RULES FOR PLAYING TIDDLEDY WINKS

The game of Tiddledy Winks is played on a
table with the use of large and small winks, and a cup which is the target.  The
small winks are made to hop into the air towards the cup by placing the edge of the large
wink on the small one and drawing it quickly over the edge with the degree of pressure
necessary to make the small wink hop the required distance to the target.  A soft
elastic surface is the best from which to make the winks hop, and the playing surface may
be covered with a thick cloth.  At the start the box with the cup is placed in the
center of the table and each player places his small winks before him the same distance
from the cup as the other players’ winks are placed.  One player starts the game, and
the others follow in turn to the left.  Each player may hop only one wink at each
turn except that whenever he hops one into the cup he is allowed another turn.  After
each wink has been hopped from its original position, the players may play any of their
winks which did not go into the cup from the position in which they lie or return them to
the starting point for the next hop.  The player who first hops all of his winks into
the cup wins the game..
