Sunsch_99IP_17_Apr_1999.jpg (15325 bytes) Sunshine (aka David Sheinson) started playing winks at MIT in the Fall of 1966, at the inimitable Bexley Hall.  Known to play winks with whichever hand is most convenient, and occasionally with his feet, Sunsch formed the famed Hyth team (HYTHNLBTWOC—Hark Yon Tree Hath No Leaves But They Will Out Club), and later, the TKOs (The Knowledgeable Ones), and Chickens Courageous.  Usually out-and-about with bare feet and his trademark black locks, * (as he is sometimes referred to) co-invented the NATwA Perimeter Rule in the early 1980s, aimed at increasing skill and reducing bad luck for those sending winks off the table.  Earlier, in 1976, Sunsch wrote the seminal tome, Allegheny Airlines Book Club Presents, which is a compendium of winks perversions (er... variations).  Sunshine dumbfounded Continentals contestants in the late 1970s with an incredible frenzy of potting.  A number of World Singles events are on Sunsch's résumé. is the official web site of the North American Tiddlywinks Association.
