1989 Swedish Rules, obviously. None of that 1978 Finnish bullshit.
Did not go well.
I can never remember, under the Swedish rules are DLR stations wild?
but i've heard other things rumbling about that.
but only if play is moving anti-clockwise and no-one has invoked Bagman's Charter. Basically like Restricted Service lines in the simplified standard version.
You'll have to remind me what the '89 edition changed. Were escalators still looped? And could you still do that thing with primary-coloured lines and time-shifting?
And on weekends Bank is wild due to horses on the track. Otherwise the structure of '86 is largely in place.
Good place start, given the rules you've invoke.
TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD.
Plus, I just remembered the Crossrail amendments.
If not, I'll stick with Bermondsey anyway. It's not a bad move in itself.
I'm going to engage in a little cheeky play and segue across to Mudchute.
the audience actually walked out. incredible scenes.
I'm going to use the Chesney Convention and head to Putney Bridge.
but because it's a Tuesday i can play a trump and double-cross to Barkingside
I know what you're doing with that move, anyway. Don't think you've fooled me. But I'm going to walk into it anyway and say... Cockfosters!
I still hold my Joker from being the fourth person to play though, so I might be able to dig myself out of it.
That's what's going on.
you're the one opening diagonals and leading to all sort of primary-line chaos
let's see how it plays. i've heard the tucker move can sometimes bind us into a serpentine route. i once saw a tricky move in 2001 that actually involved a British Rail loop.
I want -dan- to win. Hes the best
or alternatively Go Johnny Go Go Go Go
using the Tucker first-parser amendment.
I'm forced to play EUSTON SQUARE now. I did not want to do that.
in 1989 Swedish rules renamed stations are a free pass, so i'm taking this back and playing South Wimbledon
My Joker overrules your free pass, as per the 1994 World Tournament match between Laxman and Hovel. Although on thinking about it, Hovel did go on to lose that match, so maybe I'm being unwise...
I'm gonna do seven sisters. But first I'll concentrate on the game in hand (wahey!) and go Finchley Road & Frognal. Which, in case you missed it, rolls us into a Philidor lightning round where airports and terminals count double and all zone 4 stations south of the river are subject to positional counterplay. Yeah.
Canada Water *leans back on chair looking smug*
*sees Thirty-Thousand's move*
*checks the board for confirmation*
*suddenly looks a lot less smug*
Didn't see that coming.
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
I've got tears in my eyes.
Time for a curry to celebrate?
Don't care what the rest of you have because I'll be eating that.
Complicated game that one.
defensive move maybe, but leaving the game open to the Hungarian circle is just unnecessary
He didn't even need to do it to get to Barbican, because of the lightning round we were in.
It was 7 years ago mate, and it's a fair (if very aggressive) move, let it go.
We all know that's not the first time you've used the words "manchild", "lust", and "aggressive" in the same internet post. That's all I'm saying.
And I'll do it again.
well played that man
Don't bother with South Kenton, Hiram's Bicycle is on the horizontal (right to left, naturally.)
Don't believe a word of what it says.
That's the link somebody always posts when they've no idea how to execute a perfect 125-trump-pass when dropping either Wapping or High Barnet. It's just embarrassing.
