An truly marvellous move Jordan, and you said you didn't know the rules. You could very easily have put us into knip there.

Unfortunately, you forgot about the triple Arnos manoeuvre made famous by Thrupplethwaite and Simmonite in the IMCA conference of 1879. I just hope that PPRuNe is more civilised and we manage to avoid the riots that occurred during this event.

So the triple Arnos takes me to Mornington Crescent.

Ha ha - I win!

NO!!!

I gave them your room number.
Whoops TIM. Despite my hungover state I recognised that the bar bill was not mine unless I was buying some pretty exotic cocktails for the disreputable ladies who tend form the 'hangers on' at Founders Meeting's. Well, I can only blame my somewhat ill state, because I therefore assumed it was Lukeafb1's bar bill which he charged to my room in one of his joking moments. Anyway, by a fair amount of quick talking I explained this to the poor girl at reception who arranged for the bill to be put on Lukeafb1's bill. It would therefore seem, TIM, that Lukeafb1 paid your bar bill.

Anyway, it seems ramsrc finished the match in a legal, albeit untidy, completion move. Time for another match and give Jordan some more practice, although the only starting move I can think is:

Kuznetsky Most

Which, quite frankly is an act of desparation because it is the closet Moscow Metro station to the fairly tidy internet cafe where I am on the last of my 40 Roubles credit and have no time to search for the London Underground map before rushing to the airport.

Well it may be an act of desperation, Evening Star but it gives me the classic following move to ...

A ha! A classic knib and so early in the game. I will attempt a sheep pass to;

If I'm following Berievs' classic 1924 interpretation of the rules correctly I'll shank you with

Polezhayevskaya

For the unitiated this thwarts transverse, scantling or contrariwise counters

I was under the illusion we were not using Berievs, but OK - I'll let that one pass.

Using Efremovs Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya line rule, I will head down to Vykhino at the extent of the network.

Get out of that one!!!

Get out of that one? Too easy!

Using the Svomerf Ayaksnenserponsark-Oksnagat (which is the reverse Fremov's Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya), I can head quickly back up the line then off at a tangent to ...

Sikorsky's Leap.

Ha! Beat that!

Lukeafb1,
I take offence to that remark sir!

I was only asking a question, and you start mouthing off about me being
a well known inbred whose trolley had long since parted from its wheels
I clearly stated that I had no knowledge of the outcome of his attempt, therefore I wished clarification, not abuse!

Sir, you have insulted my heritage, and I throw the gauntlet at your feet!

One move, next post. Only the station typed, no explanations of the move involved. Closest in moves to Mornington Crescent wins. The third poster after both our moves (hopefully a person who knows the game) will decide the winner.

What absolute heaven!!!

I cannot give you detail of my next move or how I arrived at it for laughing at poor lukeafb1 misfortune.

Today I am so happy!!!

You can't do that - it will shunt the game into Morton's third parallel and it could take us months to get out of the resulting cluck.

No, no, no. Dear me, what IS the world coming to? You have to slap him lightly across the face with the said gauntlet and advise him that your seconds will call on him in the morning. Gottit??

Okay, on to ...

Absolut Garbidj.

Is that a new flavour of a well know Vodka?

As it is Friday and I am located in Germany - I am allowed to implement Schmidts first rule of Knettenbrech and move the action to Frankfurt.

Wow what a superb move ramsrc

Reminds me of the 1956 all England Mornington Crescent Finals played in Skegness. Brigadier Timothy Tottington had just made his "piss de resistance" as he called it. He had moved us to Frankfurt of all places. No-one knew anything about Frankfurt and the move stood. "Time out--- Time out" was the cry.
Rule 26a (appendix b.iv) of the Cresenters German almanac states , and I quote-

Das ift de spelen comen vron de oust und ended inen Frankfurten angabot, den the spelen ist okun. Aber von de norded dat izt nicks gut.

We knew he had us by the short und curlies. Our only saving grace was a young lady called Saving Grace who, in the silence, muttered " Dee only vay outen hast gotten tubee

Hauptefriedhof

Indeed it was and the game continued

Just off to lunch - so to stall the game for a while I will put it into a double goat knib. Made famous (as of course you know TIM) by Kravenitsch in the 1644 conference.

Just in case you don't remember check Volume 34 of the abridged rules page 4012 6 (iii). I think you will find the move in order:

The sound of a massed, sharp intake of breath was heard as everyone pondered the meaning of that radical move ... and what they might possibly do about it.

Pass.

OUTRAGEOUS! I have never heard anything like it in a civilised game.

The last time such words were uttered must have been in the Italian, British (not so) friendly of 1975. We all know what happened after that.

I suggest we use Burlington Original Rules this time.
No reverse badgering.
Swedish inversions are only allowed to get out of a Dollis loop.
Rule 221b applies.
Shunting is allowed

ABSOLUTELY NO SNAPE DRIFTING ALLOWED.

If memory serves me correctly, that strategy was used at the Battle of Waterloo by Lord Cardigan; and therefore has absolutely nothing to do with Mornington Crescent strategy. What the the hell got into you ramsc? Please apologise immediately and reconsider your playing strategy! Moving on, I give you.......CANNON STREET.

Lukeafb, since you have not defended yourself to me, and ignored the gauntlet at your feet, I take it as a forfeit. Forever more when someone mentions you and Mornington Crescent, they shall say......

coward!
