; Mythgraveyard : spring




the act of cannily snatching a flag in the final moments of a game from an unsuspecting opponent. Springing flags is not cheating, although the losers will want to call you a cheater afterward. Having one's flags sprung is the emotional equivalent of walking around all day with your zipper down; embarrassing to have left oneself so wide open and vulnerable.
