A few years ago I saw it being played in Perth (WA) and the player uses a paddle to flip the coins. ( https://www.crownperth.com.au/casino/casino-games/two-up )

For OD:

If you toss two coins and your friend peeks at the result and says one of the coins is 'heads,' what is the probability that both are 'heads?' ;)

Do players have to start with a certain alignment of heads/tails (e.g., two tails or one head and one tail)? Also, I thought there was a string designating the minimum height the coins had to be tossed?

I remember that game from the early 1990's in Las Vegas. Wasn't it at the casino that used to be the Holiday inn downtown?
