Default [Dixonary] Round 2992 FUGELMAN results


A fugelman (also spelled fugleman) is a soldier who is positioned in front of a unit to provide an example of correct drill movements: definition #6. Three perceptive players voted for it.

As for the fakes: three players - Chris Carson with his interpreter/guide (a dragoman, anyone?), Tim Bourne with his plumbing joint, and Dave Cunningham with his feckless German wanderer - all got four votes. No tie-breaker was necessary, though, because Dave was also one of the three who voted for the well-trained soldier, Dave earns the next deal with a score of 6. Chris and Tim B. share the traditional "winnah" spot.

That said, I have a vague memory of someone saying recently that he - I think it was "he" - would be away, out of touch, and unable to deal for a while. If that was by any chance Dave and "for a while" is still in effect, Chris is well ahead of Tim in the rolling scores and would be next in line to deal.
