Well, despite being somewhat challenged by antipodean climes, I am fortunate to call upon ancestry (and an Oxford Blue) to cite McGovern and another v the Queen [Cyprus] [1956] UKPC. To wit, Gunnersbury.

Splutter, splutter.

Dice, indeed.

I'm so shocked, I need a stiff one.

I hope Prootie doesn't get wind of all this willy nilly rule changing and dice throwing. Heads will roll. I thought we were playing Greives?

I fancy a change of scenery. I'm off to Green Park to see if spring has sprung (change at Leicester Square) Mind the doors please!

Green Park? Just a minute, Nicolas Parsons got a green card there last week although he did hesitate before he arrived at

To fancy a change is to fancy a 'Ruby'. A flat out charge, with a full hurrah, takes us all to:

Waterloo

And after a Ruby you might need to have a flush in hand to send a steamer down the 'Drain' from Waterloo to BANK

Bank, at this juncture, invites the obvious. Chalfont and Latimer.

On another matter, Limeygal is quite right in her concern about the talk of dice and so on. Grieves is quite clear. It's useful to bear in mind one of the best known of Greives' maxims which have come down to us, in itself a succinct commentary on the orderly precision of the elite game: "Randomness in MC is to be abhorred."

I think no more needs be said.

It's a hard call to jump in with a first post on page 290: amongst the very limited options it gives me, Dalston Kingsland is the clear winner.

I'm this thread's Harry Kane. She debuts, she shoots, she scores.

So we're going up the Victoria Line to Seven Sisters.

Not since 1941 has a 'Kane' been associated with 'The sisters'. Although not widely reported at the time, 'Luvvies' and 'Characters so colourful' could be seen in wild abandon that all seven were cautioned with ill repute.

To protect modesty, we tip toe to:

Finsbury Park

Following CB's quest for modesty, let us adjourn to Victoria. She would not have been amused at today's "loose morals." (She was probably a real drag at parties.)

Speaking of morals, great granmama would have been disturbed by her progeny. The dirty trollops father-in-law would have turned in his grave..

I think it's worth mentioning that we're playing here under Basic Greives with no shunting or blocking. I have to say that I don't understand how one can make the Victoria to KGV progression without some kind of traverse, which, in Canary Wharf, would obviously involve a block. The familial relationship between the two would obviate that, of course, but you didn't claim it prior to your move. If it were later in the week, you'd be in spoons.


Anyway, Tottenham Court Road (Fauntleroy's Gambit)
