The game of Two-Up is a unique part of Australian Heritage. Two-Up sits alongside Henry Lawson, Banjo Patterson, and the infamous Ned Kelly as a national icon and indelible in our culture. Two-Up is known as Australia's oldest and fairest gambling game and is referred to affectionately as "the greatest game of all"due to the atmosphere and excitement it creates.
The game first arrived on Australian shores with the convicts in the late18th century. It has been played, by Aussies throughout the settlement of this country, the gold rushes and the two world wars and has become a trademark of Anzac day when Australian ex servicemen attend a dawn service followed by a march through the city streets. The fun begins when ex servicemen gather together after the march to share stories over a cleansing ale. It is not long before the shouts of "come-in spinner"
can be heard from every pub and drinking spot throughout the nation. So the tradition continues year after year. Fortunes can be won and lost as well as the more conservative who just love the thrill of the pit. Police will turn a blind eye to the game on Anzac day however it is legal in Broken Hill all year and can be played in some of our casinos.
How To Play
Two-Up is a simple game and can be played with any number of people and is controlled by a person called the boxer. The objective of the game is to spin a pair of heads three times in a row. The spinners initial bet must stay in the ring until he spin a losing pair of tails or they spin the winning combinitaion of three sets of two heads in a row. If sucessful the spinners initial bet will have multiplied by eight ( eg: $5 becomes $40) Meanwhile side bets can be made on the outcome of each toss. The head betters generally hold the wager. the game can be played with two pennies which means that odd can be thrown and pennies will be spun again or three pennies insuring a result on each throw.What do you get?I have personally hand-made each game.
The kip or board is hand fashioned from recycled Australian Jarrah and lacquered to give a beautiful finish showing off the grain in the timber.
