Description Edit | History

Hupkins is an early attempt at Tidleywinks. Players earn points by using a larger counter or squidger to fire smaller ones, winks, into a cup.
The name Tiddlywinks derives from British rhyming slang for an unlicensed public house. The game was first patented by Joseph Assheton Fincher, as Tiddledy-Winks in 1889 and was a craze game through out the 1890s.
