It's been ages since we've have a really good game of Mornington Crescent on Mudcat, so I'm starting one here. If you don't know how to play don't butt in and ruin the flow but try to follow the game and when confident enough, play a turn.

Just for a change, we'll play Ambo's 1893 rules (third revision) with Salp's 1932 appended section to avoid the converging laterals issue. Also, remember that oblique approaches are not allowed above Ruislip Gardens but then if you don't remember that, it's questionable you should be playing anyway (ridiculous rule).

So I'm starting:

With the opening of the London Overground orbital recently, we have the introduction of the second Mackerel station - as this is new ground, this could lead to an unexpected effect on a similar scale to the Dollis Hill Loop - so with the risk of a ping-pong effect:

David, how did you avoid the forced mackerel zig zag and not have to play St John's Wood? It was not so much a sneaky move but a mischievous one.

The obvious reply to that would be "Neasden" but since that would ensure an imediate win for myself and thus cut short what promises to be an exciting game full of strategy and bluff, I will offer:-

NORTHWICK PARK, and offer the doubling option to all players.

wolfie,(may I call you that ?) you may find it difficult, S,J specified Ambo's 1893 Rules, unfortunately these have been out of print for many years, unless you use the Penguin Books reprint of 1953, which is extremely unreliable particularly with regard to the transference of oblique to diagonal moves.

Rumour has it that when the Westfield Shopping Centre was built, Shepherds Bush (Metropolitan Line) was renamed Shepherds Bush Market to prevent a potential irresolvable trifurcation.

But, in memory of the move that was played for the last time in the historic November 1947 final, made possible because of Westfield

WOOD LANE

I wonder if this will result in an even more exciting game.

Surely, with Salp's 1932 appended section, dupication of stations is not allowed.

Disqualified, I think.
