"I was completely cucumbered"
Werner Dupont (B), during the Project GIPF
World Championship in Prague.
Quote of the update of December 9, 2008
Werner, being a native Dutch speaker, tried to explain in English
that his last pieces were completely surrounded at the ending stage
of a game of DVONN, but he didn’t know how to say it. However,
he gave it a shot and said: “I was completely cucumbered!”
It is still uncertain whether being cucumbered initially meant “being
surrounded” or “being in serious trouble”, but
by the end of the Project GIPF Championship was commonly understood
that a player who was cucumbered had lost his game.

who had just introduced his 6th GIPF-piece.
