Jump-back to Woodford, which also gives me a small stake in South Woodford.

Oh wank.

Well, if you back me into a corner I guess I'll just have to do something reckless. Say... redefine the playing field!

You cheeky bastard... I didn't know we were sinking into the tomfoolery that was 4th Edition. Alright... alright...

I'll take Tegel. And yes, it's an exchange and I'm aware of that. I will accept the charges.

Hm, well, such disarray is a perfect time to rush into

Tempelhof
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I call foul! Backtracking, trackbacking, and tackbracking are strictly forbidden from a 9th edition game as per the Cambridge Accord of 1904. The most recent edition of the Almanac states this very clearly:

Quote from: Stovold's Mornington Crescent Almanac (2001)
You cannot and shall not move in a backlike direction without first having proceeded in a frontlike direction UNLESS moving from a station beginning with a vowel or the letter Y.

While everyone is distracted, I'll take Schulzendorf bei Tegel, since you chumps clearly didn't think ahead. You know what this means? I can initiate a double-take maneuver and steal the adjacent stations as long as they're owned! Heiligensee and Tegel are mine.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Um. No Always. Just no.

You haven't passed through any of the correct stations to make that move. Just jumping in you're in a very weak position to move anywhere except maybe Karl Marx Straße.

I never planned to keep them. I'll switch Heiligensee and Tegel out to purchase Friedrichstraße and set up a switching station there.

Take my station, Always. I'm moving to Wedding which allows me one step-up maneuver. I claim Euston, specifically Euston on the Northern Line.

I am but one move away from Mornington Crescent, gentlemen! ;)
