    Ealing Broadway, and Colin, you're in Spoon so the double reverse is
    blocked.

    If I used Sheldon's shuffle I could go via Euston and then claim Mornington
    Crescent? I suppose it depends whether you are doing the city line as top
    tube, seat tube or down tube..

    Nice try. There's no Spoon until someone's passed through Tooting Bec.

    This brings back memories! On my first visit to London, as a boy of 11
    more years ago than I am going to admit, I asked a very proper City
    type with umbrella and Derby (Bowler?) where was the nearest Tube
    Station. He assumed a puzzled expression in then said in a superior
    fashion, "Oh, you mean the Underground Station!"

    Is that via Woodford or Newbury Park?

    Hainault? Via Badger Bank, surely?

    Requires poor French allowing Hainault to be confused with Hinault.

    Not in the least; count the control markers on the railway termini. He
    can't go via Badger Bank until he satisfies Condition K.13, and that lays
    Monument wide open.

    I must admit that I was under the strong impression that Badger Bank
    was only playable in the Manchester Time Triallists' variant ("Over
    Peover"), where it allows an automatic win via Cat and Fiddle or
    Monk's Heath Garden Centre, unless you are playing with the King
    Street quadrilateral reversed. But I may be mistaken.

    Only if you're following the interepretation of the Judges' decision
    following Covent Garden, LeDuc v. Champignon as published in the January
    2002 edition of the Oldham /Gazetteer/. Yes, these interpretations were
    generally accepted for 6 months or so, and they have much to recommend
    them, but may I refer you to the letter in the Aug. 2003 /Morningtonia/
    from Seganku himself?

    I think you are. Elephant and Castle, and Monument are still in play,
    with three tokens still on East Cheam.

    But no more than two tokens can be carried over in a game lasting more
    than 24 hours!
