Two-up is a traditional Australian gambling game, involving a designated “spinner” throwing two coins into the air. Players bet on whether the coins will fall with both heads up, both tails up, or with one coin a head and one a tail. It is traditionally played on Anzac Day in pubs and clubs throughout Australia, in part to mark a shared experience with diggers through the ages.
There is a person who controls the coins and the centre that in which is called a Boxer. The centre is the money wagered by each player.
If Both coins flip and fall both heads its called Obverse
If Both coins flip and fall both tails its called Reverse
If one coin a head and one a tail its called Odds
The predilection of the convicts for this game was noted as early as 1798 by New South Whales first judge advocate, as well as the lack of skill involved and the large losses. By the 1850s, the two-coin form was being played on the goldfields of the eastern colonies, and it spread across the country following subsequent gold rushes.
The Australian rock group AC/DC has a song called “Two’s Up” on their 1988 Blow Up Your Video album that references the game.
