I am trying to use the move command to simultaneously move three images in
2.7. on Mac OS 10.3.9 (not that this probably matters given that the error
is almost certainly due to 'stupid user syndrome').

"To move multiple objects at the same time, set the lockMoves property to
true before issuing the move commands. When you set the lockMoves back to
false, all the pending moves begin at once."

set the lockMoves to true
move image "BStone1.gif" to 588,-72 in 2 secs
move image "BStone2.gif" to -65,-21 in 2 secs
move image "BStone3.gif" to 290,459 in 2 secs
set the lockMoves to false
wait 15 ticks
visual effect dissolve
go next card
The docs entry for lockMoves gives the following example script:

whatever it was called).

As it did for iMovie (which we owned)... and a number of other
