    Widdershins, huh. you mean anti-clockwise don'tcha

    Good thing we're on the Circle line, though I'm betting that's why you did that, so here's something fun for the next player giving plenty of options to get in a tangle.

    And since I have already played Queensway, opening the classic royal gambit, I can go from stations referencing Queens to Kings as long as the move follows the strict line of succession of the British throne. Due to the centinary rules in effect on the classic regal gambit, you can probably all guess my following move, unless anyone can come up with a block.

    Kings Cross

    Since no one else seems to want to take the challenge up, I shall use the exact same gambit to divert yours, and place myself in the winning position. As Southwark has royal connections through Edward III, I shall make my move to:

    Tower Hill

    Yeah, looks like this game is heading towards a conclusion, lets move it on a little.

    St Pancras

    Well, we can either go the long route or the short route:

    Camden Town

    AHA! St Pancras is of course linked to King's Cross, and if Kings Cross is still in play, as it is due to the earlier invocation of the Royal Gambit, then the direct route a gauche can be invoked between business hours of 9 and 5:30, so long as the regal triad has been completed allowing for horse guard rules which apply due to the earlier invocation of Traitor's Gate by the move to Tower Hill via the 1947 post-war amendment.

    So you won, right? Was that a good game? Please can someone tell me the rules. The book makes no sense!

    Yeah she won this round. I could comment on the ease with which she was allowed to reach the goal but that would be ungentlemanly.

    Besides I'm sure it was merely a starter to get everyone in the mood and the next round will be more keenly fought.

    Beaten to it, I see. My congratulations on a well fought game, Jessica, and I shall brush up on my Royal Gambit for our next round. I believe a rematch is in order.

    Ditto. Is there such a thing as a beginner's version?

    I could do with a new Game. Something to do with keep calm and carry on...

    A game started and no-one keeping calm and carrying on - how very un-British.

    Will need the patience of a saint to continue.

    St Pancras

    Patience? - ah that reminds me of the commuter rule of '96 in the East Wapping tournament.

    So off to Bank - and the next person misses their turn if it is a weekday.

    That's...that's unforgivable especially at such an early stage in this game.

    Should a new game really be played in the same thread? Doesn't the pub ruling of 1934 indicate that a secondary thread be used under the widdershins table requirement? :whistle:

    As long as the start and end are clearly defined - Britannia Rules 1993 online edition.

    Anyway, apologies to Angel, maybe I can make up for it sometime, but seeing as we are stuck east side of London, I'm throwing in a grey token, calling laterals and taking us to

  17. jessica

    jessica Citizen of Logres

    No, no, no.

    Ealing Broadway

    Ealing Broadway? What kind of move is...oh, I get it, no, that's fine.

    I'll just use the Stannis Counter c. 1983 and move to

  19. Angel

    Angel Munificent Critic

    Oh dear - this game has been in abeyance for far too long.

    I'll throw in a mandatory restart token, and a call for the nearest location.

    Lambeth North

    Ok - a challenge then. Let's keep it simple for the moment:

    Clapham North
