How to use "Tarradiddle" in context?

The word "tarradiddle" is likely derived from the term "taradiddle," which is a game people used to play (and still do in some places) with a set of four half-round ivory balls. The object of the game is to successfully transfer the balls from one end of the board to the other. A player can only make one move per turn, and the game is considered to be won once the balls reach the other end.

Nowadays, "tarradiddle" can refer to any game that requires problem-solving skills, as well as anything that is puzzling or confusing.
