I seem to remember him playing that sort of game but I can't get to my copy at the moment - it's buried somewhere fairly nearby but ... ! :~) He certainly did a reel of four where one entered from a circle and back out again and thought he made it rotate in another variation which would be something similar. Wish we could try some of them again.
