Newsgroups

Usenet newsgroup: alt.games.tiddlywinks.

Created: 21 January 1993 at 3:42 am by Richard Taylor, requested by Julian D. Porter.

The early posts on alt.games.tiddlywinks contain relevant information about winks and winks events, but nowadays it’s pretty much entirely spam.

Email Lists

The email list, Tiddlywinks@egroups.com, was created on 17 May 1999 by Rick Tucker. Egroups was bought by Yahoo in August 2000 and hence the email list was renamed to be Tiddlywinks@yahoogroups.com.
