Aww, why did this die? Daxx and Gungnir were both so close to winning...

Anyway, anybody in for a restart?
I'll start at Harrow on the Hill. I know it's not the best starting position, but I'm up for a challenge :)
And please don't post here if you don't know the rules. Explaining them while playing will get annoying fast.
I assume I don't have to tell you we're playing with the 1994 version, with the 1998 Official Update, including the suggestions made in the OU.

I'm at East India and counter-cornering you're start, Didero.

Also I agree about your stance on the rules as well as the rule set we're using.

Oh hey, you really know the rules. :)
I already thought of a countermove, but the OU states you need at least 2 people to make their move before you can move again in at least the first 5 turns.
I'm only posting to point you to this interactive map of the London underground, which should make it easier for people that are not too accustomed to the game yet to find stations.

I'll start at Oxford Circus and make my way from there.

So after Harrow and East India, the obvious follow-up is Covent Garden.

Hah! Since my sector's still clear, I can skip Preston Road, and continue to Wembley Park. And that gives me the Stratfield Bonus. Let's see you bypass that one :)

I'm going to jump in with a corner switch at paddigton, that should take me down to baker street giving me a total of a six way bonus to start.

Not with my Stratfield bonus. Change that to a 2 way bonus :)

Damn, well i guess all i'll be able to do is call the colt queens park modification, and move to Kilburn High Road.

The 1998 Official Update removed dealing cards at the start of the game. You have to earn them now.
You can however start normally at Knightsbridge, since there's a clear waterway to it.

Interesting use of your two-way bonus...


I sidestep from Wembley Road to Neasden and Dollis Hill. That should help along my Double Route.

I will. I can't find "cqpm" in my rulebooks. Is it an abbreviation for something?
Also, I don't think it's your turn yet.
