A regular Orange Line rider tells us of his experience with the shell game:
I was on the Orange Line going to Midway today when a man and a toothless lady boarded the train at Halsted.
As soon as they got on the train the man pulled out a board and the bottle caps - a shell game. He then proceeded to try to lure unsuspecting passengers into the game with the help of the toothless lady and another man who I assume was with the con man. They got off at Kedzie.
This is the first time I've seen them on the Orange Line - I've seen it on the Red Line once -- but expected it. Wonder how frequently this happens other lines?
