Unfortunately the moon remains in the wrong quarter to invoke a Foucauld Irrelevance. Thus our position remains fixed in

We can escape the dreaded loop if I move to

Uxbridge

and the next player utilises a Bilateral Inverse Frobishers.



(Thus if we fail to escape the loop I/we can all lay the blame fair and square on the next player if he/she fails to perfrom the above manouevre)

Its peculiar how the ancient gambit of reverse funnel came into discussion on a different thread. How so few actually realise just how much the true sport of kings enters their lives.

I'm going to use Stovold's 3rd variation of the above gambit and utilise a quadrature-phased reverse funnel.This will cause bifurcation but should hopefully allow the Lv to dissipate and return to a more safer level.

Vauxhall?

Pish.

Likewise twaddle.

Never explain your moves... those who require an explanation won't understand it anyway... those who would understand one... don't need it.

Warwick Avenue, Mr BNT? With the current shortage of halibut in the North? *tsk, tsk...*

It might have looked a bit fishy, but I didn't do it just for the halibut...

Let's see you follow this move: Gloucester Road.

There yet again appears to be a quantity of biltong contaminating the tracks.A quick look in the QRH for this situation concludes that its an abnormal.Action requires as follows.

Cirencester Reverse Twaddle? Very cunning, Mr B. How did you get the jellied eels to stay balanced on the lampshade?

Oh dear!

Herr twotter's last move appears to have disrupted the space-time continuam. The very laws of physics could be affected here.We should brace ourselves chaps as who knows what could happen next? Uncertainty follows. I propose a proper course of action would be....ooer...*****&^%^...you are receding......

ILS32.......

I played Chalfont and Latimer on 23 Jan. I therefore claim the right to play any move of my choosing that requires the use of a pair of half laterals. (Tuesdays only of course, and it goes without saying that Marylebone is wild). Without further ado.......

FAIRLOP

Get out of that!

Not when there's a space/time continuum disruption in effect, nose ... a player of your calibre should know better than that. You're supposed to move to a station that starts with a "Z" ... but since there aren't any, we'll go straight to

Is that a 'Zed', a 'Zee', or a 'Zeta'? The world wonders.

So, Mr 'Um....lifting', you think that was a good move do you? A quick parallel straddle and you're home and dry, is that it?

Have you forgotten there's a new moon?

I call Earls Court

Safe as houses, answer=42. Just checked:

I think you'll find it's a 'Waning Crescent'... which invalidates your Earls Court, validates my previous winning move, and essentially says to you... 'Snooks!'

But, in fraternal spirit...

Bahaha, lifting, you nonce!

My trap is complete!
I would have played Amersham, but then this ruse came up:

an A station called,

A flailing Morningon Crescent called straight after,

The time warp rule remembered

A New Moon station,

An M holder station,

WHich brings me permission, as per the Original Basic Rules of 1854 (Rule 5: any M named station can be followed by calling Mornington Crescent if a false Mornington Crescent has been called),to

Mornington Crescent

I thank you.
