Two-up is thought to have started in the early nineteenth century on the Australian goldfields. It remained popular for Australian soldiers during WWII and is only played in pubs and clubs on Anzac Day.
* Two-up is legal only on Anzac Day
* It can be played with either two or three coins. * The kip is the piece of wood the coins are thrown on. * The person in charge of the game is called the boxer or ringer.
* A nob is a double headed coin.
* “Come in spinner” is the call for the coins to be tossed.
* The person who looks out for the police in an illegal game is called a cockatoo.
* The object of the game is to spin a pair of heads.
* The spinner must throw heads three times in a row before he/she collects the winnings.
In Byron the best place to play two-up is the RSL.
