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.

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.

A note to people who are totally bemused by this:

Mornington Crescent is actually quite funny when played by talented comics.

It is, however, somewhat dull (as you've probably noticed) when someone like Edain decides to take it up as a (doubtlessly shortlived) new hobby

A certain comic understanding is needed to play it well. That is almost totally lacking in tis thread.

Herself is off in London for a meeting today, actually getting off at Mornington Crescent. Can I claim the winner's prize using the Spouse's Default option?

Let's get this straight, Roger --- she told you she's going to a meeting, but she's actually getting off in Mornington Crescent? I must say, you take such cuckoldry in remarkably good spirit!
