  • Moorcock Crescent: "The Vanishing Tower"

    Anyone up for a round of "Moorcock Crescent"? I think "The Vanishing Tower" for pretty obvious reasons will make a useful substitute for Mornington Crescent.

    The new Stovald rules will apply, and any reincarnation can be played as an intermittent, and please avoid use of Una Persson either as a transitional play or an opponent in any kind of drinking game... or for any other reason you can think of, frankly (or Frank-ly)....

      With my slightly off-key crystals, the best I can do is Waterloo Circus.

        Curiously, and in part because I can't think of any other time that I can play this as a quartering maneuver...

        Mornington Crescent

        Which would leave me in strile if it wasn't for Stovald's fourth rule of diagonals.

          It's very early in the game to be quite so daring but, sod it!

            Your eager play for Tanelorn is easily shunted, Porcus, so I deflect your move to The Sighing Desert.

              I know we are using Stovolds, but if we are swapping Vanishing Tower for MC, are stations being substituted directly or in sets? Also, are we using en passe or simplified offside rules?

              Either way, oppening with

              but for none of the obvious reasons

                    Clearly sticking to London plays will bring us within the realms of Biloxi default, so Tower of London via Hotchkiss' simple-inverse.

                      Brilliantly played, Uncle Des...but I believe the 1821 Tome "Lady Silverskin's Rules of Mornington Crescent," (the Third Edition with the pornographic covers) states, in part, that by use of the Covington Conundrum, I may shunt Majestically to...wait for it!...the third barstool in the Green Unicorn Pub, which may or may not exist on alternate Thursdays on Long Acre in Covent Garden. Oh, and if you do see Eric of Marylebone's Aunt Valerie, say "hi" for me.

                        Aha! I was awaiting the chance to slipstream someone out of these pesky London paradox loops, and this lets me 'up-shunt' to the strategic high ground of (Recreated) Old New Old Old New New Old New Old New New New Old New New Versailles (I hope I won't regret playing the Morphail Effect card once we get to the endgame).

                            That puts more than one of us in the loop....
