Playing the 1998 Utah variation with 2nd level Knuth and overground extensions - Oyster play is valid but not the more recent prepay penalty clause.

I'll open with: Clapham Junction.

I'll double shunt to Kings Lynn, using the recently added 'Yoshimitsu Zen Party Edition' Expansion (fourth edition ruleset).

Round the corner, over the hill and down the alley to Ealing Broadway. Get in!

A sly move Mr Spanners sir, I capitulate with a double return wammy and land firmly on Highbury and Islington.

Non-contiguous zonal loop to Plaistow.





Unless I'm still in Nid, but I think I eventually got free.

Blast you general. I shall retaliate and place you in Knuth with a retro-splice jubilee slide to St. John's Wood. (Which is - incidentally - the only London Underground station to not contain any letters of the word Mackerel)

Isn't that a double-tap? Thus releasing all players from nid?

That would suggest we are using the marquis variation of the Trumpington rules and I don't believe we are!

Good point. Apologies for ignorance.

Although it does of course put a bar on shunting via the southbound Bakerloo for a full reverse-circulation, so with that in mind - Gospel Oak.

You swine!

It hardly seems worth it as you have three of the four kelp stations from that move but I suppose there is very little I can do other than to invert a maidens flourish to barking.

Thanks to the delays on the circle line I think I'll go very slowly to Farringdon. The long way around... Or would that count as an inverted shuffle?

Nah it's only an inverted shuffle if it's a Tuesday or someone has played a Moonwalk card. I'm going to play the Lionel Flank Haircut manoevre over to West Ruislip

I'd like to interject at this point to play the Sutherland Hendon Inversion, under the North Circular and shrimp-pickings into High Barnet.

Booya!

Blackfriars, thus rendering all bus links out-of-bounds.

Morningtoooooooh, no, wait, I can't - Gonzo's straddling the line and one of his kelps is hindering passage.

Anyways, didn't take my hand off so it's still my turn - Chancery Lane, if you'll forgive the impertinence.

Am I right in thinking that after Allen Key's last move, and since we're not playing the Marquis variation of the Trumpington rules, then I could negate Gonzo's kelp stations with Preston Road? I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's possible because the bus links are out-of-bounds?

Well you could but only if you want me to instantiate a periscope proboscis to enable Preston Road to be connected to the knee bone which is connected to the thigh bone which is connected to MARBLE ARCH!
