MORNINGTON CRESCENT

Discussion in 'Entertainment' started by tafkam, Jun 12, 2007.

  1. Opening the triangle will block any of the three possible reverse draws and would have been better played earlier in the game (before the Central Line has been quartered) so that the risk of a diagonal move would have been negligible, as with the possibility of quartering. Therefore:

    Gallions Reach.
     
  2. Fair enough. But since i am playing facing east surely i could getaway with 'Osterley'

    No way! That move is outlawed under Rule IIIa paragraph 2.2!

    Let's go to Notting Hill Gate and open it out a bit.

    Notting Hill Gate, eh?

    Are we playing post 7/7 Rules with DLC variant?

    Some defensive play needed I think , as jiggery-pokery is surely afoot.....time to invoke Stone and Robertson and their Three Quarter Shift....

    SOUTHWARK BRIDGE
     
  7. Quite possibly...

    Bond Street
     
  8. Ha! Ha! You've fallen into such an obvious trap Wibble73 - 'Bond Street', I ask you!!!

    Eat my shorts with this...

    CANONBURY!

    There's no escaping the inevitable!!

    Damnit - I'm forever starting these games, and then always miss the opportunity to call MC. Hey ho.

    DOLLIS HILL
     
  11. Uh-oh. Not the Dollis Hill/Bank shuffle again. I wonder ... yes, possibly ...

    BULL & BUSH.
     
  12. Victoria.

    And before you ask no you can't use Bonetti's defense. Last person to try that (see Clarke vs Dunston 1765) looked a fool and no mistake.

    KINGS CROSS/ST PANCRAS

    ...which begs the questions - is anyone brave enough to avoid the obvious move, but risk nid?
     
  14. OK - well if everone gets their pets inside i will say it at 6pm

    Chickened out, PaulieR?
     
  16. OK. I can't spot the trap, so I'm going for it:

    MORNI....ah! OK, now I see it! Mandelbrot's conjecture. That was close. In that case:
    MAIDA VALE

    Hehe Mandelbrot's always been a favourite of mine.

    Right.

    Now I've swotted up my Brooks Variant (3rd edition, weekends only)....

    (Isn't it amazing what you discover if you read the Rule Book to the end?! Just hope it's the right edition)

    TOTTERIDGE AND WHETSTONE

    ******. I think I'm in spoon.
     
  20. ChiePhilly, if you read the rule book properly, (I'm using the on-line version with security update 2007-06-10), you have avoided spoon by one stop.

    Time for a quick shuffle to High Holborn.
