Tiddledy-Winks, one of the games Jaques is famous for, is now back. A true representation of the original set, this version promises to be as popular as ever. You’ll be thrilled by our fun selection of games, as are all of our game-loving customers!
A relatively simple game to play, but mesmerizing, Tiddledy-Winks was and is one of the Jaques family’s most favourite children’s, family and adult games. The fun is partly due to the lovely colours of the playing mat, and even more so, the ‘winks’ (or small disks) you try to send into the playing cup, using a larger, similarly bright ‘squidger’ disc.
If you think only children play, you should know that there was once a competitive University of Cambridge team. Tiddledy-Winks involves strategy, some manual dexterity and the subtle art of anticipating what your opponents will do next. Therefor, this makes it a super game for children to learn and adults to stay entertained.
‘Equipment’ for the playing Tiddledy-Winks is simple, but made of high quality by Jaques, to last a lifetime. You’ll be tickled to win by making your all-colours-in ‘pot-out’ shot, or by beating the clock.
The set contains a green baize playing mat, counters and wooden cup all presented in a lovely wooden box. Enjoy our eye-catching and very fun, classic game, now manufactured to the original Jaques design.
