Hey friend when they outlaw stupid questions I'll have no further purpose in life...at least not in cyber-life!
So here's mine; Do these things clip down or is it just gravity keeping them in place on the road?
Perhaps an early Wallyite....maybe even Mrs. Wally devised these as a parlor game for those cold nites on the road.
Here's the layout.
Couple sit on the gaucho and toss coins at the two holes on the boards/covers. Nearest hole = 10 points (it's harder) Further hole = 5 points. Winner gets to decide what to play with next. Loser pulls out gaucho and keeps all coins.
BTW the game was called Titdeley-Sinks
