|Where:||Cambridge at Selwyn College|
|When:||A Weekend in October or November|
Tiddlywinks is a Victorian parlour game involving flipping coloured counters into a container – it has more complex rules than you might imagine and a plethora of terminlogy. Winks are the counters, the disc used to flip them is called a squidger….and that’s just for starters. Games last 20 minutes with the winner being the player who scores most during the time limit ; during the tournament points are cumulative and the overall champion receives a trophy. It’s organised by the English Tidlywinks Association, who also arrange other tournaments through the year (see website link for details).
It’s a real competition so you need to be available all weekend and have a working grasp of the rules.
In 2016 the pairs tournament was held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November – 2017 dates are yet to be announced.
