Don't get me wrong - moving a bomb is not easy - but it is possible.
You just need to trick the computer momentarily.
Look like you are going to move one piece by clicking on it a couple of times. Then instead of clicking a new square so that the piece moves, click instead exactly on the border of the next square. While the computer is confused, rapidly move the cursor elsewhere and drag a bomb.
If you do it fast enough - and wih enough style - the computer falls for it. I have only managed to do this 1 in 100.
The other way to do it - when you reach 2,800 forum posts you get a special 'bomb move' token.

... Fully confirm... and if you just click on the edge of a lake you can even move the lake!... This happens to me once every 1000 games!... to reach the same on the forum you need 28000 posts and then get a token!

A journalist of a newspaper here made up a quote of yoyordy saying that hondjekapitein sometimes moves his flag.....

 

 

About moving bombs: hondjekapitein managed to move his marshal across the lake in a game vs computer-medium. 


Yellowhat is the literal translation of my surname.

None of your pesky cheats will surpass Henry D scouting with a Major in a live game and finding the Marshal.

Did you make him put the Major in the graveyard? And did you put the Marshal somewhere it made since for him? Lol

It wasnt a tournament game so no problems arose (i changed it to some 2nd row position i think) , but his reactions were hilarious :

"C'mon , I'll give you a scout!" (yeah sure bro)

I have heard these stories before :). It has happened in real life tournaments. Dont know who and when anymore but someone (on a  Dutch tournament) scouted with a lieutenant :).

That would take some kahunas to try. :)

 

It makes me wonder, though, what would happen if a guy moved a normal piece multiple squares but never struck anything and then moved it back and left it alone.  Later, the opponent would remember that was a scout and strike it.  If many moves had passed, how would a guy in a live tournament prove the piece had moved like a scout in a previous turn?  Do they video these games?

To be clear about my example. The player did that unconsciously and of course it got solved.

 

If you move a piece (other than a scout) more than 1 square and let him loose you are breaking the rules, even if you put it back (formally you cant put it back, if you loosen a piece the move is done).. They do not video these games so its your word against his. But the offline tournaments are pretty sportive in this respect and I have never experienced it in the many tournaments I participated.
