Difference (from prior major revision) (minor diff)

Changed: 7c7
It is worth noting that Mornington Crescent is always considered out of bounds, as winning moves can only be played when proper conditions have been met. Formalizing the "out-of-bounds" convention may be handy in prolonging games, but this rule-set is essentially indistinguishable from so many others.

I believe the distinction is that in a game of Mornington Crescent Out-of-Bounds, one must first explicitly play a move that brings it into bounds – and anounce the fact – before later playing a winning move. In most other variants, bringing Mornington Crescent in bounds may be done implicitly, thus allowing for the possibility of 'surprise' victories.
