We have also explored pickpocketing practices and techniques for this project.


Players walk backwards closely, pickpocketing cards from others’ pockets. When time’s up, Players turn facing each other and going by color, each guess where each card is by pointing and accusing another. +1pt / thief, and +2pt on top of that for color.
