What the user must type

Using version 4.53

The objective is to buy a ticket.

User must type.... [buy] {a} {the} {ticket} {for} {to} [london]

Action taken: There are no restrictions. The ticket is an object (hidden). The task action is to move the ticket to held by player. The player is in the room allocated for this task.

When I type the above; i.e. buy a ticket for london; I get the message 'I don't think that is for sale'. However if I type 'buy london' the task is carried out.

I have tried this task in other locations and the result is the same. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. :)

Words in { } are ignored in the Runner, so in the above command only [buy] and [london] work. You'd be better off getting rid of any { } altogether and just having

buy * ticket *
buy * london *

in your task.
