But Jordan, what about the Farley Halts rule?

I don't know if you feel able to (never doubt the ingenuity of JBers) but is anyone up for a picture game of MC.

Rules are that you should have taken the photo yourself (preferably even be in it!)

Are you up to the challenge??

Question With nobody prepared to take up Incipient Sinner's idea, another variation?

Right, having just returned from a place where the local transport stops have names such as 'Tractorskaya', 'Combineharvesterskaya' or even 'Transportskaya' (and the latter is truth and not my tongue in cheek!), I think we should praise the glorious poetry, even it tends to mask a grim reality, of many London underground stations. Afterall, what Arcadian visions are conjured by such names as 'Shepherds Bush' despite whatever reality lies behind. I therefore propose a 'poetry play' variation where we judge a move not only by the consideration of the tactics and cunning habitually displayed here, but also by the aesthetics of the move. Of course, it would be foolishly modest of me not to hope that if this experiment is a success it will go down in the annals as the 'Evening Star Amendment'. However, for the moment can I suggest we give it a try and see how it plays?

Now, Jordan D did a (disputed) double shunt, triple reflexative, household gorse move back to Mornington Crescent. The fact JD comments that "it needed to be done" recognises how inelegant a move it really is. Alternatively, under 'poetry play', a more elegant solution would be South Woodford. Skilled players will recognise that only is this move legal (and even satisfying the Farley Halts rule that nosefirsteverytime so graciously reminded us), it has a certain aesthetic quality. Over to all players for the next aesthetically interesting move...

Sounds reasonable to me. Where do you suggest we start? Would

Tottenham Court Road

be suitable?

Except. I hear a pigeon cooing.

A Metropolitian line challenge. So therefore Chorleywood and no packed lunches for the journey.

Having spent the past month perusing my 5th quadranters' Morningtonia theorem essays,36503 pages authored by the great Fosdyke himself, I feel quite ready for yet another bout of this beautiful game.

May I humbly request the Chalk farm '84 rules be set to play-thus invoking the escalator rule and therefore..

Children, Children, Children ... I was leaving this to rest for a while ... and you went and did this. Shameful.

So Putney Bridge it is!

Woah! That's well over the time continuity rule.

As such, disregard that move and replay.

Don't forget that Kingsway is closed at one end.

And we all know what that means.................

Holburn, using the double loopback rule - Kingsway is one sided.

Talking

Wow, talk about giving a game the kiss of life!

Anyway, Holburn is a pretty tidy move, that allows a double back parry to Wood Green (a pretty generous move I think, should get any one of some interesting permutations).

Hmmm,,seems a few have actually studied the finer points of this esteemed game....

This could be controversial but..what the hell..

My alleigance to the Brooks-Smith and Darlington accord,of which I have only nearly finished reading all 2374 pages of (with Harvard style bibliography), lead me to one decision....

..This may raise eyebrows but...

I think you will find that Brooks-Smith and Darlington accord has been largely discredited as it often leads to a 4 point rebuff, if, for example, an indirect oblique to Goodge Street or Barbican were taken.

I don't think anyone here really wants to see a backtrack, so to keep it open:

Aldgate East.

Bladewashout..If your assertations are correct then this requires the invocation of Nash's old peculiar thereby demanding the next move is made in....latin!!!

Ye Gods what have I unleashed??

Shameful behaviour from you all.

I grant you the move of West Finchley under the 1984 Indian Summer agreement.

Tsk tsk, Mr Jordan.

I think you'll find that the Indian Summer agreement was laid down in 1976 . West Finchley, therefore, can be accepted only under the 1965 Harsh Winter agreement.

Don't even get me started on the Late Spring agreement of 1937. Oh dear, oh dear.

Hmm, accepting that move, I think I shall invoke the once only right to head out to Kenton.

Have a jolly nice afternoon.

Fine, I'll play the End of the Week, post 8pm combination move, and see you at Mile End.
