In 1999 Ben Good wrote, ''I know of no game that uses it. Torsten Linss has a few problems using Flamingo.'' Well, Charles Gilman has several uses now of flamingo, one CV called Carnival of the Animals:

A long-ranger fixed length like this might be compounded as a practical matter. Flamingo 6,1 plus Famel 7,5 = Flambeau; explain in whole or in part either numerically as to compounds or duals in systematization, or linguistically, or motionally for triangulating only, according to your state of comprehension. In other words, why compound duals instead of having the components stand alone? [source: ''m&b ungulates'']
As well, I use Flamingo frequently in ProblemThemes, which happens to be in CVPage comment last below.
