Did you realise that Ruislip spelt backwards is Pilsiur, which it might as well have been as this move has reached beyond the edge covered by most MC rulebooks. You might as well have said Carlisle.

However I shall put you back in play with

Harrow-on-the-Hill

By invoking the Return Destination Rule.

From the Maintenance Dept:

Modification work is scheduled to commence today at 1530 to upgrade the interphase coordinator software on the circuit transition amplifier de-attenuators on the District and Jubilee lines. The upgrade work is expected to continue for 48 hours. Accordingly, any procedures based on Hancock-Cooper-Askey originators will be invalid. It is suggested that Hochdorfer differentials should be invoked during this period.

A wormhole and a timewar, a true Blackwood gambit if there ever was one.

But under the current rules of play, I think not.

Back to Epping!

Blackwood? Perhaps in his latter years - leaning more towards a Goren . . .

But one digresses; back to the game!

Limehouse

(the plot thickens . . .)

I'll say it thickens

A non-conventional move my friend, daylighting the game in such a way.

In the 30's such a move would have seen calls of your banishment from MC circles. But now, times have moved on.

Very well, lets see how this pans out.

Limehouse, I would have been pleased to call that move from memory.

One will play a translation take off from Sloane Square.

In light of it being one's birthday this coming Thursday I feel obliged to apply an Icelandic variant to the '34 Cribbit's ruleset currently in play.

A double Mjolnir takes us swiftly to...


Gospel Oak

Now get out of that one

Get out of that one? Surely you jest!. Easily done sir, by simply utilising "my birthday comes first" stratagem (tomorrow). Therefore i get what i want (a well know ploy used by all 5 year olds on the planet - naturally i am channeling my inner child).

Ergo:

Elephant and Castle.

Heaven forfend a gathering plot, but one has just observed a Scrivener's Salute, last seen in the Icelandic Festival of '03!

Only once before in the history of the great game has there been such an impertinent run of play, but to be a witness to this momentous quadruplet leaves one moved a little more than somewhat.

Respect is due to His Lordship for the fortuitous opening, so a level of sang-froid is required for a suitable response:
