I apologise for dragging this thread back .... but I'm bored, my lectures today are dull and I need some amusement ...

can someone explain to me how this game is played? Or at least give me a link to tell me how it is!

Google for the game rules!

I'll get you started with an easy one:

Using the Pattern-Whodyanockabollokov rule of 1946, I suggest moving directly to Dollis Hill

According to the Marquis of Newberry's Rules Amendment of 2001, the move is allowed on any Wednesday in a month of 30 days.

Which also lets me go to ... Wilbury Square.

An unusual gambit that one...

Following the MCC's recent ruling on the DLR eligability, I will use a past participle nib and go to...

Mudchute

(remember only 1 circle line interchange is allowed)

Which brings us to...

St James's Park.

I know that this is a slightly unusual move (not quite the Thomas Gambit, more of a Half-Thomas if you get my drift?), but with the DLR variation rules now in place it does allow the game to proceed rather well. Think it will require a classic response to avoid ending up at West Ruislip.

Jordan, hope it was not one of my lectures? Anyway, to help you understand, this link is rather useful: Mornington Crescent. Good luck!

I do wish you hadn't posted that link ES.

However, now you have, using the Parslow Hyperspace-Wormhole map. Gannymede.


Oh, the horror, the horror!!!!!!!!!!!1

It is indeed a long time since the game visited Gannymede - I seem to remember it featured in the wizpock championship match of 1742.

Echoing the winning move of the above, I return via Betelgeuse to Charing Cross (Jubilee Line)

Thanks for the link - however useless it was ....

At an attempt on the rules, I suggest a move to Tooting Bec

shame i missed out on Gannymede, I could have used a Tom Baker Juxtaposition to Gallifrey...

Anyhoo, I digress. East London Line stations are tricky at the best of times... It doesn't stop me from going to...

Hatton Cross

Itchy, a truly awesome riposte to a very feeble play from under_exposed (and well he should be!). Just one tiny criticism. Your move can only be played on the anniversary of The Battle of Omdurman (September 1898). You will remember from your history books, that Kitchener, assuming the battle was over and being slightly the worse from drink, ordered the troops to advance on Omdurman and was promptly skewered by the fuzzy wuzzies. It not being September and Omdurman not being on the East London Line, the move is consequently rebuffed. Good try though, Itchy. So, returning to reality..........MAIDA VALE (and look out for those pointy sticks!).

Let's just hope that Proot doesn't notice that the game has been rejuvenated!!

Lukeafb1,
I hate to admit it, but you're absolutely right! I have just re-consulted my official rulebook (9th edition with forward by Humphrey Littleton) and lo and behold, pages 12245 and 12246 were in fact stuck together ! Having prized the two pages apart, there was indeed the story of Omdurman! A fascinating tale indeed- one can only gasp in awe at the bravery of those chaps!
...and why were the pages stuck together? Eeer, well, on that page is the only picture ever printed of Samantha and i got a bit carried away.

Moving on swiftly, my next move is a double hop to Aldgate EAST.

Itchy,
How utterly refreshing to see some really sporting play emerging. Itchy has not only played with a straight bat, but given me carte blanche to invoke "Shadrack's Sledge Hammer Violation". I will therefore bowl (over the stumps) a left handed googly and progress to .KENNINGTON........ HOWZAT?

Fortunately, still no sign of Proot!

Discouraged from throwing it away, I have my handy MC matches diary! with all rules transcribed ahahahahaaaaaa!!!!

It being a winter wednesday, and seeing as it's a day past my birthday, I play an Inheritance movement:

Bank

And await your next move!

Oh, but one quandry. Since this is an Inheritance move, and because of the fact the amount of decades on my age have changed making it a Decade Inheritance movement, am I right in saying that due to the "Decade" part I have the honour reserved for me of calling Mornington Crescent when the move arises? There's something in this Diary of it happening to a Lord Milchett, however the legality of the move was questioned, and within the notes the writing has become incomprenensible regarding the outcome.
