Lewisham

A highly unfashionable move, but I hope it will be covered in the next edition of the rule book.

Au contraire, Lewisham stakes are rising.

I think I'm right in saying that the only thing I can do with that is the old Fisherman's Friend, which gives us Ealing Broadway.

I've got bored of just spectating and will chime in with Warwick Avenue, which is dull but I'm not chancing another debate over Fry's Tuckbedding manoeuvre by suggesting Kilburn.

So, Warwick Avenue.

Not only do I know what Mornington Crescent is, I despise you all for being able to listen to ISIHAC. I can only find a single decent recording of a game of Mornington Crescent on YouTube.

As scored by the ever fragrent Smantha? Samanth has to rush off now, as she has to meet a new Gentleman friend. He is an Italian icecream maker, and Samantha tells me she likes nothing more than to spend an evening licking the nuts off a large neopolitan............

Which restricts me to the upper qudrant, so, seeing as the chipping-sodbury clause was invoked earlier, I'll go to Edgware Road, although my opponants will have to work out which one from my pattern of play.

One of my in-laws used to play in Humph's band.

That's my distant connection to the great man, and could explain why I'm allowed to go straight to Arnos Grove.

Brixton. There really isn't any other choice with Arnos Grove and Edgware Road both out of play this round.

Almost :-) I met a couple at Woolhampton who had been expecting a formerly industrial town in the midlands and were surprised to find themselves at a sleepy village in Berkshire. I redirected them to Reading and told them to thake the Liverpool Lime Street train stopping at Oxford, Wolverhampton, Birmingham New Street and Liverpool Lime Street only.

Blues.

Interesting.

As the Victoria Line was closed at the weekend for engineering work (as I found out to my cost ) then all its stations are wild for the following week. Thus I move to Warren Street.

Get out of that one!
