Rats. Just realised that by using Rumbelow I have to sit out my next go.

 

Sorry, didn't mean to mislead you. Rumbelow only would have applied if I had called for the Milan transfer. Which I think means it's your go.

According to the Pendleton Inverse Capacity Rule I now give up my title as Grand Vizier and pass it to a player yet to enter the game. I choose @Thing.

 

This leaves me free to begin moving inwards in the Higgins-Tanglewood Spiral.

Would I be remiss as 2nd Grand Vizier to jump on at Woodford heading for Roding Valley?

Yes - I see what you did there.

 

Oh, well then Baker Street seems to obvious move here, and change on the the Metropolitan line heading south.

Seeing as I don't have correct change to pass the turnstyle, and the gate troll is being particularly obstinate, I shall return to listening to the updates over the loudspeaker. Now if only they would stop switching between swahili and cockney every fourth word with the sixth fourth being in gaelic. It is as if they were unfamiliar with the announcers rules put down in cuniform during the 1875 conference!

I hate to have to invoke this, but...I'm pretty sure that according to the (14th ed) (revised) version of the "Kew (Botanical) Edition"
(Dandelion and Burdock, 1893, p17-45)...

....MORNINGTON CRESCENT!

That, Dear Sirs, and Madam, is called
Kicking Ones Booty!

Oh, well played! I was easily two moves away, never really likely to catch you.

Gosh darn, there I had my winning strategy laid out and everything and then you come along.

I only had the "non-revised" edition, that particular snippit of information thus escaped me...

 

Well played fair dame.

Well done @Lindsay I don't think anyone saw that coming!

 

Perhaps another game later?  We could have a go at the Red Phone Box edition if anyone has the commemorative random number spinner.

Drats! Well played indeed.

 

I was just getting into position for a Reverse Tranboski Rush Maneuver which would have certainly nabbed the prize.

 

Ah well - perhaps next game.

It's not as though you really need a copy. Just pick it up as we go along.

Yeah, I didn't know a thing about it but most of the rules are pretty obvious anyway.
