I have a great deal of experience with the Brown Line Detour, and I assure you that's not it.

I bow to your greater knowledge, but stand by Grange Hill as the next stop.

I know myself. I'm going to get my feelings hurt if I continue to play, so I think I'm going to withdraw. If anyone needs to consult the Finsbury rules for any reason, just let me know.

Play fair!

I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. But I do want to play Barking. I feel strongly about it. Barking Barking Barking!

Can we please move out of East London as I see them as stations rather than moves... There's a wonderful Italian ice cream shop in Barking...

Anyway.

As Barking is wild - being a mainline station - I move Barking to West Ham to Stratford- two to three privilege sacrificing Plaistow (as this is where my ex used to live so I'm glad to be rid of it).

I can't believe the opportunity for this classic move presented itself so readily! Playing as a veteran of many years standing, since before the Jubilee and The Oyster existed, I give you

Camden Town.

Time for an east-west Joker - via the Circle Line jug handle which isolates Earls Court (I have a feeling that might be about to be played - could be wrong though - bit of nail-biter) - so it's High Street Kensington with a compulsory northbound intervention.

I think that closes the Canus Gambit.

You're getting too close to Hampton Court introducing the Ball Sac Binding Manoeuvre (and that can be painfull - as well as being overground)

But I think I have time to slip in a Shepherds Bush while you're not looking...

I'm beginning to see that radio broadcasts that I've heard have been heavily edited.

I'm going to queer your crafty pitch for Shepherds Bush with a little Swiss Cottaging.
