Proper coin tossing
« on: May 11, 2021, 04:57:49 PM »
Hello,

Please tell me if there's a proper way of tossing coins. Things I care about:

a) Which is better: tossing coins in hands, or in a glass/box, i.e. something we put coins in, and then move to the table. For instance, I do both: sometimes I just toss it in hands, and drop to the table, or in a wooden glass. Just wonder if there's a proper way.
b) Is there a proper "initial" coin setting? For example, we start tossing with "all heads", or "all tails", or something else?

Thanks!

There are ways that are "proper". But there are no "proper" ways.

a) We have heard of people using Tortoise Shells, mixer cups, hands, a cloth bag even. And they have dropped coins on a red ash table, a glass table, a small dish, a stone floor, and even a rickety old uneven bamboo table.

b) We have heard of people who didn't care and put them in randomly, some put them in all heads, some all tails.

In all instances, the WWG system still works.  So there are no "proper" ways.

But there are ways that are "proper".

If you can help it, you will be clean (as possible for the time).
If you can help it, you will be calm (as possible for the time).

These are customs that have been passed down through time.

But there is one "golden" rule:

You must be honest.
