Come now, 32,

Ivor Stravinski Northern, as I'm sure you very well know, is on the Omsk - Baikalsk branch line; and using The Siberian Parallel would take you to Krasnoyarsk not Ivor Stravinski Northern.

Since I think you were testing us on this occasion, I think you should stick to the rules and play a legal Siberian Parallel move from Tsvetnoi Bulvar.

I'm somewhat surprised that TIM didn't pick up on that move and penalise you appropriately.

Luke's quite right,

The Siberian Parallel will take you to either Ploshchad Suvorova or to Belorusskaya. Under the Soviet Era rules you can only...

Hell, I don't have to preach the rules to you lot. It's obvious what's needed.

I'll nudge a Siberian Parallel northbound through Belorusskaya and round the circle to Krasnopresnenskaya .

Well, that does it. I'm going to invoke the Leontief paradox to achieve a paradigm shift (in the Popper sense of the word) westward by a few hundred kilometres to...

Stalingrad (ligne 5)

and don't tell me that I'm cheating. I know.

Just a slip of the tongue, guv. Old habits die hard, you know. I'll come quietly.

Volgogradsky Prospekt.

(line 6, between Proletarskaya and Textilchiki, if you don't believe me)

A reminder this game is open to all nationalities.

Try a post, if it's wrong I'll explain why and suggest a correction.

Oh what what joy the Invisible Man has given me the opportunity
to declare that he is cloistering.He loses two moves.Serves him right.
My friend Ivan who is a terrible monk is an exponent of the Trappist Gambit.I shall now use this in conjunction with Terraskovas 2nd amendment.This will becomes a double shunt enabling me to advance the the following move.

Just look at what's happened! Johnny Foreigner starts playing and chaos reigns, the rules are changed and good manners and etiquette are out of the window.

It'll be shoulder pads and helmets next, mark my words. I'm off to play with a bunch of nice fellows from the BBC who REALLY know the game. Toodle-pip and don't forget...

Mind the doors.

After the last few moves, I think its time to really time to show my superior playing skills. I realise that this move will baffle all but the most knowledgeable, but here goes:

Using Prokoviev’s Parallel Punch through Barrikadnaya Junction (it is before 09.30Z, after all)….:

I know it's a very basic question and one that will have me shunned in polite society (fortunately I don't mix in those circles) but...

My copy of Bolokov's Soviet Rules Mornington Crescent Compendium, 1901 3rd Edition is missing the last chapter, on endgames. It being a long hop from Dobryninskaya to Mornington Crescent itself, how does one achieve victory in moscow

Incipient,

I am surprised you ask such a basic question.

Bolokov's Soviet Rules Mornington Crescent Compendium, 1901 3rd Edition was indeed ruled as unreliable and therefore unusable in International Challenges. The world reknown translator Helgar Rumtopolopovitch, who had consumed three bottles of Vladimer Vodka prior to translation, was taken off the job half way through, hence the unreliabilty.

I refer you to following link which may help end game tatics.

You fool, Sinner!

You’re supposed to use the “Bolshoi Soviet Rules Mornington Crescent Compendium”, not the Bolokov Compendium. Bolokov, as you will see if you read it properly, is an antiques catalogue!

So, I fear that, since nobody has noticed that my last move was a Stalin Slyther……. Wait for it………..LUBYANKA!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the easiest games I’ve ever won. Amateurs!!

A little hasty with your claim lukeafb1.

I refer you to section C3 of the link. A Stalin Slyther to Lubyanka is nigh on impossible on Fridays. Check the map and look at the arrow.

Claim over ruled.

You Bas*ard TIM!

I've never had my integrity questioned before. Not even after the unfortunate result in the Tiblisi Championsh................... sh*t, I shouldn't have mentioned that episode. Let's forget I said anything.

And in any case, its not Frid.........Oh Bug*er!

I'm retiring to the pub!

I'm not surprised your retiring to the pub Lukeafb1, the Tiblsi championship was a mockery as well you know. Questions still unanswered.....

Why were there so many donkeys in your dressing room that night.

Why did you think it acceptable to wine and dine my mother ( Freda Proot ) that night.

Why did you employ a Tiblisi taxi driver as your butler... thought you'd gain the upper hand there eh???


No wonder you were banned.

Why pick on me?
I parked my taxi next to theTrosky Plaza before changing into my best bib and tucker to try and earn a crust for myself and my 12 children.

I was perturbed by the donkies but I found them very supportive
in allowing me to place most of my drink and food trays on their
backs.

Unfortunately I had to resign my position as butler because Insipient Sinner was using the donkies for nefarious purposes.
The nightmares will not go away.

In all my years as butler to the Gentry I have never seen anything like it.I was so upset by what I had seen that I had to purchase a return ticket to Kruchev Central via LUBYANKA which
me thinks gives me the game.

I feel moisture on my cheek,I've never one a game before.
