I'm afraid I'll have to call for adjudication here.

I'll chose Broderingham et al (Second Edition) as the reference.

I await the adjudicators decision with interest,but I emplore them
to first check with the Mornington Crescent List of Challenges.
I believe that volume 3,page 14,para 6 will uphold my challenge.

I'm new to this game, so I'll try a straightforward crosscourt backpass to Mansion House.

Might I point out, that Basic Greives' Rules were outlawed at the Rome Convention in 1964, when Count Allessandro Grott attempted a double reverse from Boston Manor and spent a long and extremely painful stay in a sanatorium. In any case, Lyttleton's Lunge precludes the playing of Boston Manor unless the last player shunted from platform one at Harrow-on-the-Hill.

Therefore, using the little known Rykjavik Triple Shunt:-

Golders Green.

Rank amateurs, the lot of you!!

Well, The Guardian's 'Better Lifestyles Supplement' says that I have the right to play the Heimlich Manoeuvre to Stonebridge Park.

Sorry chaps, but desperate times require desperate measures. I therefore invoke the Velasquez Paradigm (Valparaiso Conference 1947 refers) and play................................

Chalfont & Latimer!

Now get out of that without going into knib.

There is of course only one riposte to that, as you will know if you have studied Frogmorton vs Threadneedle (the 1952 title bout):

Clapham Common

Thus neatly sidestepping the knib and led to an easy win for the southerner....

Dash it, sir! Have you no scruples? You leave me no alternative but to deploy the ultimate deterrent:

Euston Square


There is no more to be said.

You are quite right there is nothing more to be said

So after a lengthy conversation with old Dubya I intend to use my WMD(weapon of mass destruction)
Tooting Broadway.

That should bring tears to your eyes

I have a sneaking suspicion you played Brunel's Cantilever there,
(Rule 27(b) Laurenco Marques Conference 1921 Refers).Under this rule as I understand it, parallels are conventional but diagonals are reversed. Novices frequently get this confused with Brunel's Suspension where of course parallels are reversed but diagonals are conventional.
So,having thought this one through,I'll go for....

Again you have thwarted me.I know not the difference between my parallels and my diagonals but I learn very quickly.
I am now about to deploy the third movement of the
Ramsbottom Fanfare in E minor. It should serve me well.

There is no 'Times Square'. You were perhaps looking for '42nd Street - Times Square'?

Just the chance I was waiting for ...

When Putney Bridge has been played

And it is a Leap Year

And the Saturday Night Extension (rule 501 ParaIV, subsection ii) is invoked

Plus the Overseas Connection Regulation is applied

AND the Bi-Lateral Subtlety Gambit is used ...


That allows me to play ...

























Sydney Opera house!!!


Suck eggs you amateurs.

I've been biding my time before making my move.....but "Cometh the Hour,Cometh the Man".
I intend to invoke "Bradshaw's Faint",a rarely used device which can only be legitimately played within six weeks of the introduction of the new timetable.Those amongst you of a sceptical disposition may care to consult the minutes of the 1938 Vancouver Conference which ratified the move.Please bear in mind that under Bradshaw's Faint Rules, Harrow & Wealdstone is Wild. So without further ado.....

In that case 'Hansouman' (sorry my spelling always has been suspect)
