It can also spelled: "Le Nudge". This is a term used in shuffleboard to describe a player whose gentle touch with the weighted disc or "stone" barely nudges another player's weighted disc out of the field of play on a consistent basis. It may also be used in exclamatory fashion to describe a single play of the same kind.
The term is derived from the epic, though fictitious, battle between Monsieur Pierre Le Nuge and Monsieur Gerard LeBoeuf.
"Damn you Le Nuge! I can't believe you bumped me off again."
