When it comes to Tricks...

* Never put your full trust in a trick or another Playa.
* Always give a trick a deadline to have your money. If you don't they'll pay you when they are ready.
* If a trick is late with anything that concerns you then put that trick in check on the quick!
* Never allow a trick to pick you up late - especially with your own ride.
* Never abuse or take advantage of your tricks. They'll look out for you and keep you safe.
* Always be attentive to your tricks. Ask them about their life but don't boast about yours.
* Never acquire more tricks than you can keep track of: Two are good, three are ok, but only get a fourth if you need a new starter for your team.
* If a trick is working hard to be a Playa it's OK to coach him/her and to give advice, but keep the trick and Playa' relationship in place.
* Never get loud with a trick and never let a trick get loud with you.
* Avoid associating with tricks you don't know unless you meet them through mutual friends.
* Never believe your tricks are faithful. Always make them prove it!
* Never flatter your tricks but be attentive to them - a compliment or kind words are a plus!
* Never let your tricks see you weak or confused. It's harder to regain their confidence in you if you lose it.
* Do Not show fear of your "Superiors" in the prescence of your tricks.
* Always have something good to tell your tricks. Try to build your tricks' self-esteem, but keep the trick and Playa' relationship in place.
* Never allow your tricks to act like clowns or your life will be a circus!
* A faithful trick is better than a companion and two faithful tricks are better than one!
* If you find a good trick make sure you have not strayed upon a Pimp in tricks' clothing!
* If a trick tries to treat you like a trick put that trick in check or let that trick go!
* Many tricks will apply at your camp but only a few will make the team. Put the ones you cut on your cheerleading team and in reserve in case your plans for another trick fall through.
* Teach your tricks to think and act as you do. This will make your work easier.
* Never allow your tricks to play with your emotions.
* Never allow anyone to disrespect your tricks in your prescence.
* Keep a close eye on your tricks - tricks have Game too.


* Your Game is the KEY to your Success!
* Believe in Yourself and the Tricks will believe in you too!
