  • Interesting for a pub games enthusiast like myself. Variation on this theme is referred to as 'Up Jenkins'. I like the skulduggery between the two captains, although we can add 'Church Windows', 'Crabs' and 'Smashums' to this (which all team members can be requested to do) In addition a team member can ask the other side to 'take it away' twice (i.e. remove a fist, having shown an empty hand - hopefully!) before saying 'tippit' with a voice of authority!

    I believe the shove ha'penny is being played in Dorset as it appears to be a board (now) known only around the Swanage area.

    Much more information can be obtained from the excellent Arthur Taylor book 'Played at the Pub'

    As usual the production team can be relied upon to take the mickey out our accent!
