Would it be too bold to call upon the 'Czukay Manipulation' making full use of the regulations for use of this move,as stipulated in Frogmortons 'Hydra' and proceed directly to..

Kings Cross

Thus bulkheading St Pancras.

And since use of the 'Czukay Manipulation' automatically ends the use of all formal opening gambits and since the move to revoke this never occurred after some fool opened the bar just before the proposal was voted on and it was never possible to obtain a quorum afterwards (or, come to that, a pint because of the crush) this means that Parallax Inversions aren't allowed for the next few moves (the exact number to be determined using D'Arcys Equation.

Which means, oh drat. I've got to reconsider now.

Ok, I\'ll have to use a Degree of Circumspection instead.

As a Fifth Quardranter im bound by the rules of the Miplington convention of 1961 and the discussions held on record for that event clearly state that using the divised formula xn + yn = zn, n > 2 I have full authority to initiate a half strile to..


Dollis hill

All players are now in loop!

A cunning use of a back pass trump manouvre methinks-try and get out of that one!

I'm going for a record here but I'm sure that by using the outcome of the Kellog-Merryweather Reverse Deposition Accord, circa. 1992, where the number of moves (n) on the same line preceding the move to Dollis Hill is less than or equal to 6, I can head directly to the nearest same-line intersection, which I believe is Bond Street.

Have just received a brief(but informative) phonecall from Mrs trellis where she quoted the minutes held of her game against the late Arthur Cripplehead in the great IMCS head to head of 1964 held in a storeroom which is now part of the Tiverton branch of macdonalds.

When placed at bond street the line velocity enabled the use of Mompesson's Ploy,discussed in the Hector Framilode sagas of 1898 thus enabling a diagonal hop from West hampsted to the northern line.

I hereby put to play Ould's inclination which may be approximated by subtracting the arctangent of Line Velocity divided by Beck's Coefficient from 90 degrees and proceed directly to..

Mornington Crescent

Nb..This move may be invalidated if certain criteria stated in Tobermory's strategem are not met,I have vague recollection of septimus divergence being mentioned as a possible consequence of the above move being disqualified.

My copy was lost at sea during a heated debate at action stations on lake windermere.

Septimus divergence is inconsequential in this case, since your calculated Oulds Inclination appears to be within the paramaters set down in his initial thesis.

I am concerned however at your implication of the 1898 "sagas".

Surely the revised 1902 transcripts, verified by the also-late Arthur Cromléve, would not allow for the use of the Mompesson's Ploy in the first place, due to hyperbolic inaccuracies in Becks Coefficient (notably, the prime divisor of the coefficient squared does NOT match that predicted in the Mormley trivia)?

Correct me if I'm wrong but this could mean a line transfer and transit back to Liverpool Street, with added directional-restrictions until Leytonstone has been passed. If so, schoolboy error my friend

The above is indeed correct, but is however irrelevant in this case.

EM is in spoon so Ould's inclination is not permissable.


This leaves us back at Bond St, so a swift straddle sees us at

East Finchley!?

Dear God man, you've just left yourself wide OPEN for a Jonsian Thrashing Trump to Kings Cross!

And, since I'm under 25, and it's a day starting with "T" in the first week of the month (Go look up The Teddingdom Lines, 1906) that puts me in line for the big....

Mornington Crescent!

God I'm good!

Oh bugger, I was reading the Trumpington Lines, 1904. Bloody smudge on the page. I retract my game-winner begrudgingly.

Another question: what are those funny markings on the covers of most "Mornington Crescent for Dummies" books?

Seeing as play and counter play were invalid above, I shall note the last move as the move to Bond Street and play from there (using Open Rules GAmbits as my guide). Thus under the Hypertension Hypermove Agreement (1995, as amended), I move to:

St Pauls

Why did you completely disregard my King's Cross effort? Don't you know since the New Year's Amendment in January it reverse validates any counterplay involved? If I remeber from the e-mailing list, A certain Mr. Stephen Fry was adimant that that exact move would be valid in the display match of the MCIAF conference with Rory Bremner and Clive Anderson, up against Micheal Palin, Ray Mears (I think) and some bloke from the Financial Times. Can't you keep up?

Since I've already played my move tonight, I won't play another. However, *Cough* Waterloo *Cough* might be good for any novice who wants to jump in.

And Hypertension Hypermove? that sounds like something from a cheap Seventies American gameshow! Bah Humbug! there may be MC players across the water, but you must realise that anything that's outside the UK rules is invalid here.

Followinf the stalemate between Fanshaw and Phanshaw in 1992 when the score was 121 each after extra time, the only possible move following the Harminding Cross flow reverse is to go to Harrow and Wealdstone and get off.

I humbly stand corrected and..due to female constraints,cannot stay to argue the finer points of the 1974 McPhee accord which would prove my righteousness in my asumptions.I shall recalculate and study further before I attempt another move.Apologies all round..The shame..the shame..

Edit?to play it safe...wateloo

..swedish amendment 177 allows

As its the eve of the 60th aniversary of the atomic bombs first use..the Enola Gay frequent flyer tokens paradox phenomenon is allowed to be invoked.

My frivolous but gallant use of the Oswald-heslop manouvre via Aldgate east has caused the game to bifurcate and without further delay, find myself in

Terminal 4/Nishi-Hiroshima


mind your own gap!

This may difficult for traditional players who have not followed the Orient Variations that were codified into the MTR ordinance (1997) and further ammended by the Sing Ko Sing ratification.

After any play that results in a destination South of the river Thames, a play of SHEK KIP MEI is not only allowed but is statistically expected to be advantageous. Any transitions to the Singapore Mass Transit would be voided by the No La (2003) agreement, and so any play that does not either return to London (low points) or finds a way to get to Admiralty before night closure should benefit.

So this is the play

SHEK KIP MEI

Ahh...Not the old Kwun tong line ruse!!

The state of play in this vicinity is well documented in the commentary of the now infamous Gribber v Wilberforcr-Wilberforce Smythe duel in 1972.Utilising an unprecedented use of the '42 Crewe amendment,Gribber pulled of a magnificent Crossmead spiral to escape from a Dollis Hill loop.The resulting furore that erupted caught the attention of the worlds media and the Hang seng index crashed to record lows as a direct result.A state of emergency was declared in many districts of Hong kong and anarchy prevailed for 5 whole days.

And on that bombshell I suggest a terminus stop at..
