Could anyone who understands this game please help. I was introduced to it over lunch today and my brain exploded.

A but which version? I find the 1965 version where sideways moves count double, and if you bifurcate, you miss a turn, the most fun. You can pass anything during the course of this variation, except wind.
Hope that explains it a bit.

I don't know which version, they were talking about different coloured tokens, Ghosts (which I assumed were ghost stations), Dorris Hill Loops, polarising the diagonals, shunts, line velocities and a million and one other things I didn't follow...

I believe there is a debased version which includes the Docklands Light Railway. But you'd better steer clear of that kind of stuff.

I feel sorry for non-Radio4 addicts whho stumble across this thread. I could be accused of stereotyping but I would love to hear an Englishperson explaining to an American why "Mornington Crescent" is funny. The Irish already know that the English are quaint and lovable eccentrics.

Dont try to explain to Americans why Mornington Crescent is funny. It isnt funny. So highly developed is the English sense of irony that the fact that it isnt funny is reckoned to make it funny.

I'm sorry Morticia, but East Ham violates not having stations with 2 or more 'A's following each other.

I'm no expert, but Kings Cross would have been a good move

I can quite understand how you might not like this game, though I have me suspicion that it's because you're not very good at it, and a bad loser.

I'm at Green Park, I really need to get to Hyde if I'm going to win. Broonzy stuff just distracts

I once lived on Mornington Crescent, while studying at the University of London. It was a not very nice bedsit, second floor (turks above), but it was very close to the University. The dreary bottom end of Camden Town, with dreadful public housing clogging up the streets. A long walk past Euston Station, which, as I recall, was for a substantial part of the time, a serious target for the IRA. I made it a rule never to use the Mornington Crescent tube station (which was bypassed faily often anyway), so I bar myself voluntarily from this game.   

yours, Peter T.
