Ships and submarines don't count.

 

Yes, I guess you're right. Good point. Although with current advances in artificial intelligence perhaps one day they'll count as well as we do.

 

Get it ?

Er, yes? :)

About time that someone played the Ermine transverse deception ...

Barons Court

 

Surely that move is barred under the Queensbury Rules, ever since Lord Lucan was seen exiting from the station. I choose Regents Park.

Aargh ... now we've got a problem ... does the Sceptre and Orb subsection get overruled by the King George variation?

Mm - I thought I could apply rule 23.6.7(a) from Trumpington's Variation. :(

You have to flip a coin to decide. I call Tails.

Hmmm. I flipped three coins. Still not sure how to interpret the result - what do you reckon?

Royal Albert prompted me to check the oracle which led me to realise I could play

Now that I'm no longer in nidd, and applying a parallel jump on the diagonal:

 

Prince Regent

 

(double points me thinks B) )

Woody: my Napometer indicates that you are now free to move, though you should avoid Humphing for three progressions.

I think I can extrapolate the Docklands diagonal and end up in

Caledonian Road

 

Sorry I missed the start of the game - I've been busy interpreting the Miss Jean Brodie variation of Morningside Crescent, Edinburgh's own game.
