And with a quick 'morning of early closing day before the shops actually close segue' we shall move on to.........

Totteridge & Whetstone

(I know the legality of this move is up before the review board on the grounds that some shops don't but I am confident the rule will stand as long as a. my local post office does and b. rule 1497 b, section 3, para. 16, clause 4 states quite clearly that any rule involving the word 'segue' must remain on the books in perpetuity).

With fear and trepidation I rejoin play, even though looking at my last few moves clearly I am out of form. I mean, after narrowly avoiding a repeat cross shunt on my last move, I put myself into a return loop instead. This is it ... my nerves are shot to pieces ... <mutters to self> must concentrate ... come on man, pull yourself together, don't do a Southgate ...

No problems with your form if that last move is anything to go by, but one has to chuckle at Mr Chips' last move ... and not just for the seasonal variation (v. clever); if he had only looked more closely at the preceding 2 moves (Totteridge& Whetstone followed by Turnham Green), I am sure he would have realised that by calling a declared Half-Pike (as immortalised by McIlroy in the 1972 European Final), he would have been able to play Gidea Park for extra points and a potential game winner next time.

However, the chance has gone. To be honest, I am a little flumoxed now, but duty calls and I haven't got time for anything too complex, so a standard safe play here:

Uxbridge

Ah-ha, the old exam pressure gambit. Amazing the quality one can show under pressure, and Jordan D, that was an inspired move. Will play (for my 500th post) an equally simple return:

Royal Oak

Why thank you ... am off to do the X'mas shopping. Thus the move is:

New Cross Gate

Using the arrangements given under the North Sight Baron Agreement of 1989, and noting the game hasn't moved for over 7 months, I presume the new start moves to:

Tottenham Court Road.

Game on.

Reasoned reasons for a reasonable restart I think Jordan.

Under the circumstances the only sensible move has to be:

Green Park

Come now, there must be more than two people wanting to play.

Under duress of the Forward Play Initiative 2001, I suggest:

Heathrow Terminal 5

I thought the dust on my copy of the rules was there to stay. However, if a superannuated penguin may join at this stage...

Gospel Oak

See! My cloth does have its advantages.

Slightly off at a tangent but covered by the Swansea Convention...

The bus stop? Hmmm ... I'll let that one slide.

Using the Wet and Unadvantageous weather rule (1963, as amended), I suggest

Holborn

Notice from the Fascinating London Underground web site that Blacksheep is promising a "new and interesting move". Am sure it will be a stormer, so getting in my move before the game changes drastically:

High Barnet

Notice the interesting use of the 'bufferstop to siding' reverse twist.

Curses Evening Star At this point I was going to introduce a new and interesting move that when finally revealed shall go down in the annals, if not precipitate yet another convention; but for the present you've stymied me and Blenkinsop's Backslide must suffice, so I'll back out of that siding of yours and play Camden Town

Seasoned players will note that as its more than ten stops I could have gone on to Mornington Crescent and alighted to finish the game, but I'm a good sport and want it to continue. Not that any desire to enter the Hall of Fame by playing an entirely new move has anything to do with it of course

Even without the promised innovation, nevertheless an interesting move Blacksheep. Plus, very sporting not to immediately take the obvious move to Mornington Crescent and instead allow play to continue. Truly the mark of an officer and a gentleman. So, time for a quick reply before I place myself into the doubtless capable hands of Lufthansa, and the state of play allows the rarely used and unfortunately named 'Blenkinsop's Backslide Extension', thus taking us to:

Archway

Using the Roux-Combaluzier amendment to the Otis-Piffre variant :

Réaumur-Sébastopol

Ooops, so sorry, wrong map and wrong rules

North Sight Baron Agreement of 1989
A rather inept reference to an agreement that eventually split into the North Sight Baron Acceptance and the Tangiential Derogation in 1999. Therefore, any assumptions made under an out of date agreement assures the game null and void at that point.

However, the recently discovered Tripp and Lattice Rule of 1887 makes it possible for the game to continue, but only until such time as the next Switchback elongation is proffered. From that point the game must be played to the Existential Variation rules.

Which allows a backslide rejoinder up:
