I don't know how to play this game.  However, I'm going to travel by the Central Line all the way from Tottenham Court Road to the BBC at White City to ask why there's so little worth watching on TV tonight ...

So my answer is White City.

Have I followed the rules?

Are we using the classic King George rules or the modern Latte variant? If the latter then you're OK Viv but if we're playing the classic then that move is just crazy. You can't play a White City as it's a cross tangent.

Moderator, can we have confirmation please?

I think that if you look at the first two moves you will see that we are playing neither set of the rules you mention. The second move is the classic 'Finsbury Shuffle' which as you should know is only allowed if playing the 'Duchy of Cornwall' variant much loved by Charles and Camilla and often played at Buckingham Palace during the summer months. weather Permitting of course. The little known fact about this is that Diana could never master this version and Charles looked to Camilla as a Partner in 'Duets' adding fuel to the fire in rumours of an affair. A rumour that has now resulted in Diana's death and the subsequent marriage of Chaz and the horse!

Thanks for correcting me on the Duchy rules, how stupid to forget the simplest of things!

I accept your doubling and nominate Tooting Broadway as trumps, and I'll play Kennington Oval.

Well if your gonna play Kennington Oval with a trump then according to the Duchy rules I have to take a central line station so East Acton it has to be and with that I have cancelled your trump and regained my double.. Sorry - you forced my hand.........I had no choice but to play an Acton and East was all I had. Beat that Suckers!

Wow, you see a move like that and one has to stand back and appreciate the sheer audacity and sharpness of mind. I'll have to go on a defensive lateral and pull out Penge.

Bugger. Penge...................I'll have to give up the whole of the Jubilee now! i nearly had it in the bag as well. I am afraid all I can go with is my double I regained earlier.

Richmond and Chiswick.

I know it's piss poor but after losing my Jubilee line I am running low.

Can I still keep my Northern line - Not sure what I can and can't keep after a Pengeing? I know in the trad format I have to give up all completed lines but I think it's different in Duchy rules?

Anyone shed any light?

Having checked the Transport for London Website it says there are a lot of station closures tonight between 2 & 3 AM.

Also the M1 will be closed for repairs at the same time.......

Which renders my only possible next move Watford Gap. Damn these updates, the original guys never battled real information.
