About the Author

Danny Gowler has spent many years compiling this information that "Carnys" don't want you to know about. He is frequently accused of being a "Carny" when he wins games so easily using his methods. It is not uncommon for him to be offered money for his prizes by people who cannot win for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beat the games! May 1, 2002
I've tried to figure these games out forever. I can't tell you how much money I've spent. This book helped me figure them out. The author told you what he knew and was straight forward on your chances of winning. He tells how the games are won and how they can be adjusted to make it harder. I thought it was great when the author said like "If you can't get it in x tries, walk away." It covered almost all of the games at some of the big amusement parks. If you need an help on your technique this is the book for you.....

3.0 out of 5 stars There are no shortcuts, it's all practice! February 11, 2003
I bought this book and 2 others "The Secret of Amusement Park Games Revealed" and "How To Win at Carnival Games" because I was curious to see what was in them. They ALL give you some general idea of how to go about winning some of the games but in essence, it takes lots of practice and perhaps building your own version of it at home. Let's face it, the carnies make their living from people walking up who think that they can win. The odds are on their side and as long as you believe that "it's just a lot of fun to try", you're on the right track. You can and will spend a lot of money chasing those large stuffed animals if you think these books will make you win. That's my 2 cents. :-)
