It does not explicitly state that you may take this action on a glass in the
possesion of another. To explicitly state it would look something like this:
"A player may drink a glass of champagne by announcing that e is doing so in
a public forum, regardless of who possessess that glass." It explictly
states that you may drink Champagne, but it does not explicitly mention
other players. Thus, it does not explicitly annul Hands Off.

Well, that was fast. I take it you've heard that one before?
That's 450 BNS I owe you now. But again, I'm not giving up any of my
financial advantage until I know that it will do some good.

P.S. There are still at least three other percussion instruments that begin
and end with the same letter. 100 BNS each!
