Hampstead I presume?
At which point you lay yourself wide open for the classic blocking manouevre:

Euston

(try & get back to Mornington Crescent from that one! HA!)

Well that's just backwards! I'm rolling a nine on that one and moving to Marylebone.

Hokey Dokey.

Really elegant reversal there Monster, and to be sure Marylebone does challenge the 1926 ruling on High Church traversal, at least with four or more players. Interesting precedent in (I believe) 1953 due to its being Coronation year of course. Thought provoking. Anyway I digress. OVAL

Hardly cricket CZ! And I'm sure the 1926 ruling was amended by the d"Oyly Carte variant of 1936 covering odd-numbered players on weekdays. Add to this the Festival of Britain appendix (Skylon mark 3 revision) and I am left with no choice other than to play ST. JAMES'S PARK. Not very good-spirited, I admit, but my hands are tied, as I am sure you will appreciate.

Almost certainly a feint by CF to bring on a cascade (Parks and Gardens in this case) as referred to in the Wheatstone Memorial Game currently ongoing elsewhere in the ether ... There is , of course, the possibility of a Hagiographic Strategem as perpetrated in the Vatican City Mornington Crescent Tournament of 1933 ... hm... which to choose ... better be quick before someone blocks me ...

St Pancras!

Zounds B-Limey, you'll have to get up a little earlier if you think you're going to slide that one past us. Pretty reminiscent of the famous Ruskin-Redgrave manouvre of 1932 if I'm not mistaken. Before our time admittedly but re-enacted by Garden v. Rice at Chichester during the Summer festival of 1976, the year of the great drought and silver jubilee. I am surprised at you but nevertheless impressed!

In the spirit of Brooke-Taylor, Kew Gardens.

Simply because I'm a new player, I'm not afraid of the controversy:

Tonchi I think perhaps you meant Tower Hill where the District and Circle skim west just before the old Tower itself, unless yours was a devious ploy to liberate the stone=scone under cover of playing the game...? Deeply sneaky.

Out at Terminal Four Ut, pretty wild and wily, we must watch you very closely.

My work today took me into the lives and loves of Bedlam so partly in their honour I give you LAMBETH NORTH

If you stop at Tower Hill first, the ravens will see you coming and block the scones nicking. Tower of London manoever was taught to me by a Chilean refugee from the Pinochet regime in 1974, and I feel it only fair to mention it only works outward bound. Carry on.
