Rule 11H1 also applies. 

Note other rule variation: Players not using Monroi devices, may write move down then play it. Excessive erasing will be grounds to make player move then write move down. Players using Monroi devices must make move then 'notate' the move. 

Monroi devices May be used on top boards. No one may refuse to use Monroi device.
