Anyone who picks up the obscure reference above can automatically call Mornington Crescent, bypassing all asundry
Me thinks this game is heading places we don't want to be

I therefore apply Bennetts Uncoupler and take us to Cockfosters

Quite.

Taking a straight forward decouple brings us to Camden Town. So near but so far! Has anybody ever seen the Turnberry Twist from this position?

In that case we must go to Chancery Lane, especially as it has the shortest escalator with a rise of only 15'

Only one way from here then.

(The first escalator was introduced at Earls Court in 1911).

Crazy really, but I am sure the station designers had their reasons.

I am going to break out of this loop, using Huttons Unconformity.

Heathrow Terminals 1,2,3

Anyway, on a slightly more light hearted note, whats the largest crustacean in london.

Bad jokes aside, I am wondering whether it would surely not be better to play the simple future station rule?

But I feel that would offend to many people, so

Knightsbridge it is.

Knightsbridge on a Tuesday, impossible.

Truckstone Billet and Snang. In the empire trials of 1932, determined that no player should go into Town before a wednesday lunch: this was based on the assumption that the previous weekends activities would leave a gentleman unsuited to rail travel before Wednesday.
Thus Jordan you have made an improper move. Tufnell Park.
The seasoned players of M-C will forgive you provided you give Proffessor Mantoons cry of,
"Sorry folks I bowled a googly."
Failing that ARCHWAY may be a useful move as you go through it.

Having to drag this thread back from page 3 is appalling!

I shall make a simple and effective move, seeing as it is a Friday, using the Snow Rule (2004, version 3.0), I make the move:

Stanmore

Carpenter et all in their TOME Not all tracks lead to Mornington Crescent : but many journeys might.
Stated emphatically that Kew Gardens would always be a choice move.
IncidentlyTruckstone Billet and Snang Were later discredited
as being figments of their own imagination.
Kew Gardens
