Ack! I'll sit this one out. I can never seem to start well in a No-Nonsense Parisian game. I always miss the ability to triple back-play in the early game.

Yeah, I can only double-back play. I'll take Kilburn.

My favourite Mornington Crescent joke is the -single back play, after these two inconsistently spelled plays.

Hmm... tough game already. I have a feeling this should shake things up a bit, and put a stop to any Rotherhithe Gambits. I think I'll start off with a Single-Back-Play at Heathrow Terminal 4.

King's Cross. Good to build up momentum, and because it's near Mornington Crescent. That, and I found this A-Bomb on the ground.

I'm sorry, but this ruleset precludes nuclear stuff, Bingbing. I believe that the Terrorist Gambit is legal though, which has a similar effect, if you've consolidated outwards.

I go for Waterloo to draw you into an oval arc.

Oh, but you forgot that doing so allows me to activate the Terrorist Gambit. *blows up Mornington Crescent*

I hereby declare this game to be impossible to win. That, or we go make a new station and use it instead.

In addition, the Rumberg Section 452 1/2 prevents that, and also creates a passage between King's Cross and Dollis Hill. I hereby move to Dollis Hill to get the loop going.

EDIT: By clarifcation, Rumberg Section 452 1/2 prevents using Waterloo to draw someone in King's Cross into a oval loop. Attempting to do so just creates a line between King's Cross and Dollis Hill for the rest of the current game. The offender must be sent into Spoon (for 3 turns) or Angband (for 1 turn) at their choice.

Sorry, but all No-Nonsense games do not allow for no win condition. After all, playing such a game would be nonsense, which as we all know has a penalty of 6 turns in spoon followed by a loss of 3 kph velocity, with a corresponding momentum loss.
For my move, I'll go to Bank, to deposit my life savings.

Oh, but the Dollis Hill loop is in effect. As a result, your pointing out of the rules is void and null. In addition, you must move to Dollis Hill, and you will take the penalty instead of me. It's in the Rodneskey No-Nonsence Clarification #435.

Besides, the only thing we need is a new station we need to win. Dugandy perhaps?

My mistake. However, in accordance with "No-Nonsense (Parisinian or Siamese) Rules Compiliation, pg. 0x1A24, all rules clairifications regarding Mornington Crescent apply, even if the chosen place is illegal, if the quartering has transpired. Further, on page 0x433AF3 if a new station is chosen for the victory, it must always be an anagram of a French City. I can't think of anything off-hand for Dugandy.

And a retrograde Dollis Hill.

Why does Bingbing keep trying to blow up Mornington Crescent anyway? It's a rare gambit as it is.

In theory, if I move to Pimlico, it should break the Dollis Hill loop.

I'm going to attempt the quadruple-back play and say I'm going to buy a ticket for Camden Town and get off early at Mornington Crescent, but I will actually buy a ticket for Kentish Town and get off at Camden Town.
Hopefully this should put me ahead by 3.1415 points as long as nobody uses the Circus link.

It sucks when you tell someone what they need to do to stop you, doesn't it? Oxford Circus. Now I'm 2.71828183 metres ahead!

Oh, that wasn't an optimal move at all! You've left me open to swwop in now and move to Elephant & Castle, which gives me control of the entire southeast and a good chunk of the east, and a very strong position for next turn.

Cunning riposte there. That blocks me off from Zones 1-4, so I'll have to scrape up something from the outer...oooh, no, there's still the second square open.

Harrow and Wealdstone, and Mornington Crescent in two.

Gah, that blocks me out of zones 1 through C, so I'm going to have to play Amersham and hope somebody else plays the second half of the combo to block your play.

You mean Picadilly Circus? It actually comboes nicely with E&C, and allows Matt and I to launch any invasion we so choose.

Ah, but you forgot that on the third Wednesday of every month you can only travel to Dollis Hill from Picadilly Circus.

Quick jab back to Dollis Hill.

Also, Morning Crescent was blown up. By me. Did they fix it? Did it really happen? What's 2 + 2?

I think I'm going to go for the Pentuple-Back-Play. Firstly, I'm going to say I'm buying a ticket for... Aww, who am I kidding?

Dollis Hill
