Feeling worshipful tonight so therefore..

Finsbury park

Any opposition to this move is blatently Islamophobic and will not be tolerated.

European court of human rights bill approves.

Gentlemen and ladies of the Great Undergame, I suspect a bout of panic in these last replies. One word destinations? One sentence explanations? These are the plays of desperate endgames, of realization that the track is bare, the quinealla switch has failed, the terrible might of the ponderous intellect of the opposition is in the wax?

Take heart! Review the half forgotten regulations of the masters of the last century! In those that you cannot directly plagiarise, you will find inspiration for innovation, for brave and ruthless thrusts of line mechanics that will enhance your Station! Study our forefatherís brilliance in their striving for that last metre of platform! Learn from their moves, the superb Feint of the Platform Overrun which sent the Trackies to their doom in the 1968 Rutland Grand Final.

Explore Explore! You have nothing to lose but your sanity!!!

To confine the cranes to the nest (Miyazako et al 1952) I propose a Bromley-by Bow to give opportunities to the West

Echoing the MC genius of the late Barrington Menzies-Menzies Rophesby,I shall add another serious twist to this heroic duel.

Stand back in amazement and awe as I execute a ruthless but nonetheless tactical circle line inversion thereby invoking a maelberg variance factor of 1.77ng% effecting driveback to all other participants and thereby moving the state of play to..



High Barnet

This brings back fantastic memories of the fabled 1923 game between Lady Maude Neenton of Krishant and Hugo Fotheringay-Fforbes that lasted 3 days and resulted in a draw.

I believe the play went Bromley-by-Bow, High Barnet, Tooting and then..........

Tooting Common

Waltham? Ohhhhh I'm going to ruin all of your snotty-nosed plans everyone. This is a doozy from the MiniRoughGuide Break book.

Swiss Cottage

Take that like a Toblerone up where it's just not comfy! I know it pretty much takes me away from ever being able to call Mornington Crescent, but I don't see a winning move for at least another, what, 15 tries? Ohh the mayhem I've insued!

Oh how I have gleefully scuppered you all, however it seems that by declaring the MiniRough rule, I seem to have consigned the thread to page two! So in the name of sportsmanship, I do retract my Swiss Cottage.

Since the last move from Waltham is to Brixton, this opens up the options somewhat. I'll go for.............

Hmm ... that's interesting ...

I shall play a simple move with no explanation, under the "Free Play" Agreement of 1975 - simpleton life!

Acton Town

Well played sir! Boxed, straddled and cornered in one simple move, this is what the game is all about.

Hmmm, however this does put me in somewhat of a predicament. Be daring and risk being disqualified or play it safe but open up the game? Hmm...............


Ok, easy way out -

West Acton

But, having shaken a 5/1, with the doubling dice disabled and the 'alliterative alphabet in Scorpio' in force (see Furtlewanger, passim) obviously this leads to:-

I have a very cunning plan!!

Making full use of the 48'000 pages of MC theory by Sir Reginald Perriwinkle-forsythe Bathurst d'arcy (the 3rd) I have hidden away, I shall counter that rather feeble move with a very tactical d'arcy dropkick with 10% full Baron von Foxtrot half strile

And take the game to...

Elephant & castle

Now that should really sort the men out from the boys!!

Well said - the whole game was opened up and that's all he could come up with???

No offence MadsDad, but I had come to expect better moves than that from you.

Anyhow, on with the game - Kensington Olympia

I have heard she was discreditted and ostracised from MC society later in her years for alledgedly punching a child in a wheelchair and barking at lamp posts

Anyway, time for the De Montefort gambit ive been keeping up my sleeve..



Queensbury

We all now know which rules are brought into play after that ol' chestnut!

Ah yes, but did you know the variants thrown up ... I shall use the in situ Variant, combined with the Space Exploration and Success Table Rules of 1967 and 1978 respectively, with a tangent on the Work Day agreements 2001. Thus:

Whitechapel

Let me see........

After Queensbery, the only conclusion beyond the "Q" name, after a farrindonly move, on the day of reckons, with all mallows in northern marks, and, if I'm right, the mayor a Labour man, I think I can actually call it.

Do I dare?
Oh I should.

If there are no objectors, I call

Mornington Crescent.

If that is not your liking, then I'll play it safe in Camden Town

Damnation!!! Jordan beat me to the punch! but, thankfully, a move to Camden Town still accounts as valid, but on another side of the rules. The Buggarov variations, if I remember.

I object under the Galloway ammendment which was rattified in Skegness some months ago.

The rules clearly state that NOBODY is able to call Mornigton crescent within three moves of a De Montefort gambit being utilised.-see page 7435 para 4-rule 3469.4-5iii

I have no option now but to use a classic Mussolini backtrack and take the play to..

Surrey quays

the consequences of this manouvre under the Cholmondley accord 1923 are that the next move has to be done in any european language apart than English due to multicultural positive discrimination.
