in about 30 minutes!!) was yes to both questions.
It's interesting to me that jsut about everyone I played
with (including my 12 year old son and his friend) interpreted
the rules correctly, while I was the one who was wrong.
But then, I'm firmly in the camp of thinking that if it's
not explicitly allowed in the rules, it's not allowed.
As someone who has written programs and documentation for
a living, I feel that the rules for a game shouldn't be
written by the same person who designed the game! Teach
the game to a writer and let them do the rules :)
For such a simple game, the rules are 'way too obtuse.
I won't even mention how the frequent use of the phrase
"of course" in the Ido rules has gotten on my nerves :)
