The correct riposte is a Gammon
In these circumstances the third approved option is Picadilly Circus

I contest basic Grieves under the tea shop conclave
We ought to be using Terwilliger variant

How say you?

My bad, I was unaware that Basic Grieves were in play. Surely the Worksop Convention [1992], specifically Clause 2c, section 14, has been considered?

If not, for clarification, the Friday Evening Transit was in play

Argue all you like. There was an almost identical contretemps at Leeds in '71, and I think we all know how that turned out. The tea trolley is still missing, as a matter of fact.


By Allenby's Method to Arnos Grove



As a post script, the following is from Incipient Sinner's first post in the present game:

Basic Greives' Rules but with no blocking, shunting or barging. Looping is allowed but only during power play..
Obviously power play is no longer possible as we are well beyond the third 'pukka', but the rest of it stands.

Contestants.

Your duels should have the destination in bold text.
Keen advocates will know the rule: set by Vi Sual-acuity.
“That no player may inhibit the progress of the game: Graphic place names should be prominent.”

Arnos Grove. RJM you are a genius.

By way of Captain Archer’s C8 drawback.

Ah yes, Leeds '71. Lord Caldershott was correct in his summation of that debaclè.

p.s you are aware that opening gambits are subject to the Kingsbury Doctrine, aren't you? Even under Grieves.

I will however defer to the tea-trolley and bid you a good day.

Grumpy: Well played Sir, well played.

Quite.

And I'm no genius, Grumpy. Thank my Stovold (6th Colonial Edition) - 'A faithful guide and friend - 14/6', to quote the flyleaf.

I can make up for my initial lack of boldness but if we're in Basic Grieves then someone needs to clarify which Grieves. I'm going to assume it's Jimmy, and go where he didn't in 1966.

My head hurts, as such I have need of a leech dispenser, even the best of you knows only the finest will do and as such I need to get to Harley Street.

So with no shenanigans of risk of spoons I moot an ambulance diversion followed by brief ambulation to the destination of

Latimer Road, Wembley Park, Great Portland Street... exactly the progression completed by the (eventual) winner of the much studied 9th bout of the Walthamstow Invitational in 1884. I'll eschew the obvious move, and use a straightforward reverse traverse to

Turnpike Lane


Good luck with the leeches.

This might be viewed as a daring move. However, there is a lot of precise play going on here right now so I think it will provide an interesting conundrum:

Ah, the 1902 summer finals. Famous for including the first instance of remote play, when Major Carstairs played Hanger Lane by Morse code from a dirigible of his own design.

That is not my situation, but the move is still a good answer to your clever conundrum.

Hmmmm..nice one from Aussie.......RJM's Hangar Lane, helpfully, puts us just North of the latitude of the statue of The Devil's Danglers, so, with that in mind, I can slow this hectic action down a touch with the only tube station on the network that doesn't contain a letter from the word 'mackerel':



St John's Wood

St John's Wood is kept in a display cabinet at Stanmore but St PAUL'S putter has never been found.

Mark Twain remarked that "golf was a good walk spoiled." Not being much of a golfer, I think we should go somewhere new-how about Buckhurst Hill-sounds a bit Hobbity. Time for second breakfasts Tolkein fans

Or Bukkusst Eeoo as the locals call it.

Back to it. I don't know if this thread follows the Clattenburg Convention and suspends Grieves on public holidays, but I'll risk it and invoke a reverse lateral shunt.

Tish Tish AO for not observing the very essence of the game. LG offered:

To generate momentum and on with the game:

Great play Cyber Bob.

In the mixed universities conclave 1957.
Alfreton White-Black employed the Abbey Road Crossing to a level of dangerous greatness.
It was the Waterloo event: for the other 269 participants.
M.C. was initiated: stumps were drawn.

He re-started play with

IIRC AWB took his time getting round to Oval via a circle line anti-clockwise reverse. Although a seeming masterstroke he was stymied by Arthur Brown-Browne's counter-strike of
