In the game of Schmeegleball the Dartcher stands on the Dartcher's hill and Dartches the ball to the Floomer. The Floomer then Vlots the ball. Sometimes the Dartcher is able to Oliolio it sometimes he isn't.

The Dartch

The Dartch are a people that live in Harmsterdarm, a city that some rumour was said to have been raised from the swampy murks of a long forgotten place, where in more primitive times, they paraded around naked on certain feast days, trading their souls for the Golden Finger of Elzeveer, a Midas type figure of mythology that bestowed the owner of the Golden Finger, insight in to financial transactions that would bring the owner great prosperity, yet at the expense of his or her morality and ethics, which as the wealth grew, would decrease, diminish and eventually cause the holders ultimate destruction. A myth perhaps, yet as myths go, they are often quite powerful and to honour the myth, the symbol of Harmsterdarm, where the Dartch called their city state, home, they honour the myth with a three 'X' symbol, with each 'X' being constituted of two index fingers crossing. A not so subtle acknowledgement of the story. However the Dartch claim that the fingers symbolise the hands tha built their fair city way back, when few can truly remember what was fact and what was fiction. The Dartch exist today, if only in memory, as Harmsterdarm was set ablaze many years ago, apparently by a foreigner, a Puzzle Quester, it is said, but as with all stories of times gone by, who really knows. Those who write history, are very often, not the ones who make it.
