7th Annual Charles Wheatstone Memorial Mornington Crescent Game


Recommended Posts

Heh! Heh!

Watch out you lot.

I've had a tax rebate, so now I can afford a taxi to take me directly to M.C. bypassing all the prevoius play.

That was 4 days ago and I'm still in the taxi, but I'm sure I'm almost there.

Roadworks have redirected your taxi to Holloway Road in the badlands of North London.

And in a Transverse Side Flanker and Hub encompassing movement , having removed ourselves back to the Tube system (allowed I believe under the subset of the rules instituted in 1973, given that there is some dubious legality in moves made by unconventional transport ?) we move to Waterloo in order to circumvent the potential dire consequences of that last move :blink:

 

Wonder if Mr Trimming is about to play one of his devastating blinders now?

Hard to believe that the opening could have been left for a straight pass to Wimbledon Park. Humph must be spinning in his grave to see such play.

Aha - fallen into the trap!

Humph would be chortling to himself, knowing that the way was left open for

Mornington Crescent

I'm sure that Samantha will agree that the simultaneous application of Ancient and Modern and Admiralty rules leaves the way open for the clinching move.

Good grief! You had me scrabbling through my manuals there! I don't think the move is as obvious as you suggest - in fact I think you are being overly modest, that was as nice a triple-twisted swan turner as I've seen in a month of Fridays!

 

Mr Corner, you are this year's winner. Well done.

Sportsmanship is the very essence of Mornington Crescent.

It's very like croquet in that I've often thought.

Thank you.

This year's game was particularly tough, and I'm looking forward to next year's event.

Meanwhile, it's back to "Morningside Crescent", although the tram works in Princes Street make an additional complication.

 

PS Gerry - has your taxi arrived yet?

Better make sure all your connections are sound.

And that your means of transport is not over-rated
