Isn't it a little early in the game to be playing a wild?

Not to mention that annise already played Trafalgar Square!

If we're going to start bending rules like this, I'm not sure it's even worth playing.

Can we have an adjudication, please?

The rules clearly allow for duplicates and wilds at this point. Someone needs to update their copy of the Hampton and Tudor Court Rules, I see. Reference Hoyle (2007).

Enough everyone playing their pet stratgies. Time for a tactical blow:

Whitechapel

Which, as a Zone 2 not only nullifies any future Wappings plays, but under the Ripper Amendments all Lurch plays are now double-scored by alternate turns.

I am going to let the Trafalgar thing pass, since I am clearly the only one who cares about playing things correctly, but I want to record officially that I am not happy about it.

Hugh, I believe the M in your name is not only invisible, but silent too :twisted:

A formal complaint? Of course, you know you have to submit that to the office of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern- schplenden- schlitter- crasscrenbon- fried- digger- dingle- dangle- dongle- dungle- burstein- von- knacker- thrasher- apple- banger- horowitz- ticolensic- grander- knotty- spelltinkle- grandlich- grumblemeyer- spelterwasser- kurstlich- himbleeisen- bahnwagen- gutenabend- bitte- ein- nürnburger- bratwustle- gerspurten- mitz- weimache- luber- hundsfut- gumberaber- shönedanker- kalbsfleisch- mittler- aucher von Hautkopft

Good luck. I can't remember the last time anyone heard back from them. Pity we can't appeal to the local the Iberian Council like in the old days.

I miss the Iberian Council [sigh]. Still, after President Folds was found to be weighting second session decisions there was very little to be done except fold the whole thing down.

Ah well . . .

Monument

And don't think I can't see you trying to slide along the side there. You know who you are.

oh man, I hate it when they do this on ISIHAC! However...
Over time the destinations expanded beyond the Underground. ISIHAC was recorded around the United Kingdom, and the game was occasionally modified accordingly; such cases included versions in Slough and Leeds, as well as one in Scotland played during the Edinburgh Fringe arts festival (where it was changed to being Morningside Crescent)[citation needed]. In one game, recorded in Luton, moves ranged as far as the Place de l'Étoile in Paris, Nevsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg, and Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.
so:

Adamo Drive

:P
They call me Threadkiller.

Wow. I haven't seen the Fentoozler gambit since the Wolverhampton bumper round in '97.

Bold, but it rarely turns out in anything better than a fnord draw in the end. So...


Uxbridge

for the block.

A very sneaky move - I had the honour of watching Smythe use that at Hampton Court - , but he was over run by Prenton-Browne playing

Clapham South

A brilliant tactical move I thought, one of the old school players , gone alas this many a year.

This is beyond me now. All I was doing anyway was naming Tube stations!

Oh, great. A Triffid player... :roll:

My mistake. I thought this was a serious match.

Yes, but he was in his car, wasn't he? Glad that rule was changed in the Goddard–Thorn Concord.
