Well, yes newt_e, I was close enough to block, but not close enough to reach it! Just one more blue token and I'd have been able to bring this game to a very abrupt (and indeed surprising) end!

I'm sure you've all spotted my tactics now, it probably won't surprise anyone to learn I'm going to call South Kensington.

I thought you might have gone with the less obvious Knightsbridge until I realised I got the count of tokens wrong (doh).

I shall use the Bertrand Engima and call Russell Square.

Well then, I see no option other than to sally forth with Theakston's Convolving Aspergence...

Regent's Park.

Because you think I'm applying Wormhold's Hesitation, I presume? No, it's a Laski's Second Sinistration, I use it quite a lot as a standard pattern. And you're right, there aren't enough tokens for a Wormhold, thanks to Whizzwang and Svartmetal taking most of Central off me earlier...

Hmm; Regent's Park; can't play a Laski's Second at Regent's Park, that's a no-brainer, so the best move would I think be an Armstrong Transubstantive Shuffle; which brings me to Moorgate.

I will regain the Central Line hahaha!

Orc, you forget that after Regent's Park and and Moorgate have been played consecutively under the Shuffle, the Central Line shall be considered 'In Spoon' and unable to be played for the rest of the round. I understand that you might have forgotten this, as it only appeared in an obscure Tubeman's Companion article in 46, but it DOES appear in the compendium, under Appendix 9, c4...

sorry pal...

I don't have time to consider a move, so you're still on Moorgate guys.

No Central line for you Red Orc - I'll use Wormhold's Magnifcent Ministration to play Epping, which I hope prevents you taking the Central line.

(Right... It was very hard to not just come in here and say "whut?" as I could not get my head around what you were talking about, not even in the slightest. I think I understand it enough to play but you carry on referring to these... What should I call them, manoeuvres?

"I'm applying Wormhold's Hesitation" "Laski's Second Sinistration" Is there any where where I could find a translation for these?

I'm sorry if I've dumbed down the whole room now... I'll sit in the corner with my D hat on)

We are not making it up, this is a very structured game and if you wish to find out the rules for it you must either google it or personal message someone who will give you a run down of the rules.

Epping, eh? Well then you force me to play Church Street... damn you.

Don't give me rep, just poke My Bum ... and then give me rep.

Ever one to try and throw as many people off at once as possible while paying little heed to the hate it often gets me, I'm going to call a Johannsen Reversal, very similar to a 'certain' 1976 semi-finalist and play Piccadilly Circus.
