Some outstanding moves there - I am very very impressed.

So here's a bad one - I'll let you work out which rules & amendments I am using:

West Ruislip

Clever move, Mr Jordan. Not sure the Lisburn-Hamilton Promulgation describes the move precisely as you've played it, though.

Guys, guys, guys..........

You're all trying to hard.

Just chill out and play some relaxed moves (though I must admit that West Ruislip was a particularly cool move).

Hence a nice, unhurried

Hackney Wick this chilly evening. I have a funny feeling I've been here before - it's deja-vu all over again.

I do believe that West Bromwich hasn't been played since the great Shandling Incident (that no serious player will ever forget) in the summer of 1993. That was, indeed, a very brave move.

Gentlemen, Gentlemen...

I'm seeing to many late 20th century moves, and I'm led to believe that the Game is loosing quality with all those modern theories you Sirs are happy to indulge yourselves with.

Let's see if anyone remembers what was proposed in the 1908 Reykjavik Convention (never mind the ulterior amendments, just the pure source); given the current position of the Game, I will propose a simple classic move based on said propositions:

I give you Chalk Farm.

GD&L, if you were as much of a scholar of the game as you claim, you would know that the 1908 Rekjavik convention was actually just a few rebels who were not happy with the outcomes of the 1907 Copenhagen symposium. Following the Copenhagen option, rather than the Rekyavik schism, I give you:

Kings Cross

And don't tell me that the Kremlin addendum makes this illegal. It doesn't.

The Second Reykjavik Corollary specifically forbids mention of the Copenhagen Symposium and could leave us hanging with that move, hence a Turlington-Hegelmann Stepover to

Gouabafla, I'm sensing some ancient frictions surfacing once again.
I do not claim having a Masters title, Sir, but as an Old School follower, and having read both Reykjavik and Copenhagen documents (including the very sensible Kremlin addendum), I do feel that there isn't the need to invoke Royal rights to bend the Old Anglia Society rules that go back as far as mid 18th century. As you might know, the famous composer Georg Friederich Händel was one of the most illustrious members of said society.

Having said that, and returning to a more plebeian way of playing... Caledonian Road.


Note: The increasing of the speed is, by all means, intentional.

GD&L

edited to add (and change station): Solid Rust Twotter, splendid move there Sir! well done.

Following your Caledonian Road, Camden was good considering the canal. But as this is an aviation website......Hanger lane

TUT TUT ex_mat - you mentioned the 'P' word - have you never read Kevin & Perrys classic work 'superstion for beginners'? Gadzooks - that's worse than mentioning the Scottish Play to a thesp!

OK Cap'N - using the North London Protocol, I call....

Oh dear Mr Biggles, I see you have failed to take into account my accumalated line velocity by far exceeding the required 26.275ng% for such a manouvre,on account of my previous trip to camden.This oversight could later prove to cost you dearly sir!

harrow & wealdsdone

Wigan and northern ruleset applies (including the '76 addendum by Frogmorton Blackstock who incidentally had a great say in the development of the 'Wah-wah pedal' for electric guitars.

Mind the gap! Chalfont & Latimer under the 1895 November Thursdays ruling. Under the same ruling, please note that Mornington Crescent can be done in 6 from here - anyone know how?

Mr Bear

Quite simple really. A Furley & Hepplewhite Analogous Velocity Synchronisation will allow this but can be overturned by the Sweetlove Track Development Protocol of 1997. Six moves would be a less than salubrious finish to this game, thus
