Chris Timson Posted February 7, 2009 Share Posted February 7, 2009 Hi again, Once again it is that time of the year again when, with the forbearance of the other forum members we commemorate Charles Wheatstone's birth with a round of his favourite game. Last year's winner was of course Samantha, and tradition dictates that the previous year's winner sets any special rules and makes the first move. Unfortunately Samantha has not been replying to emails, though this is not surprising in view of her active life. However I do know that she has been down in the Arran library researching the topic, aided and abetted by the two kindly old archivists, Curly Smith and Chalky White. Samantha was saying she's been helping them rearrange their work rostas recently - Chalky was getting a bit worried that Samantha might reduce his overtime shift, but cheered up when instead he saw her shorten Curly's... I shall suggest then that we play completely straight rules, i.e. the 1702 Waverley Rules as used in international competition, with the standard opener:- Turnham Green Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
