It struck me that we could all do with something to take our minds off toughing MPs, whelk-eyed fascists and swine flu and we haven't had a game of Mornington Crescent for a while.

As ISIHAC is back on tonight, let's have a bash!

We'll play using Benn's Revised and Amended Rules (Fourteeth Edition), don't double-back on the diagonals and if we could avoid whiffling and nadgering on this first game it'll make it easier for all.

I'll start:

Bethnal Green

(I know what you're thinking: A move reminiscent of Belvoir's Standard Opening, but trust me, it's not . . .)

I should have have challenged Mitch. I think the 14th edition falls after 1994 when Aldwych was closed permanently due to the following reasons.

Terminus of Piccadilly line branch line from Holborn. Closed due to low passenger numbers and cost of replacing lifts

Liz - I think I have to refute that challenge.

If I had approached using Wellard's Uncanted Oblique (Wellard vs O'Flynn et al, 1943) then I think your challenge would be upheld, but as I made my approach on the converse I assume it would be valid.

Or am I wrong?

I think thay Grenouille's play of Place de la Concorde was made under the misunderstanding that we were playing the French Game also known as Mornington Croissant.

For some reason this game has turned up an inordinately large number of stations remeniscent of my days at University College (from 1969). Lived near Green Lanes, travelled daily to Euston, went to Goodge Street for Dingles Folk Club, moved to Kentish Town and oft went to Camden Town for CSH. Danced in Paternoster Square at St Pauls, went out with someone who lived near Holborn and then got a job in Cockfosters. In all that time I don't think I once used Mornington Crescent and certainly didn't venture south of the river in civilised hours.
