10 games and suddenly I'm down 10 bucks. I think I've been hustled and I call them on it.

The expression on their faces confirms it.
