    No, you left a way out - Queen's Park...

    You are all sounding very smug with yourselves, but in my day the Piccaddily line did not stop at Turhnam Green during the week!

    So that has left Rayners Lane open for most of the week.

    Or am I showing my age?

    Putney Bridge then - given we're revisiting places from my childhood (though my childhood is more recent than yours methinks...).
     
  5. Excellent, I thought we were due another game.....

    Much as I hesitate to leave my laterals wide open....

    QUEX ROAD.

    Ordinarily of course, OckahsmRazor would be right to presume that no further play could be made until daylight. However, if he'd checked back a few pages, he'd have seen that we did indeed 'go Mainline' for a while, so all-nights are allowed. Hence:

    COCKFOSTERS


    Let's see what he makes of that upon his return, hehe

    swansea.....
     
  10. No no no no no! You'd best go back to Cockfosters and try that move again, Daisyslot.

     
  11. Actually I think Daisy is okay with Swansea. The Mainline variation into Wales came into play last night.

    Didcot Parkway

    Should move us back...
     
  12. Well, if you're going to make up silly rules, I'm going to take us back to Dollis Hill (so put that in your pipe and smoke it.)

    AH HA
    Didcot Parkway...

    McLaren's 3 Stop rule.....

    MORNINGTON CRESCENT!!!
     
  14. D@mn it, ChilePhilly - I wish I'd been up early enough to spot that. Yes, you've won, but only 'cos of this d@mned mainline variant. Swansea! Didcot! Russell would be turning in his grave.

    Tafkam, I propose a new game, using traditional rules with no variants more radical than DLR extensions.

    So, to start off, with that most traditional of openings (Donovan,1967):
    GOODGE STREET

    Chile, you win this time - but I'm afraid, as footyteacher says, it's only because you took into account a random declaration of mainline variant which hadn't been agreed in committee 'Each individual instance of the game where a mainline variant is requested or required must be referred in the first instance to the co-ordinating committee and in the second instance to central management.'

    Anyway, on with a new game - and I'll respond with a Jubilee gambit... RICHMOND

    Wow, a Jubilee gambit. A brave move sir.

    but then if we're going to play dangerously...

    QUEX ROAD
     
  17. You lot are all weird (or display genius) (or both).

    Elephant and Castle???

    OH! You're playing that old chestnut, are you?

    Get thyself out to UPMINSTER!
