    (I've tried to buy the "Compleat Mornington Crescent Rulebook" online at Amazon bookstores, but apparently it's out of print)

    I found that as well but Waterstones have ordered me a new copy as I've lost my old one.

    Anyway lets open this game up a bit, going for the classic Holland Park

    You are to be commended for such a bold gambit so early in the game. Although some would call it foolhardy.

    Rules for the uninitiated perhaps? General guidelines would do...

    Sadly, Chris and Daan must each forfeit a turn for breaching the Rules. The play remains with "Turnham Green" (although I think Chris is actually turning red...)

    (If the Rules Committee will allow, can Chris's missed turn be served at a time of his own choosing? Please advise)

    If you wish to find out how the game is played then get a copy of NF Stovold’s Mornington Crescent: Rules and Origins
    I presume we are playing Brody's relaxed variant.

    Shepherd's Bush (whew, beat the time limit for the double posting by Hertz and I. I wondered when he was going to swoop in, consummate player that he is reputed to be)

    We're playing Brody's relaxed so it doesn't matter.

    I seem to remember that move was banned back when David McKay, 1986 South Eastern District Winner, was caught using illegal performance enhancing drugs.

    So its going to have to move back to Angel
