Crown Assizes ruling of 1894 places the linear range of the third quadrantal expansion somewhere in the vicinity of Mrs Agnes Threeble and her pet budgerigar Edgar, of the Clapham Common Birdseed Riots of 1976 infamy. This will cause a latent Fullwater's Induction condition to arise and leave us no choice but to proceed to

Ah the wonderment that is "The Birkenhead Accord". I appear to have mislaid my copy of that momentous occasion in the history of MC, however I am mindful that coupling the aforementioned accord with the Workington Principals of 1899 one is permitted to enable a little known movement of Farqhuarsons' Rhombus, taking us all to Holland Park

In memorandum, Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson explains to his captains his plans for engaging the allied French and Spanish fleet. The memorandum, which is an unsigned draft, dated 'Victory', off Cadiz, 9 October, 1805, contains Nelson's fullest exposition of his conception of MC tactics and formed the basis of his naval tactics for the Battle of Trafalgar.
On 9 October 1805, 12 days before the battle of Trafalgar, Horatio, Viscount Nelson (1758-1805) sent to his second-in-command, Admiral Collingwood, this draft of his plan of attack, which he called the 'Nelson touch', for the forthcoming engagement with the allied French and Spanish fleet. The essence of Nelson's plan, is now regarded as a masterpiece of MC strategy.
The fleet was to be drawn up 'in two lines of 16 ships each with an advanced squadron' of eight of the fastest sailing ships. The intention was, 'to overpower [the enemy line] from two or three ships ahead of their Commander-in-Chief supposed to be in the Centre to the Rear of their Fleet' avoiding Nip, and the dreaded 'Dollis Loop'.
Therefore, I present the 'Nelson Touch'

"The Nelson Touch"
Thanks you ever so much me dear fellow, this enables one to make a play that one has been itching to use for some time now, the much maligned and indeed forgotten "Kismet One Arm Hardy Sling" all the way to Grange Hill

Masterful play sir. Reminiscent of Waldemar Q. Flortle's inspired maneouvring at the 1939 Sarajevo Conference when he managed to run a packed line into Knid without resorting to use of a shaving brush and a pineapple as required in the Danforth Corollary. It was unfortunate that his subsequent deterioration after being found locked in a wardrobe clutching a jelly and muttering about penguins led to his early demise in a particularly violent departure from Dollis Hill using a line velocity not quite up to standard.

In his memory, one will play a Flortle Reverse Pickle to

I say, steady on old chap, do not think anybody 'fell for it'. Rather, we have been boxed in for several moves and I thought SRT's last move was an ingenious attempt to avoid the obvious. Still, fair play, the MC was there for the taking.

To restart, I think London Bridge should lead straight to open play.

I am a slow learner and new to this arcanity and only halfway through the book of rules, so forgive me or ban me if I err, but I believe a valid move would be

McMURDO SOUND.

Mr Kansas, I beleive that you have a reasonable grasp of the rules my dear sir, but what is the basis of McMurdo Sound, which of the rules is one empoying to gain this advantage?

To contrast this I propose a side step though Twillis Harpers to DOLLIS HILL

Mr Cessna, surely you acknowledge the Fairport Convention which is documented in the Postscript to the Footnote on page 392 of the 1938 Bombay Rulebook? Not only does it authorize McMurdo Sound as a special exception bypassing Picadilly Circus; it requires KING'S CROSS among the three succeeding moves, which requirement I hereby fulfill.

Ah, well played good sir!

With the progress to King's Cross good and swift, I get a fair chance to use the oft spoke of, yet rarely undertaken move to bring the Hammersmith Interchange into a formidable position.
With reference to Colonel Harrington's great play at the Sandhurst Intermediate's Forum of 1987, I bid thee all...

[Random question for anyone: Earl's Court, King's Cross... Barons Court? Why no apostrophe? Hmm...]

Mr Bear, I humbly apologise...

I see your Hendon Central, and raise you a Snaresbrook.

Stick that in your pipe!

Close, but no cigar I'm afraid.

I counterract this play, and hope that the following can provoke more of a challenge:

A good play sir,

As saturn is dominating the sky at the present time, the only direction now is to

Edgeware Road

usual exit regulations apply, specifically Judge Thrumbold's highly respected ruling at the Durham County Court, February 1973, which resulted in some three weeks worth of play dismissed when the same happened during that year.

Now this... this is more like it!

Shuffleboard at the ready, I have 2 Aces, so if I move my Rook to take the White Queen that should mean that my draught can be kinged. Ergo, no choice.

Hatton Cross

Enjoyinga challenge, boys and girls?
