As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Wink searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "wink box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "wink 2.box" for the latter.

Wink can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Wink does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Wink displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "wink knowingly", "wink conspiratorially,", and so on. You can also "wink 18373649" or "wink toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
