Wide open play eh?

I'm going to block with

Green Park

It's my "fitness" station, nicely situated on three lines but within walking distance to most places of interest  (RNC bondage clubs, etc) and on the nice day you can walk from there to where you want to go.

OK, well, it's my turn again.  Hmmm.

I'll thicken my skin and avoid being detected at the same time.  

Hyde Park.

En Garde!

Yes, I see it is up to me to bust this game wide open with a stroke so daring, so bold, so full of vision that it will go down in history*

Elephant and Castle

Bad time to get back into this game: the helical stress is signaling an impending token vortex. I'll try to dissipate some strain by playing:

South Acton.

I guess so. Carry on.

Having fulfilled my "time out" session brought upon by the illegal, but uncalled move by not one but two members of this game (and by the Treaty of Odessa I am not allowed to give their names nor even spell them out), I think the next move for me to take, well, it's so simple and so noble:

"Barons Court"

Well, the obvious - and some would say pedestrian - response to that would be Prince Regent. However, I am going to say

Paddington

But only because I like that nice little bear....

Well since I've just found out that Simon Singh has just won the right to appeal a previous ruling that he libelled some chiropractors I can only move to Chancery Lane in celebration.*

Louis

*Although I suppose Temple would also be appropriate in terms of location. However this would have involved a Northern Approach without an appropriate shift of the Diagonals. Also, since no one has applied for a repeal, elevators are still wild, and I think we all know what that means for a move to Temple from a Major Interchange. {Snigger}

I apply for a repeal...elevators blech...did I mention my experience with the mime? By the way why is Amadan complaining about neo-Stovoldites when he has just made the quintessential neo-Stovoldite move?

At any rate he forgot to renumberate the denomberator which sets up a cross digital flux in the lycanthrope contingency  which sets it to 007 and allows me to play:

Bond Street

Afarensis fails to appreciate that my complaints, like the rails of the Underground, are ironic.

The correct term is Neo-Stovoldists. And there is nothing Neo about them.

Might I remind you that it was in the year 239 BH (Before Humph) that Neo-Stovoldism arose from the ashes of the Stovoldist picture of the Underground when Wembley Park was discovered and the work of Pescatorian and others united the disciplines of Kew Gardening and Classical Stovoldian Transporting.

The resulting Neo-Stovoldian picture of the Underground has been modfied by new extensions and stations in the subsequent centuries but to deny the central explanatory framework for the Underground that Neo-Stovoldism gives us is an act of purest Paleystreetism, and heavily inflenced by specific anti-Morningtonian religious dogmas. I should remind you also that Paley Street is not even on the Underground system, and thus does in no way form part of the game of Mornington Crescent, despite Michael Parkinson owning a very nice pub there.

Louis

P.S. Afarensis: Your application for a repeal of Wild Elevators is denied on the grounds that it was incorrectly formatted and not stapled to a sufficient bribe.

Some say it is, but happily they are wrong. It just turned out that way. Although it could be said that Crossrail is a deliberate attempt to force the two into conjunction...

I expect it to win the Templeton Prize {gag, spit}.

It's a nice day, hardly any sleet or freezing fog to speak of, so I decided to walk from

Green Park

to

Piccadilly Circus

but got turned around as usual and ended up at

Charing Cross

I'll head south to

Lambeth North

I know a pub there that keeps a month-old keg of Bass, overgassed, and does a nice pork pie, or it might be jellied eel, I can never tell.

Drinks on me.

And, incidentally, not that I'm one to complain BUT I thought my

"use a sole, save an oyster"

comment was subtle, witty and just plain damned clever.  I laughed myself to sleep, printed it out and framed it for future mirth.

Yet POTW went to the comment that said "balls!"

No justice, I tell you, no justice.

However generous you are with the drinks, it's still one move per turn.

Which one do you want? Green Park (nice for the Ritz), Piccadilly Circus (nice for the rent boys), Charing Cross (nice for trying to get to Kent sometime that year), or Lambeth North (nice for, well pretty much sod all as it goes)?

It isn't just you Doc Bill, many of our newer players are trying to pull as many stops as they can per turn. These multi-stop moves are beginning to disrupt play. Any more of this sort of nonsense and I'll have to start invoking Crebbit's Rule.

Nonsense!

McCormick's Rule clearly states that a player may traverse multiple stations in a single turn if on foot in inclement weather provided the player neither breaks down and cries nor asks for direction, which, as a Real Man I am genetically incapable of either.

But, ha and double ha, the joke's on you as I wend my way to

London Bridge

which falls down less after two pints than Louis!

"and by the time I'm sober I've forgotten what I've 'ad,   and everybody tells me that it's cool to be a cat.."

... but all stations between begin and end walking points, especially in the rain or sleet on slippery sidewalks (double your tokens if you're wearing smooth-soled Oxfords or similar footwear), are still open for play.

This is known as the Slide Rule.

They're going to make me do it. They're going to make me invoke Crebbit's Rule, which once voked can never be unvoked. The voking of Crebbit's Rule is serious, I'm warning you. Don't make me do it.
