Mauningtone, you're a damned impostor!!

If you are who you say you are, I believe you to be at least 150 years old. That being the case, you wouldn't know your a*se from your elbow.

And it is'nt.

And you are!

I have been lodging with my good friend for some considerable time, and even though very old , still have all my faculties. Check page 146 of my book ( which is still mmmissing...f**k this ssstutter ), it clearly states what I say goes!

Therefore an underarm double sluce challenge

RIP Lord Mauningtone 1830-2004

It is with deep regret that I have to announce the premature death of my friend and collegue Lord Mauningtone. He passed away peacefully at 2100 hrs this evening. He had a few dying words and I would like to share them with you.

Quote....Tell that git ILS32 to spell my name right !!!

Where's my fffffff*******ing book ???

Ask Lukeafb1 if he remembers the good ole days when my elbow was up his ass !!!

Where's mmmmmy ffff***ing book???

At this point he became totally delirious and with his dying breath he said

" Tell them ........ Aaaaappleford Ggggggardens"

RIP my dear friend

ILS32.......

I played Chalfont and Latimer on 23 Jan. I therefore claim the right to play any move of my choosing that requires the use of a pair of half laterals. (Tuesdays only of course, and it goes without saying that Marylebone is wild). Without further ado.......

FAIRLOP

Get out of that!

Still, it's no excuse to break the rules, is it?

Just when you think you know what you're doing, someone comes along and makes you look like a complete amateur.

Well played Invisible.

I don't think this thread should end without a tribute to the man without whom none of this would have been possible (except TIM's posts, of course).

Gennulmen, I give you:

I am no player of Mornington Crescent, but I am an avid spectator. However I cannot but feel sorry for our friends overseas who may accidentally witness some portion of the game and be unable to make sense of what they see and hear. Not unlike watching American football. So for those who would seek to understand, and even partake, may I direct you to the Rules of Mornington Crescent.

Good Lord !!?! Whatever next?

You Spoiler Berni!!!

Novices are meant to learn the rules in the traditional fashion, by playing the game. If we reveal the rules to all and sundry on a public forum like that, Lord knows what will happen. We could even have Johnny Foregner and the Colonials playing the game or worse yet, our transatlantic cousins will come up with a version that requires players to wear several layers of body armour.

Please, can one of the moderators delete that link?

I dont think there will be any problem with posting a link to the rules, cos I just had a quick look, and they might just as well been written in swahili.

Us colonials will never be able to decode this one.

We could have an international challenge, with a randomly selected neutral city. As the current Champion I could administer the rules ( cos I know 'em, and if I dont I make 'em up !!) and be non biased judge ( non posting ) Just a thought !

This should sort out the men from the boys and wanabes'.

We’ll play “Lubyanka”

Usual Soviet Era Rules, which all international players will know.

But to make it interesting, Kuznetsky Most will obviously stay in spoons for the duration, Sevasopolskaya must not be used during a Double Shunt and any excursions into the “Circle” must be preceded by a Nudge through Belorusskaya (Northbound).

So, here goes:

Using the Sokolnichskya Line:

Kropotkinskaya (Southbound)

That's a rather limiting move comrade, I'll open things up a bit with Biblioteka Lenina

A very timid riposte there, Sinner.

But, using the Kremlin Counter and opening up the possibility of a Single Shunt:

I was clearing out the attic when I came across a box containing some books.On the box lid it stated that these books were the property of the British Library,they were covered in cobwebs so they must have been there for sometime.Any way to cut a long story short I looked inside and found one which had been written by a member of the Aristocracy called Lord Mauningtone.

It appeared to be a follow on to a book that he had first published in1886.This one appeared to be a set of rules for playing an International game of Mornington Crescent.This seems to me to be very fortuitous as I noticed a game very similar was being played at this moment.

With this book I can CONTROL THE WORLD.

I immediately set loose a Siberian Parallel.
