Three-Card Monte is a New Reno conman in 2241.


Three-Card Monte is an emaciated old man with a sunburned face.[1] He has set up a crude stall on Virgin Street at which he gambles from. His games are always rigged but if one disagrees with the outcomes they can always take it up with his simple-minded, but loyal, brute of a bodyguard, Rico.

Other interactions

Three-Card Monte will gamble with the Chosen One. After accepting his offer, he would tell them to pick a card; and they would inevitably lose.

  • By passing a Perception check, the Chosen One can see when he keeps a card under his arm, and call him out. Alternatively, the Chosen One can plant a pack of marked cards on Three-Card Monte and cheat the cheater, to which he will express suprise and anger. Both of these scenarios result in him refusing to play with the Chosen One anymore.
