well, being cheeky is one thing.....


but, the Abercrombie Cringing Society suggests that if I play Perivale, I can avoid being further slated for 2 turns....

Hah - Wednesday ever closer. And we all know what that means!

Putney Bridge

Dollis Hill notwithstanding.

Hmmm... *must avoid the Dollis Hill loop...*

Moorgate, leaving placemarkers at Earls Court and Euston (mainline only).

Having successfuly shunted the bilateral of the Central and Victoria lines, I now declare that Rule 17b-3(d) of the 1928 Finchley Ruleset is in operation. Be careful.

Basic Greives' Rules but with no blocking, shunting or bargeing. Looping is allowed but only during power play..

A most adequate repost there, Woolyalan.

To get over this, I enact the Viaduct Ruling, and claim

Tooting Broadway

Most adequate! Either that is a deliberate understatement, or Woolyalan has had private tuition or a fluke.
Foray
Laterally
Under
Kensington
East

You will recall there is not a Kensington East Underground station. We must be thankful for a withheld move by Woolyalan
Whereupon I suggest Canons Park

No way, wooly. You've most definitely been attending Sharpers Slicastic School, only a true believer would have picked it up. No way are you a naive player. So come on, follow:

Morden

For those of you who really don't know how to play, may I recommend the book entitled "The Little Book of Mornington Crescent" or, indeed, the bible, "Stovold's MC Almanac". Well worth a few quid

Finchley Rules have been in operation for a few rotations already, Mr Reuter. One trusts one has come equipped with hedgehog loincloth and cardboard cut out pistols as decreed in Para 23c, subclause 107. Failure to appear so attired and with one's custard clutched firmly in the left hand could see us all spending time in *gasp!*, Dollis Hill....

However, McTrundle's Fermanagh Endeavour should release the noxious odours and see us safely to

Chorleywood

Thank you Mr Twotter. I must confess that my long held interpretation of the 1937 Bulgarian Settlement was that the Finchley Ruleset overrode any amendments made to the Grieves Rules at the outset of play and thereby allowed shunting where two placemarkers are left but I am willing to defer to the general feeling of the board on this point.

I shall therefore call Notting Hill Gate and declare krinksfold over the Circle Line.

SRT, you forgot the tricorne made out of an old tea towel. This means that your, I must say uncharacteristically clumsy, observation of the rules cancels your move (and R77's subsequent move) under the double default rule and condemns us, gasp , to Dollis Hill.

Am I correct in thinking that a triple infarction has occurred??

If so play can now move to


Wimbledon

It appears one is in krinksfold and confined to Dollis Hill for the foreseeable. These situations have been known to escalate and cause creel. Antburglar's commentaries re the Extended Sweep are most enlightening and should keep one amused until the Nv reaches 27% of the cotangent rotational velocity, allowing one a thring via the oscillation of the related moving walkways.

Oh well....

Dollis Hill

Well, we are truly stuck in creel and, as it stands, we are in the loop. As you say SRT, we are going to have to increase the cotangent rotational velocity in progressive moves. My contribution will inevitably lead us back to Dollis Hill. However, after this I sense an opening that will allow a careful move into open play...

I get it now...

So, if you manage to avoid tripping over a corpse in Badgers Drift, you get to pass Go, collect 200 quid, and stay out of jail.

Please, carry on

Sounds like you would be a natural at MC!

I don't immediately recall an America Lady player of MC perhaps we should invite AcroChik. I would prefer play without Ten Gallon Hat and the attire of bareback riding. Equestrianism is preferable.
As it is to the west like AcroChik. I shall deploy a Philidelphia, move, Amersham

Oooh! A lateral slipchop manouevre! Not seen since the great Trundle debacle of the 1930s. Well well well, who'd have thought it.

Invoking the overhead turnstile from the Cirbbins vs. Altersnot, have Finsbury Park
