Mornington Crescent

Skip to the bottom

  • @hornesgiftshop  Jan 29

    I've had a brief look and I can't find a game going.

    In deference to the recently late Nicholas Parsons, I think we can agree to play Commonwealth Rules (Lancaster Gate conference, 1957) which prevent hesitation and repetition. Can't do much about deviation, I'm afraid. As a matter of courtesy I would like to include the Newcastle Metro and Glasgow subway, but only in linear and circular moves respectively. Anyone using HS2 will be suspended and fined £106bn.

    I'll start with Finchley Rd and Frognal.

  • @wobbiewobbit  Jan 29

    i suppose i am too early for an off-peak ticket which cuts out a lot of my options... so i will be generous here and give the next player a big chance with King's Cross St Pancras. Never let it be said that i am tight!

  • @mdavisto  Jan 29

    @wobbiewobbit you're too kind. I think I may just ... well, at the risk of appearing crass, I'm afraid I must just follow with:

    Tottenham Hale.

    I do apologise.

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    Apology accepted. But try not to let that happen again.

    Ah dear old Nicholas Parsons. A sad loss but he had a good innings. And while we're on the subject of all things cricket....

  • @mdavisto  Jan 29

    As deviation is not specifically ruled out,

  • @zecoop  Jan 29

    I've got a "re-entry" ticket, and was going to jump off, but I just realized it's the red one and that won't work...

    This ought to mess things about

  • @rainchaser  Jan 29

    What is this about, again?I don't understand! Lol

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 29

    @rainchaser I'm surprised you haven't already worked how to play!

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 29

    Speaking of broken links Great Missenden.

  • @hornesgiftshop  Jan 29

    @rainchaser If I can walk you through it... Because of @pipewrench67 's ill-advised shunt into Gt.Missenden, any player can bid for a reverse at this stage. Obviously that wouldn't be true later in the game. I'll play for you and bid Heathrow Terminal 5.

  • @headfirstonly  Jan 29

    Oooh, bang up to date! I know it's early to do so, but I'm going to employ the Grandmother Gambit and flaunt my ancestry: Preston Road.

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    Preston Road? That's a bit agricultural.

    Now we are playing Commonwealth Rules so although this wouldn't normally get past the advisory committee, there isn't anyone at Osterley at the moment so I'll by-pass Chalk Farm and sidle into...

    Theydon Bois

  • @wobbiewobbit  Jan 29

    at the risk of being too obvious, but this is in honour of nicholas parsons right? so no hesitation taking the clearest route to Wood Green

  • @canetoad Jan 30

    Would the panel consider international expansion? I thought Commonwealth Rules included public transport systems in other parts of the Empire. If this is the case, I would like to parry with Diamond Garden.
    If this is not allowed, I'd like to offer Northampton Town Centre Underpass.

  • @rickatfulcrum Jan 30

    ^ I think that Diamond Green is allowed provided you play the Bank Error In Your Favour card, if I'm remembering Commonwealth Rules correctly.

    There's a fair amount of recklessness I'm seeing so far with the rest of you lot, so I'm going to dig in at South Ruislip.

  • @canetoad Jan 30

    Right. That's fair enough. Thank you for being so understanding of those not yet all that familiar with this game.
    I believe your South Ruislip allows me to use the 3rd Quarter loophole so I am going all in with Pinner.

  • @quillwraith  Jan 30

    Ah, yes. I've been looking forward to this. Got my oyster card filled up and all that. I enter with High Barnet. Not reverse-bidding this stage - I never like to open with a reverse bid.

  • @stephenwordsmith Jan 30

    You all seem to have forgotten that there's a moratorium in place on the use of Commonwealth Rules until New Zealand gets round to building its first rapid transit station. This moratorium has been in place for some decades now.

    High Barnet is playing it a little safe, I think. Let's make some noise with Tooting Broadway.

  • @hornesgiftshop  Jan 30

    I must say @stephenwordsmith is showing wilful ignorance here. The New Zealand sanction was never intended as a full scale moratorium and he knows it. I've half a mind to play Flinders Street in protest. Dammit I will. Flinders Street.

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    There's a lot of talk about moratoria and not much action.
    Right, let's put the cat amongst the partridges with Canada Water

    PS - I propose a little round of Uxbridge English Dictionary on the side. I'll start...

    ENVELOPE - to be jealous of the way someone walks

  • @canetoad Jan 30

    Ooooh....
    Antelope: Someone who is vehemently against walking altogether.

  • @sapient  Jan 30

    @hornesgiftshop - Thanks for clarifying exactly which of the 1957 conferences is at play here. I was a bit worried that it might have been the Hounslow West Conference of later that same year that permitted the inclusion of public transportation systems that hadn't yet been built, but only for counter-clockwise or transverse moves.
    Phew.
    And so: West Jesmond.

  • @quillwraith  Jan 30

    Listen, I know the '57 Hounslow West Conference rules get a bad reputation, and yes, the fractional inclusion of potential stations that haven't been planned yet can lead to absolute mayhem - but I think we should give it a try later.
    Everybody said the St. Victor ruling would lead to mayhem too, after all, and yet once the community got the hang of it, it turned out to be quite interesting, and most of it then got incorporated into the New Revised 3rd Edition.

    But anyway, back to the current game. I'll head over to Chancery Lane, and as I'm on the Central line in a 7+ player game, will opt to start a rolling stock replacement. (Anyone else on the Central line can of course join me in the rolling stock replacement, but given the current state of the game, I don't expect many takers.)

  • @quillwraith  Jan 30

    As for the round of Uxbridge, I hope you'll forgive if my play isn't the most artful- my skills are very rusty.

  • @rainchaser  Jan 30

    Ok so I'm at the Heathrow Terminal 5, now I'm heading towards to Northern line. I'll report back on my findings from there...

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    Hang on. @hornesgiftshop is already at Heathrow Terminal 5 and now @rainchaser is there too?
    I think we have a major infringement in progress so I propose a temporary implementation of the The Hobbs' Emergency Plan. So until this is all sorts itself out I'll go for a lie down at Ruislip Gardens

  • @sapient  Jan 30

    @dragondreams You forgot to collect your copper tokens!
    Sigh.
    You know that'd normally put you In Nidd, but the Gamberly Edit (he was such a bore at the Lancaster Gate gathering, but he was always right!) gets you out automatically on the basis of "seeing as you are already a Yorkshire Man." You lucky sod.
    Hmm. I guess Southwark sets us up for an exciting end to the opening gambits. Aye. Let's do it.
    Southwark

  • @dragondreams  Jan 30

    @sapient - strategic move, based on the fact my bath taps are silver. I didn't want to risk electrolysis interfering with my heart's sinus rhythm. 😉
    I remember Gamberly once talking a glass eye to sleep at a conference back in Upper Trendleby Down some years ago. He did let slip that "his" edit was actually plagiarised from a footnote he came across while researching for his other famous work, "The Cheese Mechanic's Field Guide".
    And @headfirstonly has queered my pitch with his cunning gambit!
    So, that only leaves me with...

    Whetstone!

  • @stephenwordsmith Jan 30

    As paper beats rock, I counter Whetstone with Wood Lane (which, as a non-Londoner, strikes me as the place to go for all supplies that were once trees).

    CIRCUMSPECT - another term for Spotted Dick

  • @alyxanderjames  Jan 30

    Well, now. I'm a bit rusty, but as it appears that we're integrating at least some of Zerno's Guide (and why not, the old man was practically clairvoyant at the height of his gaming days, though admittedly by the time the Guide came out there were rumors he'd gone off the deep end, but I digress)...

    Blackfriars it is!

  • @hornesgiftshop  Jan 30

    There's a lump in my throat at the mention of Zerno. Opposed the introduction of Commonwealth Rules, yet played them like gentleman. A minute's silence if you will. HESITATION!!! In that case, where else but Parsons Green?

  • @rickatfulcrum Jan 31

    Parsons Green, oo er cheeky move that.

    Monument.

  • @rainchaser  Jan 31

    B-Borough Station! Shiver me timbers!! I wanted to go to Morden! How did I end up all the way there?! I didn't take the wrong right did I? Oh Blasted me! I guess in the meantime I will go to The Trinity to have some Kilkenny nothing like an Irish beer to wash yer troubles away!!

  • @alyxanderjames  Jan 31

    You cad. Backed us into a bit of a corner, haven’t you? Was going to save this for later in the game, but very well:

    Earl’s Court.

  • @dragondreams  Jan 31

    Earl's Court?! On the last Friday in January?! Surely, sirrah, you play fast and loose with the Waddington Rumbusculation Principle. Unless you have a flying machine tucked away in a covert hangar somewhere, that move is open to misinterpretation as an act of cannibalism!
    You leave me no option but to retreat to the meat-free zone of...

    Chalk Farm.

  • @rickatfulcrum Jan 31

    Arsenal, ironically enough to staunch the bleeding. That Chalk Farm move kind of hit close to home, if you know what I mean.

  • @hornesgiftshop  Jan 31

    This is difficult because when Commonwealth Rules were regularly in use, anyone going to Arsenal was offside, but for many years this has not been the case. So I'm going to re-orient the game and say Leyton.

  • @tuneslayer2018  Jan 31

    Funny you should mention Zemo. I actually met him once. At least he said he was Zemo; under the wig and glasses it was a bit hard to tell. His advice to me was "Always play Canary Wharf when you have a chance to do so," which was a bit odd because I met him in 1984 and Canary Wharf wouldn't open for another 15 years.

    Well, what the heck, Canary Wharf and let the copper tokens fall where they may.

  • @jeyemusik Feb 1

    Well, for all the bravado that has been on display thus far, I must confess to feeling that there has been a dearth of boldness in moves made. Lest I am labelled a hypocrite of the highest order, I'll spring a three-quarter McCormack Manouevre to land at St Enochs with only the most perfunctory of observations of the circular mandate from the game's opening gambit.

  • @berni1954  Feb 1

    In the spirit of Parsons vs Fry in the Noughties. I would like to try and snooker the next player by including the once forbidden terminal rule and say end of the line: Braintree.

  • @wr3n  Feb 2

    Sorry y'all I'm going to call a 7 part 4 and start off at Paddington. Honour is all well and good in theory, but at this time of year I need all the edge I can get.

  • @sapient  Feb 2

    All a bit safe the last few rounds, eh?
    Which means it's high time to play Thomson's Inverter (®D.R. Thomson, 1978, not to be confused with D.C. Thomson, who was outed by Viz in the late 90s as a Mean Scots Git).
    So, here we all go, back to Newbury Park again!

  • @alyxanderjames  Feb 2

    I see your Thomson’s Inverter and raise you Farrington’s Corkscrew, and off to Angel we go!

  • @calumcarlyle Feb 2

    Who’s winning so far?

  • @wr3n  Feb 4

    Inverter, eh? For shame! and FarScrew? Feels like i'm back in the 90's again.
    WELL! I supposed I ought to keep my wits about me- Farringdon for me and, assuming construction is reasonable for once, I should be off at a decent pace...
    To respond to @calumcarlyle, have a look at the Millennium edition of the big book (The one by J.S. Charles, not Thyme). Christina Rose wrote a very insightful (if dry) forward that nicely sums up why points--not winning--is what counts in the post-LGC game.

    Nice nice- Good to see the classics holding strong. How are we playing zones this round? I'd LOVE to rail-draft through Stratford International, but it is a rather hot-button play.

  • @hornesgiftshop  Feb 9

    Stratford Int.? Isn't that Overground? In the words of Sam Weller: "Going underground, going overground, going wombling free." Thus Theydon Bois.

  • @alyxanderjames  Feb 9

    In the spirit of “wombling free,” you’ve left me no choice but to hop the barrier at Barking.

  • @quillwraith  Feb 9

    Good lord, gone for just a week and I come back to this chaos? Waddington Rumbusculation and Thomson’s Inverter, in that order, no less. This will be interesting.

    Well, I can hardly complain that so many of you are working off of Zerno's Guide. Good sense, he had.

    Mind you, I've recently managed to come by a copy of 'Southbound on the Northern Line', the memoir of Vivian Larkins, in which she recounts the strategy she used to defeat Zerno in the Fourth Bakeloo Tournament. There may be some insight to be found there...

    ...yes, I do believe this can work. For the moment, I'll double up with @alyxanderjames at Angel.

  • @quillwraith  Feb 12

    How...?

    ...oh, you were at Chatham with a copper token the whole time. And then there was the rolling stock replacement...

    Well played.

    How about the Amended Imperial ruleset for the next round? Mid-paced, and limits the impact of repetition.
    I'll start us off with something that could go a few different directions, strategically: Knightsbridge.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 12

    I thought the Amended Imperial ruleset had been largely discredited on account of it being carved into a wheel of crumbly Cheshire cheese?

    Still, if you insist...

  • @quillwraith  Feb 13

    @dragondreams - I believe the crumbly Cheshire cheese to have been merely a rumour: Coleman claims a Red Leicester was used, and Scarne says that the episode in question never occurred at all.

    Watford Junction.

  • @chrishope Feb 13

    cheesy but i guess within a greater splurge i will fire us back to baker st

  • @candle  Feb 17

    Baker St? That was rather elementary of you @chrishope. I'm still learning the rules, but from what I've read I should probably go out on a limb after a move like that and play Baron's Court.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @quillwraith  Feb 22

    There's only one safe response to Baron's Court in this situation. Well, there's more than one, but only one I care for.

    Golders Green

  • @panch  Feb 22

    Golders Green - you've played the apostrophe +/- card already.

    St Paul's.

  • @quillwraith  Feb 22

    You might think so, but 'Golders' is the official spelling. No, I was holding the apostrophe +/- in reserve. But perhaps now is a good time to bring it out, actually:

    South 'Ealing

    Furthermore, I invoke Danver's rule. Ordinarily, the only the (entirely distinct) Danvers rule would apply, but the apostrophe card lasts a whole turn in the imperial rulesets, though not to be used more than once per paragraph.

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 22

    Nice move, but don't forget that Danver's rule only applies in the clockwise direction. So:

    Osterley.

  • @zecoop  Feb 22

    Danvers rule doesn't apply at ALL... Because I played the Apostrophe +/- card yet again and changed Danver's to Danvers. It's been done before. Look up the 1957 Invitational.

    Hounslow East

  • @quillwraith  Feb 22

    And under Danvers rule sans aopstrophe, South 'Ealing is... at least not an illegal move, but it does leave me in a difficult position.
    I suppose I have to flee to Chorleywood.

  • @candle  Feb 23

    Chorleywood? I feel like I was just there the other day. At any rate, you've really forced my hand (Danvers rule not withstanding!). Argh… I guess I'll have to play Harrow-On-The-Hill (was that my best move? I'm not sure…)

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @calumcarlyle Feb 29

    I'm more interested in the side game of Uxbridge English Dictionary to be honest, here's my play:

    Left my convention logs behind when I moved West, but I think you're right. It might have been the 2006 convention, though? I think he chaired both.

  • @candle  Mar 8

    Yes, 2006 does seem right & he did chair both, according to what I've read. That must be it! Thanks!

    Hmmmm… you've really narrowed my possible moves with St John's Wood. Let me see… it would seem my best play is Stanmore, but I'm afraid that puts me into an even worse position…

  • @zecoop  Mar 20

    Well, I think everyone forgot that "Card C19" that was played recently was COMPLETELY banned from play in any convention. Somehow, though, it was put into play and this is wreaking havoc on my choices. I'm left with no options other than putting on a second revision approved facemask, which not only protects me from poor choices, but keeps me under cover from those who are trying to follow my strategy. I know the facemask has deeper impact on future choices than initially thought, but I've decided that I'm taking my chances with:

    Chancery Lane

  • @candle  Mar 21

    Card C19, I'll have to look that up. Damn. Chancery Lane, eh? Hmmmm.... It seems that Corona Virus has limited things even further with closures of a number of stations, my next move of Bayswater can't be played, thanks to the Post-SARS Viral Rules adopted in 2004. So I guess I'll have to go with…

    Nunhead

  • @candle  Mar 23

    Beginner's luck? Or good strategy? I'm not sure. I just looked up the Telford Overground Cancellation Clause & that pretty much kills my next planned move. You are a master of this game, @jonmeta 😀 So I must then look at another option…

    Northwick Park

    How does a rookie player know about the Telford overground cancellation clause?? I thought only those long term players who were around at the time of the ironbridge gorge intervention were up to speed. Nevertheless,I throw you...

    St Johns Wood

  • @candle  Mar 25

    Wasn't there a famous Crescent player that jumped off the Ironbridge because of that intervention? Basil Whittemore, wasn't that his name? Or maybe it was because his arch rival, Vera Liddiard-Saunders, had invoked the Battersea Power Gambit Rule to block him & win the 2013 Devonshire Invitational (incidently, someone said a few pigs on the wing flew by during the match). Supposedly (according to some shady tabloids), Mr. Whittermore lost out on a lucrative sponsorship deal after this humiliating loss. But I digress… (and yes, I've been reading up on Crescent history to learn some new strategies) Sorry, I should make my move…

    Also, I just finished re-reading The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy & I feel like I need to pour myself another Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster before I step onto the platform at Perivale.

    See You In The Shadows…

    Well, we've all been trudging along the rails since January & it's neigh near May. We all seem to be stumbling a bit more then we were in weeks long past & the tunnels seem to be getting darker (or perhaps that's just a side-effect of the Gargle Blaster…). At any rate, i feel as if our trains are all reaching the end of the line. But ere we end up on the other side of the sunrise that arcs over us all (nudge nudge, wink wink), I think I'll make one last pilgrimage to Bank, though not to withdraw much needed funds…

    See You In The Shadows…
