I hear the feeling of ill-will at being left out of the Millenium Convocation is so great that attempts have been made by the folks of East London to ban the Hodges & Peacock rabbit, rabbit hop. So named because the move permits the player to jump over Mornington Crescent without fear of actually landing there.

I, being from the Northern Hemisphere, where manners and traditional etiquette are utilised, will thus use a Hodges & Peacock to transfer to

DT was indeed informative, there is much to be known of young Proot Jr and his manipulations of this game we love. I shall suffer the slings and arrows of the next move, for it is all part of a cunning, cunning plan.

That move would not stand the most rudimentary of risk analyses. The shocking potential of any move to Dollis Hill are well known in present company.

The 'cunning, cunning plan' had better be good.

I trust that a transfer to Greenford won't frustrate it.

Risk?

Risk? Risk?
When I joined, Samantha told me that she liked risks.

I see that the countryside has come back in vogue. I like the countryside. let's go to

Uxbridge

after which, shouldn't we circle MC a little more adventurously?

One can't be sure if the cunning, cunning plan is working however there is a certain absence somewhat notable this a.m. Perhaps there is method to this madness after all.

Then again, perhaps not. Let's perambulate over to:

Chalk Farm.

Upminster?

UPMINSTER!?

Why that is checkmate, bingo, set, game and yatzee my friend.

(You unwittingly committed a double-hop tennenbaum)

Mornington. Crescent.

Well played everyone, next round for keeps. Tooting rules, Cambridge skill level, proot moves prohibited under penalty of social death.

Hangar lane.

Terribly sorry Nosey, but had it been Yahtzee! then MC would indeed have been yours. Grieves was a stickler for spelling, punctuation and indeed copyright (the !). One orbit penalty and play proceeds to:

Nosefirst, I have to say that thrilled as we would be for you to have achieved MC, I have to agree about the copyright issue. Grieves is quite clear, and who are we to disagree?

MC is certainly a game of highs and lows.

At least we're nowhere near Dollis Hill.

Richo is indeed correct.

NFET has just attempted the same subterfuge as Torquil Proot in the Bogota Open in 1987. However, the ever observant adjudication committee would have no truck with Proot and ejected him from the competition.

So, to continue: A Full Stop Shunt to MILL HILL EAST

How wrong you are, I was not ejected, I chose to leave which, if my memory serves me correctly, is more than what you did!

The 1987 Bogata Open was flawed from start to finish. Answer these questions if you dare.

1. Why were you there 3 months prior to the event splashing out wads full of cash on the femail judges?
2. Why did you marry the Chairmans daughter 3 days before the contest started?
3. What happened when she subsequently found out you had 14 more wives from previous tornaments?
4. Why were you barred from the Bogata and several other countries in that area?

There are many more questions still unanawered but I will not bore the other players with you totally sordid and devious past. At least I have served my sentence for the little misunderstanding between the Vicars wife, Somerset County Council and myself.

Something not used for a while...... but still very popular in Greenland... A Yupik role to

You Utter Rotter, Proot!!

And once again, you distort the truth. I was there for 2 months before the opening round!

I will not dwell on Bogota any further.

Suffice to say, that I will use a 'Custodial Sentence' (in you're honour) to: UPNEY

What an outrage. The Grand Council of MC should revoke Proot's Playing Certificate immediately and, I'm sorry to suggest, it should also look carefully at the connections of the self-styled 'Proot nemesis' Lukeafb1 with the so-called Proot dynasty. There seems a 'darkness' there on which light should be shed.

Let's hope none of this reaches the world press.

Upney is very sound, on the face of it at least. Let's maintain this wholesome direction of play:

Cool

RJM,

You do me a huge and unjustified injustice. I have had to thrash Proot within a millimetre of his life on more than one occasion for his libellous jottings. Unless you retract this heinous slur on my character, I will be forced to chastise you in the same manner!

So, using a Fordson Tractor Transition, I think I will motor sedately on to DAGENHAM

One makes one's bed, Luke, or one appears to. Perhaps the evidence is merely circumstantial, and you are entirely innocent. On the other hand, you may be caught, caught like a Treen in a disabled spaceship (to quote a great player of an earlier era).

Nevertheless, the Game goes on.

Oval is an obvious choice.

'Somewhere in Hampshire'. I wonder.

ps: If you're doing a runner I wouldn't use a Fordson Tractor. There's a cop around here running a Triumph Mayflower.

Lafb1, how darrre you equate my erroneous double-hop tennenbaum declaration as Prootian! Mistaken? Yes, that I concede, but as a member of the Mornington Crescent Well-play Society I am *bound* to a code of standards of play which are vital to the survival of the game outside of London's reach.

Tower Bridge, if it's in knid.

One does have to be cautious of Proot's sudden revival and use of the oft maligned Yupik role. Surely such play was outlawed in 1987.

Nevertheless, in order to escape such shenanigans I shall move to

Argh the lonely nights of M.C.
Artful players drawn to their beds, planning to enact vibrant game halting moves. The really dedicated, fight insomnia with protracted study of rules.
