Hatton Cross

I fear that has placed you in Knip, Your Lordship.

Confound you Mr Twotter. A slick Black Mamba movement. I like the dramatic overture, therefore surpass Covent Garden

Which leads me very very nicely to:

Mornington Crescent.

I thank you - and I thank the Saturday Street Entertaiment Subjunct 2000 for the move.

New game - I'll let someone else start!

Bad news Romeo Charlie.
A double Threepwood immediately following a reverse Hutchinson???
An entirely safe move from Jordan D, because it was made before 21.00 hours.

Only applicable to the Southern Hemisphere, Your Lordship.

Mr Charlie is quite correct.

Mr. Twotter ... one notices, Sir, that you neglected to declare your intention immediately prior to playing your Higginbotham Pendulate Obtusity...

The Definitive Rules of Play (unexpurgated version) published in 1998 clearly state that ...

Where the Higginbotham Pendulate Obtusity... is played, intention to do so must be declared three moves in advance of said manoeuvre actually being made. Failure to do so results in the player being penalised according to Section 3, Sub-section ii, line 4 where it is stated that any offending player shall be taken from this place to a place of execution ... etc.

Far be it from me to quote the rules to such a distinguished band of players as your good selves but unless I do that, I cannot play my move ...

The Antipodean Anomaly ....

Sydney Opera House.

Cop that ... laff ... laff ...

Aaahhh, Madame BD.... (Shakes head gravely...)

One so young and fair as yourself shouldn't become involved in the politics of Mornington Crescent lest you place yourself in Nid .

One will leave an escape route for your good self in the form of the ever popular Saxonwold Addendum to the Rhyll Convention...

You wont catch me napping Romeo Charlie

The insurgance of Blue Diamond of Australia. Has activated my grey cells.
The rear attack by Sapper Strine Shovel and Digger Ditch, confounded and trapped their foe. So my variation is. Snaresbrook.

Which leads me neatly to

Sloane Square

And THAT means that nobody can play any station on the Central Line until the Claisebrooke Convention has been observed.

Having previously moved via Covent Garden. The Otello outbound move is used to play Moor Park.

Is it really Monday?

Oh well, that means it's Kentish Town West then, I suppose.

You go away fro a couple of days and all hell breaks loose!

Northfields

And before you all jump up and down and complain that I can't use a station without an "a" in the name after Wimbledon has been played, may I remind you of the regulation covering that ...

Oh, no ... I can't. I'm not allowed to quote rules.

Well played, Ms BD. One has no objection to one quoting the Laws of MC. One's move does appear faintly reminiscent of the rogue Trebuchet-Throckmorton Sweep used in the 1978 Kaleningrad final, however. One will force it from one's mind and play...

Choo-choo!

Northwick Park is my Tuesday play - and my last for a little while. Do behave everyone, won't you!
