Sorry, I'm going to have to South Kenton that and with a Grand Double on Embankment , King's Cross St. Pancras is "Hors de combat" unless someone can offer a Ravenscourt Park to Monument "En Passant".

I believe my Bank covers your Monument, and I can show you a Wanstead/Woodford loop.  Oldfashioned, I know, but effective.

Ha! I can't believe you fell for that!  I play a Dollis Hill "En Crouette" and with that, unless your willing to sacrifice the entire Northern Line, you will have to go to West Ruislip , forfeit your next third move and take a "Chartreuse Penalty"  each time you pass through Earl's Court.

In preparation for this sad day Samantha has been going to embalming classes, apparently she can't wait to get her hands on the big old stiff one last time.

Thanks Humph.

In Memory of Mr Lyttleton may I declare him the posthumous winner and call this match to a halt. If it wasn't for him I would never have learned the 'Dumfrys Shuffle' and the 'Quantum flux' - two moves that helped me come 33rd in the North Evesham Cubs and Brownies 'Centenery Quimp' in April last Year.

RIP Humph and Gawd bless ya!

Thank you all so very much for taking part in this little excercise.
You have restored my faith in the barmy, silly and happy nature that is the TRUE heart of this island nation.

You made a middle aged man very happy .... oh how I laughed

I believe the correct ending for this game should always be The Aldwitch

If you are proposing that we now adopt the East Prussian rules, of which, long practitioners would know.
In 1899 the German Baron, Helmut Von Wrinkledtoger, puportedly played Edware to great effect, however, I myself would always prefer the Fokker Variation .... ergo;

Cockfosters

An interesting opening move but times have changed and if your not careful you could easily get Scheimphlugged!!!

My response is Heathrow.

Sorry I have missed this game for some time, it's a shame as I had my Hampton Court.

And that would have been a fine move to play after Heathrow as we all know.

However given due consideration to the rules, to the day and to the enduring legacy of Barbara Cartland, I should like to play along Old Compton Street.

An interesting move, if a little off-track, [but that's East Prussian rules for you!], just take care not to get caught out in Burlington Arcade as Otto Von Bismark once did.

I shall play Earl's Court. No doubt, you'll recognise that as being the classic 'Heimlich Manouvre' as played by Baron Von Richthoven, but it will be interesting to see if you can come up with the 'Goldberg Variation' response as played by Max Bialistock at the Brest Litovsk Biennialle in 1926.
