    (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.
