Well, I can see that we're using the 1947 International Convention, but no one bothered to announce it. That being the case...

*South Africa? South Africa ... SouthAfricaSouthAfricaSouth ......" Ah, here we go ... republic, southern end Africa, rainbow nation, Pretoria, ANC, boerewors, lions, braai, Treaty Vereeniging, zebra, bicameral parliament, mieliepap, springbok, lekker ... nothing about Mornington Crescent ... hmmm ...*

Okay, well, if we are introducing the game to SA then I believe we have to use the 1947 Convention as Um said. So, with biltong in one hand, Afrikaans dictionary in the other hand, ons sal na Kruger National Park gaan ...

Damn you, Stockholm Metro Map!
In an attempt at heading the game back to Blighty, I've thrown out my copy of the IMCS Rulebook 2nd Edition 1934, flown from Hong Kong to Paris, thrown up on a Frenchman, jumped on the Eurostar, closed my eyes and woke up in

I've simply employed Toksvig's Protocol and headed back to Londinium. Aldwych was the only play to make.

Thank you, Forkandles, so I can now play Toksvig's second protocol and proceed to ...

Ah ah aaah *wags finger*

Does no one remember the Gealic Language Accord of 1997, amended to include LUAS stops in 2005?

All Welsh play must be preceded by a rudimentary Irish and then Scottish stations!

Since we now come from Aldwych, and it is a Friday a 20something-eth of the month, we can move to the great LUAS light rail system, or as the locals like to call it, the "Danny Day".

I play Ross O'Carroll-Kelly rules, and Dundrum roysh?

Enough is enough. One won't be spewing one's guts out on a ferry in the Irish Sea (look what all this gadding about like a shuttle in a loom has done to Forkandles' health) nor tolerating the queues for Ryanair... at least not at this point... firmly, remaining at:

Oh no... doesn't the Gaelic Language Accord of 1997, amended to include LUAS stops in 2005, require you to express the name in Gaelic, i.e. Dún Droma? Nevertheless, I expect I need not remind you that the Gaelic Language Accord of 1997 was never formally recognized by the Mornington Crescent Association of Ireland (MorCreAsI), on the technicality that the language is referred to as Irish in Ireland, and not Gaelic. Article XVII, with its references to HRH The Princess Royal as "Chief Cook and Bottle-Washer" were also unpopular on St. Stephen's Green, if I recall correctly.

Oh come on chaps and chapesses! Some of the previous moves have been very suspect and with no regard to any recognisable rules, theories or stratagem. Some moves have been downright spurious to say the least with some very obscure destinations - Walthanstow and Kenny O......., come on, be serious!

Anyway........

In trying to restore some decorum to the game I shall invoke the Constantine Principle and move to

Mr Charlie...

I will be subtle and alert you of my presence.

Some of the previous moves have been very suspect and with no regard to any recognisable rules, theories or stratagem.
Were one of any ranking in the IMCC stakes then one would have surely known several of the current participants of this current bout not only researched and trialled, but also founded the various rules and protocols utilised recently. A little respect please! One appears to have stumbled into the wrong league par-accident.

Are you aware of how many New years eve's Herr Twotter has sacrificed to compiling a stragetic methodology to enable a break from "spoon" on Dollis Hill on New Years day?
Blue Diamond has spent several years translating the works of AArdvark da Vinci's circle line notations (British summer time edition) for our benefit.

One thinks an apology is in order!

Dulwich


Should teach you a valuable lesson.

That moves leaves one completely lost in admiration, Flabber. 'Tis many years since we have seen the Dulwich Exploitation played in response to Perivale ... an always-risky idea, especially given the current very low line velocity. Most people would not have dared! You do realise of course that all the other players must now buy you the largest available bottle of your drink of choice, and have it delivered to your home address? No? Please forget that I said that, then.

Employing the little-used Shackleton Sideslip ...

Grange Hill

Be careful now ... this is not as straightforward as it seems.

My dear lady, it arrived yesterday and is already empty.
I there fore employ a Fittle and Smalzbein short shunt to Green Park

Those who know a Verne's Passport gambit are now well placed. Take care young-uns.

Allez, Passepartout, where did you put that steamer trunk? We can set it up on the King's Road and sell it for a hundred grand, as a garage for a Smart Car.

Oh, you're sleeping in it? Well. take up thy bed and walk, to the nearest station. This chap in the Groucho Club told me about these new strategies he's worked out... What do you mean, you don't have a bed? That will not do. Come, let us visit Ikea to see what the Swedes are creating these days. Here's a shilling, purchase two tickets to Brent Cross. What? Inflation? A tenner?

Camden Town would have been a good move. Camden Road a little risky at this stage perhaps - but Camden Lock? I have been obliged to consult the map and I see no Camden Lock.
I therefore propose that as Flabbergasted said no explanation was required, he has in all likelihood been partaking of excessive libations and will overlook this most faux of pas.
We must all proceed urgently to Morden - I'm sorry, I know it's tedious beyond words on a Saturday night - but integrity must be preserved.

As befits a Sunday, a simple yet respectful play of Whitechapel points the round back onto a smooth heading for completion by one of the more gifted MCers among us.

Not so fast Mr Muppet!

One's Fosdyke notations alert me to the presence of a farkle therefore, I hereby invoke the Green line interchange diagonals rule.

Double-Boris back shunt with strile takes us to...
