Belham. Grrr!  And the niblet stick in Jar with Louis.

Good luck, Ames, I believe you're up. How are you at carom shots?  Or is it Tony... I've lost track now.  Who's got the button?

That's all fine and dandy, but I wonder if you all have REALLY thought this out completely.  And, for that, you've given my quite the advantage.

Cabbage patch by bookend?  Risky, but could pay off well.

Huntzinger with antipasta?  I relish the thought, but it seems a bit, umm, whitebread to me.

Nostalgia for the Davetard 5?  That could work.

I don't know, my options at this point are wide open.  I can't decide. . . . . . .

Oh, wait - I have it!!!    Shatner on the old gray mare!!  (I know, I know, Carlson will hate me for that one but I do wish to be competitive.)

After that, it's pretty easy - end at Monument Valley Tower, shirtless for HMTQ.

I. Luvitseau!!!

Monument?  From Balham?!?!?.

Okay I'm officially lost.  I thought the previous Elephant and Castle play broke the Northern to District/Circle transfer, and jeffox could only reach Monument via Tottenham?

Oh, right, Open Orifice.

Well played, sir!

So???

I don't see your point. Even though it puts him auf der Uhr, he can just take the 137 from Balham to Pim--... oh, shhh... Hospital Proximity!  The Lord Cumberland Incident really buggered things up, didn't it.  Too bad, Chelsea Bridge is usually a good way to filter the upper harmonics.

This should be interesting.

Well, since the diagonal parks have been opened, and reversals have advanced by more than a radian (according to the 1948 London Reconstruction addendum, which I trust we are operating under), this opens up the possibility of negative line velocity. Which means that the earlier play has to be transfigured:

Oh well, if Louis' opened up the Masonic pathway then it seems a shame not to use it.

I know it may be seen as radical in the everso stuffy corridors of bah-humbuggery inhabited by Louis, Tom and fnxtr where only Stovold will do (which is roughly equivalent to the King James Version only movement) but the advent of the DLR has added an extra dimension to this game.

So thanks to the Masonic reference of the double pillars of the old Naval College (now University) of Greenwich, I get to leave Knid and outflank the lot of you.

Cutty Sark.

HA!

Totally inapropos metaphor. It's more like you're shunting diagonally across the Northern Line, with escalators wild.

As to "intelligent life", sir, I'll have you know that more than one commentator has referred to Mornington Crescent as "Chess for the mind".

I admire your innovative thinking, but you seem to have forgotten about the five blue tokens pegged at the Euston entrance. Since the public convenience there has been out of order for at least a week (didn't know that, did you?), I get to contra-lateral via Oxford Circus (moving widdershins, of course), which brings me to:

Mornington Crescent!

Nice game, all.

I assume you have shown the moderator your Supercharge Smartcard with at least three yellow stars collected? Otherwise the move from Cutty Sark only takes you as far as Holborn.

Still, if that's game, well done everyone. Fancy another?

That was exactly my point, but you've managed to express it more eloquently. I'm glad you understand.

Nice game, all.

It's this sort of utter disregard for the conventions of Mornington Crescent what causes unrest.

Firstly, trying to move widdershins from Oxford Circus (having left Cutty Sark, which was an inspired move from HuwP, getting himself out of Knid, putting the rest of us in Spoon and changing the laterals to Islets of Langerhans) is a Forbidden Contract under the Great Treaty of 1612 in which, might I remind you we beat the French (always important).

Secondly, the public convenience at Euston has been augmented by the permission of the McDonalds Corporation franchise located nearby in permitting McShits, and even a McShit with Lies*, at all hours. This admirably covers the shitehouse shortfall.

Thirdly, and perhaps most significantly, you have tried to make two moves. You intend to go to Mornignton Crescent via Oxford Circus. That is a move involving two stations. If we could, will-he nill-he, merrily stroll via two stations any time we pleased then anyone one could win the game at any time. It would be like there were no rules at all. This, sir, is an-fucking-outrage!

Fouthly, and above all finally, elevators are wild. If you people cannot incorporate the simplest aspects of the game then I despair, I really do. Perhaps you might find this instructional video of some value.

Since, by sheer dint of luck overcoming judgement (and luckily judgement just loves to be come over), fnxtr has made a legal move to Kensal Rise. We can only thank him for this as otherwise play would have had to be abndoned and a Disquisition would have had to be organised.

Thus I can only move to London Bridge in the hope of restoring some sanity.

FrankH has clearly missed the point and is raving uncontrollably. Shame. It happens to the elderly.

Louis

*Engaging in a McShit is the practise of, after an extensive night on the beers, creeping half cut into an early (~6am) McDonalds and taking what can only be described as an epic shite in their freshly cleaned toilets. A McShit with Lies is where, on entering the premises and being caught by an employee, one has to indicate that one will be returning from the shitehouse to purchase breakfast, even though one has no real intention of doing so.

You're throwing 1612 in our faces after opening up the Masonic Routing Schemata?

If you're going to declare your allegiance to CAMREC, then go ahead and do so openly, but don't hide under that old triple tree of 1612. You of all people ought to know where that leads.

Your compatriot the late great Mrs. Trellis would be ashamed for you.

And, just as a reminder, rotation widdershins about a circus does not actually involve the station in question, even if the play is made "via" that station. If I had been forced to traverse spinward, you'd have had a valid objection, but that route was blocked due to YOUR EARLIER OPENING OF THE MASONIC SCHEMATA. I hope you can see that this would be true even if the year 1612 had never occurred.

Finally, the less said about your "McShit with Lies" the better. (We're not playing the Fleet Ditch addendum, remember?)

A McShit with Lies is where, on entering the premises and being caught by an employee, one has to indicate that one will be returning from the shitehouse to purchase breakfast, even though one has no real intention of doing so.

To be or not to be, that is the end game.  Whether the weather cause atmospheric fluctuations in the gyroscope of the panda, the game is still that to which we ignore.

With that farted into the wind, baring a repeal of the redux of the Great Plague of 1944*, the poster to whom I have dedicated this post to has decided that a move from Widdershins from Oxford Circus is forbidden.  We all know that to be utter bunk as the Great Treaty was null and void.

To further stress my point a move from Homerton to Old Street where as one can Abe it up and reminisce how onions were the fashions off of the belt** shows the ideal of the blue haired woman.  It is this blue haired woman who takes leave of her sense and cents and proceeds to find Euro all over her.

Further, the idea that one can't make a two station move means that there is no cheese left in the entirety of the game.  With no cheese, there is no one to cut the cheese and the whole premise falls flat into disuse.

Which requires a new device to complete the journey.  That device, a new compact to help things grow and evolve around the newness of the situation where you find you leave your senses.  Legally speaking, he previous poster is only half right*** but always totally wrong.  To complete this passage, if you will, you would proceed to be a new covenant therefore the correct and only legal move would therefore go to Covenant Garden.

*The Great Plague of 1944 was the start to which many a good Englishman forcefully claims that his dad died fighting Gerry and is most definitely not a by product of a lonely British bird and a horny American GI

**Depending on the local you might find yourself in a full Nelson after leaving the Tube especially if you thought you were riding Bart

***A product of his wit no doubt

If we could, will-he nill-he, merrily stroll via two stations any time we pleased then anyone one could win the game at any time. It would be like there were no rules at all. This, sir, is an-fucking-outrage!

Fouthly, and above all finally, elevators are wild. If you people cannot incorporate the simplest aspects of the game then I despair, I really do. Perhaps you might find this instructional video of some value.

Since, by sheer dint of luck overcoming judgement (and luckily judgement just loves to be come over), fnxtr has made a legal move to Kensal Rise. We can only thank him for this as otherwise play would have had to be abndoned and a Disquisition would have had to be organised.

Thus I can only move to London Bridge in the hope of restoring some sanity.

FrankH has clearly missed the point and is raving uncontrollably. Shame. It happens to the elderly.

*Engaging in a McShit is the practise of, after an extensive night on the beers, creeping half cut into an early (~6am) McDonalds and taking what can only be described as an epic shite in their freshly cleaned toilets. A McShit with Lies is where, on entering the premises and being caught by an employee, one has to indicate that one will be returning from the shitehouse to purchase breakfast, even though one has no real intention of doing so.

To be or not to be, that is the end game.  Whether the weather cause atmospheric fluctuations in the gyroscope of the panda, the game is still that to which we ignore.

With that farted into the wind, baring a repeal of the redux of the Great Plague of 1944*, the poster to whom I have dedicated this post to has decided that a move from Widdershins from Oxford Circus is forbidden.  We all know that to be utter bunk as the Great Treaty was null and void.

To further stress my point a move from Homerton to Old Street where as one can Abe it up and reminisce how onions were the fashions off of the belt** shows the ideal of the blue haired woman.  It is this blue haired woman who takes leave of her sense and cents and proceeds to find Euro all over her.

Further, the idea that one can't make a two station move means that there is no cheese left in the entirety of the game.  With no cheese, there is no one to cut the cheese and the whole premise falls flat into disuse.

Which requires a new device to complete the journey.  That device, a new compact to help things grow and evolve around the newness of the situation where you find you leave your senses.  Legally speaking, he previous poster is only half right*** but always totally wrong.  To complete this passage, if you will, you would proceed to be a new covenant therefore the correct and only legal move would therefore go to Covenant Garden.

*The Great Plague of 1944 was the start to which many a good Englishman forcefully claims that his dad died fighting Gerry and is most definitely not a by product of a lonely British bird and a horny American GI

**Depending on the local you might find yourself in a full Nelson after leaving the Tube especially if you thought you were riding Bart

***A product of his wit no doubt

Now you're just making shit up.

Now you're just making shit up.

Which is precisely the route I was taking with Louis.

Please note that the cycles of his bike and his mind twirled inside going down the tracks of his thoughts to the train only to find a runaway.

Over the trestles he pedals faster as the gerbils ride along only to find bridges?  We don't need no stinkin' bridges!

Come on, somebody, move.

Again with elevators! Look, the last time I was on an elevator it broke down. Spent six hours trapped with a mime...a mime that thought it was very funny to that trapped in an invisible box crap while trapped in an elevator. "Scream for help" I said as I stabbed his invisible heart with an invisible stake...I still have nightmares about it.

At any rate, assuming the game is not over, and bearing in mind that elevators are wild (glares at Louis) I think it is appropriate to use the Mcslapmywhut contingency which, of course, uses fractals to alternately randomize linear consecutivities which plings the ingams and say

Ealing Broadway

On the other hand, if the game is over then I will follow the strategy advocated in Thorvald, Ant, Ritenhaus, and Duh's influential and popular Obscene Annotations and Rude Comments on the "Mornington Crescent for Dummies" series and play

FTK: I Didn't answer your questions because it beats the hell out of me.

PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.

Not so fast. . . . that might work here in the states; but, last I looked, this was INTERNATIONAL MC - you've forgotten about the N'orbelquism addendum.  Makes a difference, eh!

Still, good move on your part - great game so far E1!

I'll take Foghat to Bishey Aukland.  This will help my cubed distortion factor and also give myself a few extra tiddlestones.  Oh, and I'll drop the wickey sticket at this point.

While we all seem to be approaching endgame, it's still anybody's game at this point.

Oh, yeah, and I exit at Louis' favorite pub in Spitalfields (made quite famous in the 1887 tourney, so I've history on my side here).  The church here seems quite burnable, but I may be for whom the bell tolls.

Tally Ho!
