Tiddly Winks

According to my exhaustive research ,Tiddly Winks was an adult craze in the 1890's , then fell into "disrepute" as a simpleminded children's game.  But it seems that to this day it is played competitively by simpleminded folks who claim places like Cambridge, Oxford, & Harvard as their alma maters.
These are some images of Tiddly Winks boxes of yore.

One can join the fun & purchase Tiddly Winks at Lightnin' Salvage .


Here it is ---our Tiddledy Winks!
