When nothing else will do - Mornington Crescent anyone?
388

NicolaMarlowsMerlin · 15/10/2020 13:25

Feels like we could all do with a robust tournament round about now. May I start?

I know this is cheeky, but I’ll begin with...

...Osterley

ooohhhh!!! An intriguing start.
Given the current rule of 6 I'm going to play it safe with a sideways move to

Goldhawk Rd

Great Idea!

Blackfriars (it needs to be visited )

In that case, it will have to be Edgware Road.

Pimlico - unless we are using the Mancunian strategy?
In which case...Parsons Green.

Given the circumstances, I am going to take advantage of the Exceptional Protocol and go for

Aldwych

A little known clause in the Mancunian strategy (which can only be used under the Exceptional Protocol) allows play to jump up to the Tyne and Wear Metro, so I'm going for Pelaw.

Loving the Tyne and Wear Metro version with the tricky junction move, but to continue - Manors.

Steering things back to a more conventional footing with the Rumsfeldt manouevre - Elephant and Castle.

Ah you’ve played Rumsfeldt before I got in there. I think the appropriate response is the Franklin folly - I’m playing Stonebridge Park.

I see the northern end of the Bakerloo line being used in the evening peak, the only time it is permitted under the 1972 rules. I shall make use of the London Overground rule and end up at West Hampstead.

I see your West Hampstead and raise you to Harrow-on-the-Hill.

Clearly the fact that London is about to be tier 2 has been missed from some people's strategies.

A potentially controversial move to Parsons Green

I'm usurping Parsons Green and swerving to Loughton.

I'm deploying a little-known finesse to slide to Bayswater.

The Exceptional Protocol also calls for a double bluff with the jump to the Tyne & Wear Metro with a calling at Monument.

It's been a long time since I've played Mornington Crescent! So forgive me if I am a little rusty, I suspect there have been many a rule upgrade in recent months I've not quite been privy to!

If I may play by the old rules of 2010 with the Billingtons Bluff heading to Camden Town and then diverting very quickly with the Wellington Weasling to end up at Southwark via Temple.

Kensal Green. A daring strategy, I know, but I’m hoping it will pay off.

A predictable, but, I hope, solid move to Morden.

Well, if eight minutes is a long time, then the trek required for the official interchange between Euston and King’s Cross is even longer.
With respect for the map: Tooting Bec.
