I'm going to start with High Street Kensington. A classic start, if I do say so myself.

Jocasta2018 Sun 29-Sep-19 21:53:37

Excellent choice.
Southwark.
Tate Modern, Shakespeares Globe - a more highbrow move!

EmpressLesbianInChair Sun 29-Sep-19 21:54:56

I’m going to take a risk here and say Borough. Backwards.

coffeeagogo Sun 29-Sep-19 21:55:26

A rookie mistake! I am going to implement the reverse caterwaul manoeuvre and play Hainault via Newbury Park

PhysaliaPhysalis Sun 29-Sep-19 21:55:43

It's an obvious move, but Latimer Road

So, Hguorob?

Punishingly @EmpressLesbianInChair for violating Rule 261 (use of two successive capital letters of same standing) I'll take Borough lead and say, Arnos Grove

IrenetheQuaint Sun 29-Sep-19 21:58:00

Ooh! Oxford Circus

AutumnCrow Sun 29-Sep-19 22:00:36

Hguorob

But that would surely lead to Oolretaw and a potential disqualification under The Victoria Funeral rulings (2nd edition, amended) of 1901?

dontdoxmeeither Sun 29-Sep-19 22:01:25

Quite right @AutumnCrow and well spotted

EmpressLesbianInChair Sun 29-Sep-19 22:07:12

Punishingly *@EmpressLesbianInChair for violating Rule 261 (use of two successive capital letters of same standing)*

Which is exactly the reason I called backwards. I was using the Brooke-Taylor variant. I forgot about the Victoria Funeral rulings though. blush

dontdoxmeeither Sun 29-Sep-19 22:08:56

Easy done @EmpressLesbianInChair

Sorry you were caught sad

Anyway, I don't think Euston Square is a bad move under the circumstances?

Kleptronic Sun 29-Sep-19 22:09:50

Yes. Well. Parsons Green.

EmpressLesbianInChair Sun 29-Sep-19 22:12:09

I thought all clerical stations were blocked after 9pm on a Sunday?

Surely it's before 9pm?

Kleptronic Sun 29-Sep-19 22:18:15

9pm where?

dontdoxmeeither Sun 29-Sep-19 22:20:05

It's 9pm North of the Equator and 9am South. Unless it's September.

Kleptronic Sun 29-Sep-19 22:21:41

Ok I rescind Parsons Green and proffer Charing Cross.

RomanMum Sun 29-Sep-19 22:22:20

Has to be Bond Street then..?

dontdoxmeeither Sun 29-Sep-19 22:35:43

It could be @RomanMum if the precedent set by Walshall v Heston 1987 is anything to go by but I'm not the best historian? Can anyone confirm?

RomanMum Sun 29-Sep-19 22:55:24

Rules, rules, rules! Bond Street. I insist. And it's my wedding anniversary so that must surely count for something.

AutumnCrow Sun 29-Sep-19 23:08:24

@RomanMum are you playing the matrimonial disclaimer, because that requires the permission of two-thirds of the current players who are not involved in any way with the ongoing interpretation of Walshall v Heston 1987 (Tracey Island judgements 2001, section 3, para 19).

EmpressLesbianInChair Mon 30-Sep-19 05:09:51

I don’t mind permitting that. Although it’s the next day now so it might be a bit late.

<trying to less bemuse Frappe>

This is risk but ideal to explain the game to a beginner, soI beg forgiveness from the veterans.
