"I was completely cucumbered"

Werner Dupont (B), during the Project GIPF World Championship in Prague.
Quote of the update of December 9, 2008
Werner, being a native Dutch speaker, tried to explain in English that his last pieces were completely surrounded at the ending stage of a game of DVONN, but he didn’t know how to say it. However, he gave it a shot and said: “I was completely cucumbered!” It is still uncertain whether being cucumbered initially meant “being surrounded” or “being in serious trouble”, but by the end of the Project GIPF Championship was commonly understood that a player who was cucumbered had lost his game.
