Oops! Unfortunately, Phot posted while I was in the process of composing my message/move. I'm afraid I'll have to invoke the "Out of Sequence Penalty conjugations" in Section XII, and change my move to the Blue Ball in Deepcar. It messes up my diagonal though, so I don't get the double points after all...

Being an old hand and orginator of the Sheffield diversion via the Royal at Dungworth, I do claim the right to use a book.


From "Stovold's Mornington Crescent Almanac 2002". (Orion Books 2001)
(ISBN 0-75284-729-5)


"if the game refuses to shut down then several courses of action may be tried:

Advance your slappings and sacrifice Bethnal Green. North's partner will be forced to trump. Say "Mornington Crescent" whether you have prised open your laterals or not".

Well, actually, when this thread was kicked off by Edain, you could have got to Mornington Crescent from High Barnet direct, no bother, without playing the game. Or even (as suggested by Edain) from Morden this morning.

When last seen (about 3 hours ago), there were no trains between Finchley Central and High Barnet on account of another problem on the Northern line.

Who needs a game, when the real thing is now quite surreal?

To be honest, I thought there were some rather witty posts (a couple made me LOL!). Yes, it's silly... but it's FUN! At least, some people think so. If you don't, why didja bother reading this far? :-(

I can do little except quote from "Stovold" again:

Checklist

Is there anyone with you who also wants to play the game?

Has the plug been inserted?If so remover it discreetly and make yourself comfortable

Has the wall been laid out properly with the funnel in place?

If none of the above problems apply then say "Westbourne Crescent" and in the ensuing argument the game will self-start. Looks to me that's what's happening here.

I have been lucky enough to enjoy many trips on the underground with the beautiful Samantha, but one of my favorite memories was a southbound journey on the Northern Line.

Dare I bring in a note of Music with Chicago Transit Authority

Guessed, am puzzled... what's the connection between the CTA and music? (You weren't thinking of the MTA --
"He may ride forever neath the streets of Boston" -- were you?)

Gray D, if you're thinking along those lines, I suggest "Daggers" (i.e. Dagenham) Station -- via the Thatcher Connection.

note for non-UK residents: "Daggers" was the nickname for Maggie Thatcher (towards the end of her "reign")
cos Dagenham is "just two stops short of Barking!"
)


On to the serious business at hand...
          taking advantage of the provisional Rover stipulations:

Isidis Planitia (via the "Beagle" Line extension)

...gee, it's dark down here...
