I'm bored so let's have a play of this fine. majestic game.

Right Republic rules (just the same as Senate rules but no left-sided gambits)

I'll start with

'Sloan Square' over to you...........


Guess who's back?

Nice opener, if a little unconventional, I'll plump for,

Oxford Circus.

Im pretty sure this is allowed under the most recent revised rules:

Holland Park

(Good luck to the next player getting out of that one easily!)

I almost played Tottenham Court Road then, forgetting the Hammersmith jink!

Instead, I'll use my first gambit, and go for Chancery Lane, which was my only real option.

Well really, if you're not going to take the game seriously.

I see where you are going with North Acton, and I'm not falling for that one. So I shall choose, hmmm,

Great Portland Street, or is that a little too obvious.

but all moves were void once i won, so forget it
Great portman st was void because i already completed - why can't you read?

How can you complete without a Terminal Wildcard?

Good move Banquo, but perhaps a touch aggresive.

I think it's time we threw Embankment into the equation.

Mind the gap!

incorrect. i played Mornington Crescent because of the small loophole in the rules that you can MC early following two successive plays from the same person!

Yes, but the two successive moves that you played Mornington Crescent on, were illegal. I refer you to the 1971 publication,Rules and Origons of Mornington Crescent by 'NF Stovold.


Tad early for the Embankment Flashy, I can tell youre a bit of a risk taker playing that, so you leave me no choice but to play,


Swiss Cottage.

you can't play Swiss Cottage after any non-existent - or no longer functioning station

so your move is void...thought you knew the rules?

Swiss Cottage. Jesus what a good move! The old 76 right-sided manoeuvre still works then. In that case I'll have to plump for 'White City'......

Jeepers, you chaps can play!

But I've no little experience myself - and at this level when someone plays White City, rather than use the first of my en passants, I'll plump for Temple and hang the consequences.
