I start at Mornington Crescent. I win.
FUCK YEAH MORNINGTON CRESCENT.I open with Harris' gambit and move from Wimbledon to Wimbledon Park
>>20574874As you played this exact same maneuver in our last game, you have invoked the 1914 Automatic Ban, as that game was played less than one year ago.Nice playing with you!I shall take New Cross Gate for a quick rush hour start.
I take White Chapel.
>>20574948Every FUCKING time with this white chapel shit
>>20574966Now now, let's keep this civil gentlmen.I start at Whitechapel.
I like Calvinball.
>>20574994>>20574966>>20574948I kill a bunch of prostitutes a slip their underwear into your pockets when you aren't looking.I scream for the constable.
Well chaps, Lets get this started proper, I start at Euston station.
>>20574887Dude, Harris' gambit died in the Eurasian 2006 when Matt Karry swept Harris-fags with the Modified Russian Kensington
I take Old Street interchange and double-barricade against backtracking. Risky, I know, but if anyone tries to fast-track I can escape down Highbury and Islington via Essex Road.Come at me, gentlemen.
>>20575079>Dick up your ass>Why.jpg
Hah.I summon a gaggle of street musicians to begin an awesome steel drum/reggae beat at all stations simultaneously. I also use "amazing beat" to increase the rate at which money crosses palms at up to one pound per every two listeners.Your move.
>>20575055The why aren't you using it? I mean for the most part the Harris is alright in a casual environment. Granted this is /tg/ so everyone is going to be bringing their A game to this. I move to Charing Cross, single barricade Via Euston. I know I lose a double from the length but I feel Uppity.
I start at Canal St.Gonna be a long game.
>>20575088I assume you have no counter-move then? In that case I bypass Angel and take Kings Cross and St Pancras interchanges with the same stroke. I double-barricade these as well and fortify my hold on the Northern line.
I'm going to use the Fairbanks Clause of 1962, so that I can start on an already moving train.Then I cross rail drift.
>>20575104I respond to this by starting at Baker Street and move my way to Barons Court, and triple barricade the intersection.
>>20575140According to rule 32d, I guess I get to move again.Baron's Court to Greenford, single barricade. I'm playing it safe tonight, I guess
At least post the damn board so people can follow along.
>>20575136Fuck your shit.I repo King William and ped a row to criss-cross all three claphams.Suck my moist nuggets asswipe.
>>20575140In response I further barricade Kings Cross along the Metropolitan line in the direction of Baker. I then tubthump and castle to Euston. Now I just have to think of how to stop at Mornington and not go past it. Think I'll wait a while and see if anyone debars or tobthumps in response.
>>20575140>>20575216Wait. If Barons Court is Barricaded thrice and I already barricaded Charing Cross, and someone is taking Canal, then haven't we just caused the most epic dick move in history? I take a reverse track back to Euston And Single Barricade it only on one side. Gentlemen, I do believe it is at that point in the game where people are going to start declaring things, I tubthump for Camden Town and Single Barricade. Oh shit I think I made a locked loop.
>>20575207Well you got in first so I lost some of my hold on Northern line, but because I was 6 and 7 I end up on Camden Town. Throwing dodgers as I bypass Euston and changing the guard so I can't be fizzled. Either run the gauntlet or come at me in Camden, Sir. I could use more entertainment.
>>20575216>>20575238Ahahaha. This'll be fun. I tobthump all the way over to Hendon Central and barricade every entrance except the southernmost. Mornington Crescent here I come!
>>20575238So we're both in Camden Town then. DUEL IT IS!Declaring a Sunday Roast.
Wait, guys, I'm lost.How do you even play? What's the goal?It's like you're saying random words.
>>20575274You've never played Mornington Crescent?Well then you're just not a true gentleman.
>>20575268> sunday roastSome people are dicks.
>>20575268I will have you know we are on opposite sides! Sunday Roast can, oh wait it is a sunday! Fine I accept your Challenge and put my marker on Edgware and wager up quad barricades!
I'm invoking handicap access bypass to claim Waterloo and therefore establish a transThames bonus.
>>20575301Good luck with that seeing as someone had to start on CANAL.
>>20575294>EdgwareHoly goddamn, you're cocky. I'm going over to Kennington to take advantage of you screwing yourself majorly.
>>20575295I'll meet you head-on. Let's keep this on the Northern line; my marker is Morden. I meet the quad barricades and second on North Harrow. 6 and 7 strong. Your turn.
I take Embankment and Charing Cross to take Whitehall, then I break Whitehall to start the German Offense.Sirens are sounding.Three turns until all barricades are broken, gentlemen.
>>20575334Ahaahaha! Everything is going according to plan. I'll cruise over to Kenton.Two rounds, unless someone interferes!
Blast your overcrowded, constantly delayed transport network.I'll WALK from Paddington to the finish and still manage to beat the lot of you.
>>20575363Shit, when did the sirens start? This duel better be over before that or we're both screwed.
>>20575274The aim is to be the first to get to Mornington Crescent.The rules are pretty complicated. You'll kind of get the hang of it if you pay attention though.
I TAKE A BUS.
>>20575376 Over to Lancaster Gate! One more turn!
>>20575317Not exactly. >>20575334JUST AS PLANNED. I am invoking the 2002 ruling on Lockdowns pertaining to northern portions via modern building requirements. As a result I do a Tubthump and a Flipflop on Gospel Oak due to pertinent intersections on my mark. All my barricades move from Northern Line Kentish town West and Finchley which leads to>>20575327My 4-2-3 gambit thanks to the guy who took white chapel. As a result all police are rerouted through the Picadilly Circus. Barricades will fall, but not this day... As a result I must also move half my wager to Golders Green. Gentlemen
>>20575391You can't Lancaster this turn; it's still barricaded and you need to sweep before you can traverse, even after it comes down. You have Bryson Dawes to thank for that, by the way.
>British people playing a strange British metro gamewhy are you so strange britainthis is why there will always be an england
>>20575410Yeah, I was just about to point that out.He can take the other way round though.
>>20575397Oh you bastard... you magnificent bastard. Know where I landed? Watford. BLOODY WATFORD!Damn. Guess I'll start by skip-jumping to Harrow-On-The-Hill, seeing I'm no longer tied and there's no fizzers on my route.
>>20575410Ah fuck off. Fine. I'll go around, sets me back a turn, but still one more until I'm there.
>>20575436Oh, and I would like it noted that I'm not barricading so I can stay Uppity, but I will tubthump again.
>>20575436>going to Harrow-On-The-HillWhy would you even do that.In Mornington Crescent or in reality.
>>20575454rrrgh.. you're straying dangerously close into my territory. I'll stay on the defensive in Lancaster.
I spike the river with my entire opium supply. That ought to delay you rascals!
>>20575412Americans can actually play the game too, you just have to know the ruleset. >>20575419This should be fun.>>20575436Sometimes you have to embrace the crazy. Like today. As a result of me no longer being uppity I can only partially reroute via 4-2-3 through the Euston Handicapped axis, I tubthump over to Kings Cross, however I am... ugh forced to Kings Cross St Pancreas. The sorry bloke in Lancaster has to make a move this turn as a result, unless someone actually wants to declare Victoria Express due to current siren situation. Note if that happens we all have to move markers. And not in a fun way.
>>20575461There are some ok routes you can take from there. And you'll note that no one has barricaded, obstructed or lollygagged him.
>>20575461Believe me, I don't want to be here. But it's the only way I can stay Uppity, and I'll need that. At this point I'd like to invoke Dapper Deluxe on Northern and Central lines, as explained in Wexelbaum 1967. I checked; it's still legal.
>>20575389Oh god, you're one of them.
Goddammit, I think you guys barricaded me in Lancaster. I'll start to take down the barricades toward Mornington Crescent then.
>>20575521But with the current delay and the 4-2-3 on effect you might miss a mark! I Cannot Challenge Dapper Deluxe as I am now on Kings Cross. I must now move to Euston Square due to my handicap. I can take no actions until next turn>>20575531You get one free move, to where I don't know.
i wanna traverse from north greenwich to southwest warwickshire WITHOUT flipping or breaking down the last 3 latitude
>>20575206Is... is that a MODERN MAP?!Goddammit, this is why we establish which version we're playing off the bat.
>>20575552I guess I'll use this to go over to London Bridge. >>20575554That's gonna take some serious work, Mr. Nearly-quads.>>20575557Calm down, he's just a modern purist.
>>20575576im seriously considering just doing what Pensley did in the Oxford '84 game>bricaled canarynobody has bricaled anything this round, captcha
>>20575552It's very risky, I understand that. And here's where it gets riskier: Wobbling past West Harrow to Rayners Lane with full Uppity AND magnifying Dapper Deluxe. If I can pull it off I'll shunt everyone on Picadilly line and down the barricades along my route to King's Cross. It will reset my marker but at the moment it can't get much worse. If it works.
>>20575609If that's what you're going to try, I'll nibtop to Neasden and quad barricade the east and south exits.
>>20575599Oh fuck. The conditions are right for that to be done right now. Just remember though, you will have to somehow get Blackfriars...>>20575609Then these are truly troubled times. Fine. I do a reverse back on to Moorgate, thus gaining upity I Quad Barricade and tubthump to Angel and still maintain my Handicap access, losing it two from now. Sirens are back on schedule gents. We have 4 turns until coppers start tearing them down.
>>20575621Forgot to mention, I'm almost out of barricades. 2 left, to be specific. Normally I wouldn't mention this, but it seems like we're playing the '92 version, which requires me to announce this.
>>20575648HAH, the slight and misdirection allows me to institute the Olympic Rules circa 2012 which quadruples the amount of traffic on the line while doubling the Rozzer Rate.You've got two turns AND you're delayed when moving.
THE ROZZER RATE IS NOW 150
I'm gonna put my penultimate barricade next to Moor Park. I'm almost there, better watch out!
>>20575695Oh fuck. Oh no you fucking didn't. I'll tear your dick out, bastard.
>>20575668>>20575656>>20575648>>20575621Ha! And they said it couldn't be pulled off! Arrived at Rayners Lane. Everyone on the Picadilly Line is shunted, and all barricades between here and Kings Cross on the Picadilly are down. Everyone shunted, this one's for you.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA_sVHBNcOU
>>20575656I will trade you four of my barricades and my handicapped access for one call to order since I already used mine for the 4-2-3 and seeing as someone (>>20575668) used the 2012 Olympics rule to slow me down thanks to me being an American! I don't care about the Rozzer Rate but the traffic! With the handicapped access and the traffic I don't get the normal bonus. Freaking Olympics Rule. At least I am not shunted
>>20575718One thing you overlooked. From Moor Park, I have a direct path to Mornington Crescent. In fact, I'm right next to it now, at Morden. Barricading the east exit. It's all or nothing now.
>>20575736Do you see which map version we are using? You just got shunted! I don't even want to think about the poor bloke who took canal st! Also we barricaded any direct route 5 turns ago. Granted The barricades now have 3 turns until they are all torn down, but I haven't seen anyone redirect tracks except the picadilly line.
>>20575761Argh. I guess I'll take the Surplus Package for a fresh start since I just barricaded myself in. Back at Notting Hill Gate. Fresh start, with a plan in mind. Oakwood onto Paddington. Anyone recognize this move?
>>20575736All well and good, but there was a duel on the Northern Line right next to Mornington (Camden Town) not too many turns ago. Not to mention that my marker is on Morden and so you'll be slowed by my hasslers. Express to Hammersmith. Can't ride it further due to traffic (bloody traffic!)
>>20575789Hah. I invoke the Swann rule and intensify the traffic all around you. You have no choice but to turn back!
>>20575779I do believe the appropriate response to what your doing is "Shit Just Got Real." I can't even call to order. I go from Angel to Euston, and I now offer bidding on my four barricades for one call to order.
Different yankee doodle. Calling in my marker from Embankment after waking under Nelson's column after a rousing piss-up... Taking a risk here with widdershins on the circle line. No barricades. Roller skates ready for monument.God, what I'd give to not be a tourist right now, save the Queen.
>>20575823I'll bite. MM on Oval?
>>20575838Just realized that I could have salvaged my position at Morden. I hadn't placed my marker yet. Dammit!
>>20575821You forget that I'm still Uppity AND Dapper Deluxe. No need to turn back, but I am slowed to one station a turn and that's aggravating, I'll give you that.
>>20575838I do believe this gives us an accord I will keep my marker and position paused in accordance with the 2004 clause on non turn bidding. Which, oh yeah Invokes Duchess of Essex Rules. That's right everyone. We are going full retard. Also>>20575870 Duchess rules are in full effect, you know what that means... All moves are now in converse and tubthumps are free.
>>20575878I place my marker on Preston Road and move to Queensway, and tubthump along all the exits along the way. This is gonna be a fun time.Also taking a trip so no one tries to fuck up my moves.
>>20575909No one's gonna respond to my move? Have you all given up?
>>20575982Nope Just waiting for other players to take their turns in order man. Modern rules. Now if they have given up well then we go by mark an measure for close but, we should just wait and se
>>20576003So we're waiting for >>20575870?
>>20576028Yup. Well that or the ten minute rule.
>>20576082Gah. Always the ten minute rule. Might as well start playing again now.
>>20575982>>20576003>>20576028>>20576082Sorry, haven't had lunch so made sandwich. Barons Court, protecting against loss of Dapper Deluxe in heavy traffic because of Frome's Reruling of '94.
>>20576105Gooood dammmiiiit. I swear, if this weren't play by post I would have decked you by now.I'm going to Seven Sisters, not like I have a choice.
>>20576105What no tubthumping? It's freaking free. Duchess of Essex rules after all. Cops are starting to turn down barricades.I go to Chalk Town Via Kings Cross and Tubthump. I also lose my Handicap Access and now can actually do uppity stuff again. Yay.
>>20576161Chalk Farm. God I am so tired right now.
>>20576161No tubthumping because I'm still hoping the traffic will die down soon. Barricades are falling. But I'm not giving away the full plan yet. Earl's Court, once again protecting against loss of Dapper Deluxe in heavy traffic because of Frome's Reruling of '94. Mornington Crescent, ho!
>>20576161Warren Street onto Victoria. I tubthump anywhere I can.
>>20576200Why are you holding onto Dapper Deluxe so fervently? It's almost never worth keeping past the first half.Haha captcha, I get it, you gave be blobshit at the tops and bottoms and then say "theyhid". Haha.
Aw come on guys, we were just getting to the fun part!
One on into Camden Town. However due to me being uppity and at the scene of the previous Crime I must re agree to Code Duel and Negotiations. I wager Hethrow keep my mark on Camden Town. If I lose I move to Heathrow and I am immediately Deported as per the "Uppity American" Law of 2011. If I win I may move one, and I can only move to Mornignton Crescent.>>20576200 Seeing as you are the previous duelist you have to wager Remember if I win this I win, if I lose, well. I lose.
>>20576287And also the most tactical part. Be patient. A good play, at this stage, takes time.
>>20576313If you haven't planned out every potential move by this stage you'll never get into the pro leauges.Anyway, I issue a challenge on Archway, a Monday Madness. Because after all, it IS monday now.
>>20576329 Cannot happen until my challenge wager for returning to a previous duel occurs because "Uppity American Law"
>>20576361Alright, I'll barricade it off and wait.
>>20576305You know, I wasn't expecting this but I accept, matching the wager under the May 1988 accepted ruling of 'Australians should go home or back to Kangaroo Hill'. I wager Watford, Harrow-On-The-Hill and Hammersmith to make up for Heathrow's value. My mark is also Camden Town. I'll start proceedings with a bilateral move. Scouser Sweepers to begin. Your response?
>>20576376I'm moving to Acton Town. Hope that'll be enough to intercept one of you.
>>20576376Egads. My response is going to be wager Gospel Oak, Euston Square, and Moorgate as a response I Scouser Sweeper one and change the Rozzer Rate to 160.
>>20576430Egads indeed.I'm gonna move to Becontree and tubthump, assuming that's still free. Once this duel is over, the Monday Madness is still free.
>>20576451Beacon Tree and Tubtuhump?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Do you realize what you have done? Do you know why you hold on to Dapper?! Do You realize what the next wager will do to me?
>>20576476I let go of dapper long ago. Your move, anon.
>>20576488Yes indeed YOU let go of Daily Dapper, ANON on the other hand has held on to that shit right now!
>>20576430Raising you all stations between Croxley and North Harrow on them Metropolitan line, countering by spending those accumulated Tubthumps and combining them with my Dapper Deluxe to go Full Dandy. With my new status (as allowed by Duchess of Essex), I employ Friends in High Places and increase Copper Cop-In's by three full times. You shouldn't have allowed me to go Full Dandy.
>>20576515Oh no you don't you ruffian!I own Chesham, Amersham, Watford, Croxley and have high tolls for ticket at the whole line from Chesham to Harrow-on-the-Hill!I may not be an duke, but I'm still a count of Oxford! I do not allow your games in court!
>>20576548Chalfont & Latimer, and I'll try Monday Madness. Again.
>>20576548Influx duels and wagers resolve first and she has Dapper Daily, now FULL DAPPER, which means the only way you can stop her is if you are a prince or higher.>>20576515And Due to the Influx of Cops I can no longer Bid, nor Wager stations that have an "E or B" Even if I own them, and as a result due to the Full Dandy and the 4-2-3 bonus with Duchess rules I no longer have any moves, my marker is moved to Heathrow Terminal 5 while Uppity and I am Deported thus being unable to win this game unless I can manage to win Times Square by 12PM Eastern Time. Which is aside the point because Anon has one the Duel wager and is now on Camden Town and owns everything I previously did due to friends in high places.
>>20576548NOOOOOOO! DO YOU REALISE WHAT YOU'VE DONE?!An instant failure of Full Dandy means loss of Uppity and Dapper Deluxe. In a station with opposing Scouser Sweepers. Soccer Hooliganry, gentlemen. All over the Northern line. All stations. Anyone there gets sent to Upminster... ... except me due to my wager, meaning I'm sent back home! FUCK!Damn I love this game! Sorry we couldn't complete our duel Coffee-Kun, I guess neither of us will be reaching Mornington Crescent. But cheers for the game. And thanks to everyone at home for playing along, too!
>>20576585>>20576609I'm... not sure which one of us is right. I'll send a letter to the Mornington Crescent Administration Board for clear ruling, but it could be a few months. But so long as it proves my victory I can wait. I look forward to hearing the verdict, Coffee-Kun. Until then.
>>20576609>>20576625Aww. Trip off then. Thanks for the game, see you around, anons.- !zigBc04/NY>>20576625
>>20576609Cheers Noble Anon. To think two people with foreign modifiers got as far as we did. This game shall go in the record books, I do believe as the first time 4-2-3, Full Dandy Duchess of Essex while a Monday Maddness and Sunday Roast were in effect simultaneously, even more so with foreigners in play.
Gentlemen.Every few months I start these games and let them play out. I start them the same way, do not interfere and they generally go the same way. I believe /tg/ is wonderfully suited to Mornington Crescent and tonight has proven me right. This has been the most entertaining one to date. Thank you for the game.Until next time.
>>20576777thank you gentleman.politesage to let this wonderful thread lay to rest.
