You can't do it now, 'cause there are rules governing where Gremlins are and
how people can move them around. When I took the action, however, there were
no such regulations, so it was just as legal for me to move all Gremlins to
myself as it was for the Scoring Gremlin to be thrown onto the Grid and
picked up in the first place.

Of course... we are at the beginning of the new nweek now.  Good call.
