It’s fun and can be played by up to four people with minimal equipment or set up time
Spend a penny means wee and weesports sounds a bit dodge
Yes I’d like to hear about your game
you will need:
each player requires:
flip a coin to decide who goes first
the objective of the game is to hit your penny as close to the 5p as possible without hitting it by using your 2p
play begins by moving the penny 5 thumb to 1st knuckle lengths back from the 5p
(this bit of the thumb)
Do you have to remove your thumb?
player then nudges the penny with their 2p towards the 5p, if you hit it you lose the round. Otherwise closest to the 5p without touching wins the round.
Winner of the round then moved the 1p one thumb to 1st knuckle length further back from the 5p and the next round commences.
The overall winner is the first one to have their 1p so far back they can no longer place it on the table.
great game huh?
it’s not recommended
Good stuff. I’ll give it a go later on.
great if you are bored at the pub or just waiting for something.
nudging the other player’s penny out of the way is allowed and in fact encouraged
this becomes crucial in a doubles match
When I was at school there was a brief craze for a coin based game of table rugby. You kind of slid the “ball” coin around knocking it with another coin, and if you could get it kind of overhanging the edge of the edge of the table you then attempted to flick it upwards and catch it with the same hand, you had then scored a Tri
next your opponent made rugby post with the hands and fingers and you got a chance to kind of throw the coin using only your thumbs through the posts for the extra points
it was a pretty fun game
Used to play Blood Money at lot at school and my knuckles still haven’t recovered
oh god, we did that too
The tennis was quite good though
I seem to remember it getting combined into the rugby game somehow
