Explanation:
Dear Ray,

Neither Magdy Zaky nor I gave you a CORRECT answer --since you asked for the meaning of "AROUND DISC used in board games (My emphasis)."

I honestly do not mind AT ALL whatever askers choose as a 'correct' answer, because I learn from it. In this particular case, however, I'm kind of puzzled!!! Presuming Magdy's answer IS correct, it's still neither explained better than my answer, nor even 'earlier.'

I'm VERY curious to know on which basis you've chosen one of the 2 answers.

Regards.

Gus
