Tippit Night – Cwmdu Inn
7.00pm Friday 11th November 2022
Continuing Cwmdu’s efforts to keep traditions alive we are holding another Tippit Night. Which will be another evening of fun excitement and tension!
Just for fun
Teams decided on the night
Hide your emotions?
Make your opponent reveal all by stealth?
You could be a winner at the Cwmdu Inn Tippit Night and who knows where that might lead!
Come along – even if you’ve never played before!
OK, so according to our experts and Wikipedia “the point of the game is that the team hiding the Tippit wants to make the opposing team guess the wrong fist. The game gets very tactical particularly in choosing in which hand to place the tippit and particularly skilful players play like good poker players, hiding their emotions or even trying to mislead their opponents using facial gestures, body language and verbal banter”.
Points are scored when an incorrect guess is made. The points are recorded on a cribbage style board and a game may be first to 15, 21 or any other agreed number.
For a few pointers check out the video – sorry smoking not allowed!
Locally we understand that the game was very popular in some of the pubs in the Cothi valley, Abergorlech and Brechfa.
