Your Lordship, that was a daring move indeed. Rather clever on the last day of the month, I thought. As far as I can tell, I've been sequestered and need to mitigate if I'm to avoid a serious Circle Line breakdown.

Concentra...

Erm, what was I saying Mr Twotter?

Oh yes - Tottenham Court Road should see us right.

Have a nice, erm.
Nope, there I go again.

Did I already mention Tottenham Court Road?

Time for a weekend traveller periwinkle-redux gambit methinks..

This could cause bifurcation due to the immense technical aspect of such a move..

I know what you're hoping for but I'm going to East Finchley instead. You see, If I'd mave the move as per your cunning ploy you would have taken us to M C directly.

Nighty-night boys and girils. Tis bedtime here in Honkers for all of us little bears who have to go to Malaysia tomorrow... Play safely, now.

While most seem to be asleep and I'm sober.

As the first step in annulling nid, one will play...

Notting Hill

...Unfortunately edging Mr Bear toward spoon if he doesn't respond with alacrity.

Oh flippin 'eck, Mr RC, please stay with us! I've just got two words to say to you - "Mornington Crescent" under the rules laid forth at the 1985 SDP conference (remember them) when Mr Paddy Pantsdown upset the applecart by playing the self same move against that pipsqueak of a man, David Steele - addendum 14 of the 1947 Stonybridge and Abbott Convention, para. 27(a), and I quote, "A straight in play to Mornington Crescent may be made following South Kenton, Tooting Bec and Peckham Rye but only within the 30 days before Christmas and when the outside temperature is greater than 25 degrees Celsius [which, even though pee-ing down here in KL, I can assure you it most definitely is]"

I even told-ya I was a-goin to Malaysia in my previous throw of the dice! Tsk-tsk.

Shall I start off another wee round? Or would someone else like the honour?

Please, go ahead, I'll step aside....

Mmmm...

Pretty loose interpretation of Stonybridge and Abbott '47 there, Mr Bear. You neglected to mention into which bodily orifice the rose was inserted, the location of your underwear and the precise use to which the penguin and fire extinguisher had been put, as well as the ensuing results.

However, one will let it slide (useful hint, Mr B) if other players are willing to allow this sorry lapse of the Laws to go unpunished. In the interests of expediting play and to celebrate Mr Bear's victory (sic), one will begin with...

Nor did I say who the bodily orifice belonged to. However, due to the lack of penguins one was forced to use the alternate "brown monkey" addendum... As for the fire extinguisher, well, it's a given, isn't it?

Hmm Paddington, is tha because I'm a bear?

Sticking with mainline stations, Charing Cross on t'other side o 't river.

Tata!

I'm not convinced with that last win ... but anyway ....

Cannon Street, continuing in the same rules.

Oh Mr Jordan (any relation to Eddie Jordan [Ed - D Jordan - gerrit?]), you cheeky young whippersnapper, you. I remember when the Stonybridge and Abbott Convention was first written!

Anyway, continuing with the railway stations theme, Harrow & Wealdstone should see you right. A word of warning, though - you watch that special fare for printed single and return tickets from that there station! 't has caught more than one young 'un out afore now.

Why am I writing in such a stupid accent?

Not even the wily Solid Rust Twotter would have considered an Arbuthnots Trump. This anti clockwise and left handed move takes me to North Harrow
Award yourself a treat if you can deduce the next play.

By the Beard of the Prophet, your Lordship. A slick move indeed. To block your next move completely is patently impossible, but a simple task to restrict your options somewhat with...

I'll vouch it has been many a year, since anyone has played a Dick Turpins: Blackhorse Road
