Too many stones are missing

In the opening game against Sweden, Switzerland had to be allowed to steal 5 stones in the first three corners. The Scandinavians came up with the initial decision to convert the three-person house to 8: 1 in the 5th over. Eventually it became 2: 9 in Swiss view.

Switzerland could not make up for this and congratulated their opponents on the victory with a score of 8: 4.
