Aahhh, the Fabulous Flying Farkle Bros. One well remembers their triumph at the 1987 Woodmead International. Perhaps something less daring than that august display of skill and timing, yet still leaving a frisson of excitement...

Hmmmmmm....................

the old game alive and well, eh?

I'll get back to this one, call in a Knowledgable Shunt

Kingswood

Next player must name the line this station is on, and then he or she may call whatever station on the London Met system he or she so chooses. Otherwise, it goes into loop.

A clue: Coill an Ri

Good hunting!

Duress of work? You need to take a break because you gifted me an easy Notting Hill Gate.

Takes us to Moorgate. Beware, the obvious response of Holland Park will surely lead us into knid.

Curses!

To avoid knid, one is now forced to employ a Canterbury Lateral Repulsive Deviation to

Paddington

Children, children - as an invested Humph, in the context of another game, I shall make an intricate and very careful move to Southwark. See if you can work out why.

Jordan, I believe you have just employed a Barrington splithammer bifurcated reflex gambit..very nicely carried out also!!

With one small exception..you failed to take into account the Lv so therefore we are now stuck at..

Dollis Hill

aye 'oop Twotter!!

Luckily only a small increase in Lv was required in this instance.

Jordan,one directs you to the 160306z ammendment to the Arlington '34 adjunct (seconded by B.Wetherspoon).

This should sort the wheat from the chaff..

Kew Gardens

Guess which gambit that little corker was!!

Sneaky E-M, oh so sneaky. Actually recognise the gambit, but it is so rare that the name eludes me for the moment. Anyway, Kennington strikes me as the sort of riposte that should suit your ingenius line of play.

I certainly didn't come here to get involved, but that gives me the perfect opportunity to re-live the satisfying feeling of a converse Engelbert which (I think you'll agree rather neatly) leads us to Theydon Bois.

Now I'm going to walk away with my head held high before it gets personal...

Wasn't use of the Converse Engelbert banned after the unfortunate incident with the dwarf and the cricket bat at the Oberndorf Convivium?

Nevertheless...

A converse Engelbert most certainly is allowed under the Ardball ruleset and one applauds the bravery required in its usage!!

Hats off

Time for a double Hasselhoff!!

Epping..bit out on a limb there chaps so be careful with the next move..

Check the latest Cribbits' ammendment

Yes it was, at 2002 Convivium I believe. I'm pleased to say that the Governing Body of the Southern Region held a full enquiry and deemed the protagonists innocent of all charges. I saw the dwarf just last week, think he was on a business trip to Ottawa, and doing well for himself it seems...

Anyway, I digress, and will tip-toe around the knid-teaser you laid down rather cleverly, and offer a resoundingly uncomplicated but nonetheless tactile Humber Slide to Pontoon Dock.

Not so fast there...Mr brown!!

This gambit first played by Mr J Gruyere some time in the fifties will surely place you in knid..

Behold the Quiff-killer!!!

Bit hasty there with the Quiff-killer E-M, as that leaves the only legal move as ending up at, I dread to say, Dollis Hill ... Noooooooooo .
