Tut. tut.....

DO pay attention, Mr Matlow. You are quite correct in your proposition regarding only enough escape velocity for two to depart but it is your good self who is now pantalooned in creel, according to Mrs Trellis.

Your Charing Cross stands, however...

Mrs Trellis informs me that your frantic phonecalls to her regarding your somewhat unfortunate situation at the moment have distracted her from her normal MC daily routine.

I believe there is a helpline for MC players who find themselves in a state of creel during the xmas period.I shall search it out for you.

Excuse me chaps. But please could we have less of this bickering. If you two could just arrange to step outside and sort out your slight differences with the aid of a couple of fire axes...

This not bickering Mr G!!

The finer points of MC do indeed need to be pointed out sometimes when a player strays from the various rulesets.Mr Twotters frequent habit of finding ones self in a state of creel is testament to that fact!

applying a 'half twotter' with a northern metro draper gambit I suggest..

I don't know much about airyplanes, but wouldn't half a twotter just be an otter?

In any case, the move is a good one, full or your usual guile and astuteness Mr Matlow.

G - why did you play a move which could lead to a a callous and malicious branding ? Are you saying that you're a Banker ? I will not tolerate such underhand dealing and I switly move the game forward and upward to a new and less shoddy location - so I play the creel special, and I will play this only once,

Hmm,a creel special eh??

Shame its a little too late to help our dear Mr Twotter though,the horse has long since bolted.One eagerly awaits the publication of his proposed observations of his time spent in festive creel.Shall enlighten my boxing day no end!

time for a little Draper's French fancy methinks

One cannot have Mr Twotter stuck fast : it is not the done thing.

Are you saying that you're a Banker ?
Mr Hamster, sir. I request that you withdraw this scandalous accusation either that or you choose your second and meet my at dawn with my choice of weapons.

I refute and rebuttle your exclaimation G, and it's horrendous to consider the sherbert flower which has taken root in your brain. Maybe the feeling of inadequacy which is obvious to us all, which stomps around in your lobal cavity can be eraddictad by the acceptance of your offer for us to duel at dawn, Christmas day. You may take the last train to EAST PUTNEY and we shall meet on Putney Heath at the break of dawn !

According to my Stovold's MC almanac (2002 edition) it is illegal for MC players to partake in a duel on christmas morning as they are expected to be otherwise engaged in yuletide MC affairs.

I have to advise you that by yourself issuing this illegal challenge have placed yourself in spoon and a Brandreth/Periwinkle half-scoot is required to reverse it.

Hmmmmm.....

Mr Matlow appears to be positioning for pantaloon while dribbling on about lighthouses. Perhaps he needs to pay more attention to the actual movement of players, rather than concern himself with rolling up his trousers and frightening the lobsters in the oggin with those pale British shins.

I see your creel predicament still places you at that lonely hill Mr Twotter

Am about to put my life in the hands of airsouthwest in a couple of hours and wont have net access for a week so my final move this year (possibly)..

Merry christmas to you all (including those poor souls unfortunate enough to be spending it at Dollis Hill)

I think a junction is in order, which allows two moves. Alas, the only two moves possible is this. So tantalisingly close, but it's just a Passing Through Double Junction, so the game isn't won.

Wowee - lots of progress since I last looked in.

Since today is Christmas Eve, I'd love to wish allmy fellow Crescenters a very Merry Christmas, a happy New Year and remind them to take their "Pott's M.C. Almanac" to bed with them tonight so that Santa may bless it (with his red lipstick) so that they may continue to play to the current high standards.

And with that, Marble Arch so I can pop in to The Cumberland for a nice Chrissy dinner.

Wow - I am amazed .... 6 days away and there has been some astounding and phenomoneal (sp) play here ... very impressive.

So how about a trip to Dollis Hill?

Looking at this post I can see someone needs to raise the bar beyond 'enthusiastic amateurs'.

A sideways eliptical slide takes you to Leytonstone, thats at least 75 moves to MC at the current level of play, mind your nuts on the loose rail clip at the end of the platform otherwise someone be calling for the Castro options making MC almost impossible.

For those of you that didn't hear it, Andrew Marr presented a programme on BBC Radio 4 this morning (24th) dedicated to Mornington Cresent, it even included extracts from the "Ashes" test match version of the game, recorded live as the famous thrashing was taking place.

The thing that I wasn't aware of, was, that apparrantly, there are two versions of the game - league and union - so which is this??
