Goodness, we were stuck for ages, has someone collected all the compensation forms needed?

Anyway, now the line is running I employ a Humbolt Scaramanga to move us back to Canary Wharf, I wanted to see how the cross rail stuff is coming on.

That reminds me, the conclave of Excelsior meets in the lower attic of 634b Tottenham Court Road to establish the new rules to allow said cross rail to be employed in the game.

Mrs Challington Smythe will be wielding the tea trolley, though hopefully with less injuries to folk than last time.

Those summoned have already received their vellum letters of access by the usual means, those invited guests will be kidnapped in due course, the rest of you will have to purchase the rule amendments from your branch secretary, cheques made out to me please, although in moving with the time I will accept payment in gold.

Canary Wharf is such a soul-less place.

You need more life.

Obvious move to Leicester Square. Samantha is often there this time of year.

I suspect that Christmas is now over.

Time to play again?

Ha. I was thinking about this today and here you are, resurrecting this archaeological curiosity.

The British Museum station closed the other day, so

Holborn


would be the most appropriate here I think.

Holborn on Bow,

Burnt Oak


is the go!

My great-aunt, a pennant level player, always used to say that.

And yes, I did carefully check the rules before making that move.

After a long arm stretch and knuckle crack - a vigorous dice shake takes us to:

TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD

Quite. Introducing dice to this game is to introduce the vagaries of chance to the complex but precise way the game evolves, especially when played by seasoned players at the highest level, among whom I modestly posit ourselves. Let us hear no more of them.

So. The issue with Tottenham Court Road is not so much its layout, or even its depth or its distance from say, Piccadilly, but it's relationship to other Northern Line stations, especially those within the Circle Line.

The matter has concerned many a good player. Stovold devotes an entire page to it in his chapter on 'Traps For Young Players'.

Still, there's no point dwelling on it. Onwards to Tufnell Park, since we're already on the Northern Line.

Well, that was a long break in the proceedings I must say. Mm, Tufnell Park eh? I will not be tempted to declare MC as I'm wearing odd socks and it's Thursday to boot. So the only move that I can legally play is straight through to Euston. Dash it all Carruthers!

There's only one response to that, of course.

It's Osterley, to save others the research. A clever ploy, but none of us was born yesterday.

Neasden

You're aware, of course, that the Haringay meeting to which you so confidently refer, was/will be inquorate.

RJM you have set them a struggle: Golders Green Tooting Beck Neasden.

I shall apply Monsignor Inky Blacks traverse to take us through to.


BALHAM

Remember the use of WiFi to determine the next move. Was outlawed by historian June August : summer 2014.

RJM - curse you.
I demand satisfaction, my second will be round your gaff with the glove....
and as the slighted party i furthermore declare the costs of travel are on you, please send mucho denarii....

the cheek of some people, inquorating my rule changes.

I call rule check - you will find them taped to the underside of mrs Higginbotham's tea trolley.

and if my rule check stands, as I believe it will then all players owe me a golden snitch - you might be familiar with the term, a writer and player of repute had permission to take the term with her......

cornish-stormrider, despite your foul assertions and impugning of my character, the MC code of chivalry compels me to warn you that you risk knid for not mentioning a tube station. No matter, I will supply one for you:

Paddington

I've heard that it's possible to get to Cornwall from there. Never had reason to try, of course. Tally ho!

The euphemism played so early after resumption seems to have created confusion for the more discerning player. To address the balance, I invoke a Wheeltappers & Shunters reversal, enforcing a roll back to:

Marylebone
