Alright, chaps, I think it's time for a game of Mornington Crescent. 1753 rules, no back hands. Got it? Good. Obviously, since we are using 1753 rules, but no back hands, we start at West Acton. I'll make the first move:

Over to North Acton, but because of the Regulations of 1821, I get to jump from there to White City.

Your move.

But, according to the Undue Fair Trade Act of 1872, that move is null. Plus, I can now advance and take your spot. In fact, I will. Did you know the Westcoast East Factory has some vacant slots for the retired? Give that a try, you'll have better luck there.

ConfusedCartman
12-12-2008, 01:43 AM
I can't argue, but I can point out a key fact you may have missed. Because of Subsection 2B in the 1753 rule set, I, as the game initiate, can take ownership of the Westcoast East Factory for myself, putting me in the lead.

The advantage would only be mine, as the Canonbury Proposal Law allows me to save some distance, and with that, some time, going past Canonbury, reaching Hackney Central.

Ah, but you forget. The Interstate Construction Act of 1994 has closed off the road to Hackney Central in order for the new Interstate to be built. You'll have to detour around Canterville.

And the newcomer shows his skill! Imagine! Well, you seem to have clearly one-upped him, I don't see what I could do from here...

Aha! You seem to have forgotten a crucial step! If you had read the fine print of the Interstate Construction Act of 1994, you would know that Canterville is exempt from such moves. I take the lead, placing me right smack in Camden Town.

Gentlemen, Gentlemen, please!

SURELY you remember Proposistion 34 of North Canterbury Square?

As such, I reserve the power to send anyone in Camden Town directly to York, under Section 3 Article 24 of Proposistion 34.

Your turn.

I can make up anything, right? >_<

If so, then click the spoiler, if not, carry on xD

You fool!

Only under violation of such nature can you be exempt from ruling such a statement! The West Road Ironside treatment plant has been degraded and have lost all intersection rights thereof. You are all led to the northern suburbs of your destination, placing me on the right track, avoiding all detours up until the third junction.

Before you play Mornington Crescent it is assumed that because it was Thursday yesterday you will know that the short rules only apply and from the 2nd turn in reverse order during December. Please also remember rule 7b: All Egyptian moves are disallowed except crossovers and double takes.

Please avoid all surface lines that back onto Mrs Trellis's home between 7pm and 7am on a Friday.

I avoid all surface lines back to Mrs Trellis's home between 7am and 7pm on a Friday, but the Yorkshire Bull Terrier forces me to take a detour route. I put on my orange wellington boots but in the process I stumble over a Persian boomerang. I end my move at Derington Concerville, the land of the dead.

It is obviously against the law in the state in question to use such accusations towards residents, or any matter that hints at evidential residency. This apparently takes you to the Wellington Estate of Affairs and Conduct, in which the detour will be no less than null, rendering your plan ineffective.

Stix: your counter-attack is obviously forbidden, since you are not allowed to edit other people's moves in any shape or form. This derogatory move means you have to move back two spaces to Waterloo Derghtorian.

Having had to join the party rather late, i will have to use A Few Tricks Up My Sleeve. First off, the A Few Tricks Up My Sleeve Act of 1978 states that if the trick is used to be upon the opponent, or a companion, while in a rather West location to the loci, then the initial user must differentiate between the two positions and thus creating the reverb affect, and so ground is slowly gained. Furthermore, the ground gained is likely to have caused non stop placement due to the differential reverb effect. Therefore, using the Calculus of Trains Act of 2001, the intergral of the reverbial place is taken. And thus, i have safely arrived at Euston.

EDIT: After the initial break, i have realised i have made a mundane mistake in that i did not take the constant into account. As such, because of the equilateral distances between me and ConfusedCartman, we have both been pushed to Seven Sisters.

Solid move, but you seem to have forgotten a crucial step: According to the D's and Above Act (the 1642 set, not the 1548 set), none who's name begins with anything other than A, B, C, or D can set foot on Seven Sisters. You have been moved back, leaving me in the lead.

Touché Cartman, but you have made one Vital Error! The 1642 set states in a new rule that while it is indeed true that none who's name begins with anything other than A, B, C, or D can set foot on Seven Sisters, they add to the rule that if the initial letter is repeated in the name, then they are also prohibited access to Seven Sisters. Which once again puts us on equal ground at Tottenham Hale.

back on topic

As acted upon by the Governors of St. Arlington's Palace in 1777, Proposition 876 allows any players who arrive late into the festivities and are localised in a Down Under position to move forward passed all players that did not vote YES on Regulation 44*. Thus putting me in the lead.

*Regulation 44 allows Beanie Bears into pubs and bars after 5pm on the fourth Thursday of September. I was on a business trip at the time but my wife (who has a rather large collection of Beanie Bears and likes to take them out on our wedding anniversary, which coincidentally happens to land on the fourth Thursday of September every seven years) voted for me.
As you will all remember, none of you voted YES for Regulation 44 (because Beanie Bears tend to crowd the barstool areas and eat all the beer nuts) so when the votes were counted a landslide NO was the decision that was passed with only two votes being counted for a YES.

Gentlemen, PLEASE. You're all forgetting Section D, Sub Article 3 of the Chicago amendment: "All residents of Mordor are to be given free passage on the subway". As such, I have taken the subway past west east street Philidelphia, where I have found a new clue- it was in the Ballroom, this I'm sure!

As such, since the incident in question took place in the ballroom, it turns this entire game upside down! Now, that means it ISN'T 1753 rules, it's 1754 rules!

This means that previous moves are now rendered illegal. For example, you should know that, under 1754 rules, ONLY those whose name begins with Z may enter Seven Sisters, regardless of other factors. As such, your moves are now rendered illegal and void. YOU LOSE. GOOD DAY SIR.

While you indeed know your stuff, you have clearly not heard The B Plan of Section D, regarding rule 1754. As of 1859, this rule was rendered void due to it's extreme nature and should be regarded as rule 2753. Which is of course the new 2000 rules put in place with rule 1753. Thus, so far all moves are valid and the game can continue!

This proposition is simply preposterous, you dimwitted scallywags.

Quite simply, the next move is to transfer all the board pieces to sector 23-D, wherein they will engage in a coin-toss tourney, with each participant required to roll a 5 on the die simultaneously with their toss, which has to remain of the ratio of 5:3 ratio of heads to tails for the remainder of the staring contest, in which, of course, they most hold their breath until someone laughs.

Then, and only then, they may continue their journey through the underground sewer systems straightforward to Hammersmith and City Railway, where we will emerge.

Surely you jest! That presumption is quite preposterous, The Sheffield Act of 1845 was a governmental sham, therefore your your "free kick" is exempt, and I shall take your placehold.

Settle down lads, due to proposition DL3 settled in 1990, this rousing game of Mornington Crescent was settled the moment the Lord of Darkness RockSauron entered the game 'causing an automatic victory. There is nout we can do other than accept graceful defeat.

Why thats Outlandish!! Proposition DL3, Section 2A, Paragraph 34A, Clearly states Mornington Crescent can only be complete when a single Player uses "Mornington Crescent" in a witty and preposterous fashion, Which can only be acheived by attaining to The Golden London Rule Set, which was proposed in 1798, and Finally approved by The Official Penn Avenue Committee in 1920, after over a century of fervent and furious debate. But of course not without the Compromise to The Golden London Rule Set Debate of 1890, Which Allowed a two placehold leap, as long as it pertained to The Revised Rule Set inacted in 1885, Which stated a two placehold leap was inadequate and would not satisfy Rule 135Q, set in place after a player from Dublin retaliated with an illegal moveset, never before deemed acceptable by the Official Waltersford Communion, which would always challenge immature tustles with the forementioned Penn Avenue Committee, until The Annual Kingsley League disbanded both the Penn Avenue Committee and The Official Waltersford Communion. Completely obliterating all rules, regulations, and revisions set in place by both Parties. Unfortunately thereafter, The Annual Kingsley League was accused of unnapproved dispersement, and it too was Disbanded. To this day, The Rule Sets put in place by The Penn Avenue Committee and The Official Waltersford Communion are argued by players across the board, and are currently in the cycle of discussion by The Supreme Crescent Community, Who helped inact The Mornington Faction. Who is arguing the importance and signifigance of all activities of The Supreme Crescent Community. Even though being the inferior, opposing, less important, and least influential party in Sector 1B.

Touche. However, as written under the Lal Amendment, the Mornington Faction is now no more, and thus everything you've written is now void.

As such, seeing as how you have wasted your time writting all that, as said in Sub Paragraph D3 of Article 42,


"And he who shall waste the other player's time shall be punishable by Catapault"

FIRE ZE MISSLES!

I concur, LittleBigGiant. According to Rule 2A Part B of ruleset 1368, which is in effect no matter what:

Those who appear to have little to no intelligence may not play Mornington Crescent.

In addition, Part 4C of the same ruleset says:

If and when Mornington Faction ceases to exist, the Golden Path to Transcity will open.

And as RockSauron said, the Mornington Faction is no more, which means I will take this Golden Path to Transcity and take control of Smith Co. in Transcity.
