Scam Stuff is all about the tools, gimmicks, and tricks to make you the most interesting person in the room. Just as Scam School is the show that's all about what you do at the bar, Scam Stuff is about what you take to the bar.

New items and specials are added every few weeks. From loaded dice to lockpick sets, from trick decks to sweet shirts, the goal is to keep you covered in all the gear you need to always have a trick up your sleeve.

Indiegogo Campaign

On 16 October, 2012, Brian launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the establishment of Scam Stuff. Many of the perks effectively acted as pre-orders with a baby theme, paralleling the then-imminent birth of Calliope Brushwood, even including a top-tier reward granting naming rights to whoever donated $10,000 (unclaimed).

The campaign concluded on 14 November, 2012 with a total of $33,260. The website went live the next day on 15 November.

The Rogue's Collection

The Rogue's Flask holds up to 8 ounces of liquid and is about the same size as a standard flask. It is no standard flask though. This flask features cryptic hieroglyphs that provide cliff notes on 23 different Scam School effects, and the stainless steel center piece featuring a retro BB logo and glyphs is actually the bottom of a hidden telescopic shot glass embedded into the side of the flask.
The premium Rogue's Ring is made of solid Titanium, and has a groove cut out into which a special serrated handcuff shim has been placed. Handcuffs? Zip-ties? Both are covered, no problem. On top of all of that, each Rogue's Ring is covered in cryptic hieroglyphs that provide crib notes for 24 different scam school effects.
