It veers dangerously close to polyesmerism, but I believe I will employ Fürtwangler's Greater Traverse and riposte with Latimer Road.

Well, I was trying to work out if that was even possible, let alone legal; Svartmetal, you're not using the 1962 Compendium are you? I know Tor said he'd prefer the Almanac, but that doesm't mean you can use it. Dangerously close to polyesmerism indeed, because of course the Hammersmith and City Line is debarred. And there's no way I can see of making that move without the Hammersmith and City.

I suggest as a gentlemen's compromise (apologes to any ladies playing, just a figure of speech), that we take Svartmetal's last move as being Shepherd's Bush, and I'll pay him my renders from Holland Park, which are still in force. As, I think, I'm the only one who loses out in any significant way with this compromise, I trust it's acceptable? Of course, it actually puts Svartmetal in a slightly better position, and with 4 more tokens, but I think I'll live!

BTW, Svartmetal, bold move and I do love a classic Traverse (my favourite is the Earl's Court Gambit, but Furtwangler's series are also stunning moves). Shame you hadn't noticed the time discrepancy is all.

Well, I really didn't want to do this, as some may consider it cheap. But under 1962, I'm pretty sure it's completely legal. At least, it was when it was used in the past under similar circumstances.

It'd have to be a classic reverse Baron's Court Gambit and I'll take Camden Town, thank you very much!

This feels like a setup, but... Mornington Crescent?

EDIT: shit, i knew it was too good to be true, i forgot about Skipton Mallet's Skipton Mallet rule in the 62 Compendium, i'm too depressed to offer an alternative. Go back to Camden Town...

...which allows me to spend those four tokens on a Submersive Gambit and bid:

Mansion House

(obviously I'll be observing the definitive '62 ruling on discursive topography)

let's see.

under the precedent set down in 2001 by Simpson Matthews with regards to a reverse shunt I'll call

Heathrow... terminal 4

That should quite nicely enable the verimous laxation curve until we see a sideways buffer.

If I didn't know better, I'd suspect you were trying to make a run for it, or even take the game to international grounds.
To prevent this and get the game back on track, as it were, I'll have to go against my initial plan and copy the late and great General Pilkinton and call West Kensington.

Well, given the field state established by the Baron's Court Gambit and the Pilkingtons, I believe the sideways buffer now permits me to say:

MORNINGTON CRESCENT!
