A but which version? I find the 1965 version where sideways moves count double, and if you bifurcate, you miss a turn, the most fun. You can pass anything during the course of this variation, except wind.
Hope that explains it a bit.

Dont try to explain to Americans why Mornington Crescent is funny. It isnt funny. So highly developed is the English sense of irony that the fact that it isnt funny is reckoned to make it funny.

I once lived on Mornington Crescent, while studying at the University of London. It was a not very nice bedsit, second floor (turks above), but it was very close to the University. The dreary bottom end of Camden Town, with dreadful public housing clogging up the streets. A long walk past Euston Station, which, as I recall, was for a substantial part of the time, a serious target for the IRA. I made it a rule never to use the Mornington Crescent tube station (which was bypassed faily often anyway), so I bar myself voluntarily from this game.

A note to people who are totally bemused by this:

Mornington Crescent is actually quite funny when played by talented comics.

It is, however, somewhat dull (as you've probably noticed) when someone like Edain decides to take it up as a (doubtlessly shortlived) new hobby

A certain comic understanding is needed to play it well. That is almost totally lacking in tis thread.
