Snowdon ... on an LU map? No.

Has this game died a death? Am I going to be shot for reviving it? Answers on a post card please.

In the meanwhile ...

As it happens next week (Tuesday) I have to travel to London to visit one of our suppliers.

I shall take the First Great Western overground service to Paddington then transfer to the underground. Circle line to Kings Cross then onto the Northern Line to take a train to the station nearest to the aforesaid suppliers. Which is...........

That's a shocking way of trying to win. But it won.

Anyhow ... Christmas game?

Jordan,

If I had been attempting to shock I would have gone via Battersea Power Station.

But in the Xmas spirit I shall go to

Vauxhall

I know it's unusual to play a Spoon so early in an evolution, but I am afraid that opening is irresistable. Acordingly:

Liverpool Street

Heh Heh Heh!

Occasionally, a move is played, which defies all known logic. This, I feel, is one such move. It is neither Pancake Day, a Bank Holiday, or Lent and therefore has no basis in any of the learned tomes dedicated to understanding playing strategy. Granted, that it was included in Lord Mauningstone's ramblings, but that itself guarantees its consignment to the ignominious fate it deserves! And so, ignoring the last play.........BARONS COURT.

And for the sake of a clean game, let's hope that Proot doesn't realise that the game has been resusitated!

Oh I've seen it Lukeafb, this game defies all logic.

We've had two returns to Mornington Crescent and two flippin immediate departures. Never in its 400 year history, has Mornington Crescent been played outside the bounds of the Official Rules.

I quote.

Rule 26a sub section (iv) (1946). Once a game has terminated at the desired station, it is expressly forbidden to depart on another game until such time has past and all players have had time for rest and recuperation.

Rule 1342 app 3 verse 2 (1742). Ye of ill repute, muste nere playe more than ye canst mitwoch helpe from passing strangers and vagabonds. ( Lord Mauningstone's dying wish )

So I feel obliged to be a bystander in this game. I cannot and will not break the rules, look what happened last time

It's all very well quoting Rule 1342 app 3 verse 2 (1742), but that rule, in the *Northern Hemisphere at least, was overturned by the Loch Lomand Accord (1920).

I also believe that Rule 26a sub section (iv) (1946) was widely discredited in the early 1960s because it had been brought in in the post-War years, to allow more time for reconstruction work ... apparently, members of the main building work union at the time had managed to negotiate 'MC Time', which could be taken on an ad hoc basis by fully qualified brick layers (not apprentices). The length of the games, and propensity for repeating the exercise, was considered a major limiting factor to the rebuilding of parts of London in particular.

That said, I am intrigued to see where this game goes. Who needs logic! Take this:

High Street Kensington

* Originally this was based on the geographic locations where the game was being played. However, since the spawning of numerous MC off-shooots (eg West 34th Street), the rule has generally been said to be invalid for those games where the London Underground was the 'playground', irrespective of the geographical locations of the players. This has been reinforced following the development of the WWW; one player could be in Sydney, whilst another in the same game could well be based in norther Norway.

Actually, I think everybody was thinking about the next move. You are still learning really are'nt you. Capn Notarious played a very tricky move and, if you do not mind me saying, your move was quite naive. However, if was legal and it got the match going again, so fair play to you.

Anyway, looks like we are going to get bogged down in a round of looking at the rules. So ignoring all the fuss I will leap in with a straightforward cross shunt:

High Street Kensington

[Edited because I made a terrible mistake and played a repeat cross shunt. The shame! Goes to prove that no matter how experienced... ]

A ha - The thread has been reactivated and it took me a couple of days to realise!

You made a brave move there Evening Star. If I weren't a Gentleman I could have got you with Fools Cresent and the game would have ended immediately. However, in the name of good sport, I will perform a single Arnos (to avoid the Dollis Loop)

Dollis Hill

Very decent of you ramsrc. Much appreciated especially as, in truth, think I was playing dreadfully and fully deserved the Fools Crescent. Anyway, this move is much more stable and will provide for an interesting response:

Indeed a cracker... It allows me to transverse badger to:

Kensington (Olympia)

I have been wanting to use that move since McKenna used it against Nostroviac in the 1976 championships.
