What is the name of the move starting at 3:25 of this video?  

It's not in the Rev team figures manual.  

 

Also, are dosey-do and matrix two names for the same thing?  

 

Thanks.

It's called the "walking stick", but never call it because it's triggered by the captain without command. smile.png

Thanks.  It's good to know the names of things when trying to talk about them with other people.  

 

By the way, how did you get the link to show up as a link and not auto-embed the video?  I was trying to do like you did, and even had the time cue in the link, but I could never get it to show up as a link like that.

We call that move "Steps"


It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.

Easiest way is to paste in the URL, remove the http://, then hyperlink the text with the full URL. :)

Interesting John..Nobody knows the real name of this move but we have gradually started to coin the term "minesweeper" for it. It has become somewhat of a fixed name in the local circles now

I think "pick up sticks" is the official name. :).

It's been called a walking stick in the UK since at least 1993 when i learned it as a dual line move.  I guess without the internet back in those days there will be as many names are regional variations.

Thanks everyone for the replies.  

 

I never realized this originated(?) as a dual line team move.  

 

My next question was going to be about some execution details, but the link to the animation answered it already.  :)
