Quite right, just as the basic Hampton rules (which I thought were in play here) specify. But with that audacious cross-table move by Bellona and then catchpenny's somewhat patronizing Trafalgar redirect, this game threatens to go completely off the rails. All I can do is heave a deep sigh, examine my remaining options, hold my head high and bid

Westminster

in the hopes that everyone's future plays <stern glare> will show similar respect for the conventions of the game.

(Of course the Westminster tactic also puts me at the top of the Canterbury rotation, as you all have no doubt noticed.)

Oh, I don't think so, Laurie Anne. I see what you did there. Not as sly as you think you are!

Yes, you didn't leave the mix'ed with that. How are you going to account for potential ambush?

Hmmm... I can't make up my mind whether that was very naive or an extremely cunning double-bluff. I shall play a tentative Neasden.

Neasden.
Tentative indeed! Like we don't know an attempt to pull a Royal Fizzbin maneuver when we see it.

If you're going to copy the "Amateur Wargamers and Recreaters of the Battle of Neasden Society's" playbook, at least come out and declare it like a proper kronker.

I was hoping not to play this yet, but needs must...

In this game it was probably both.

Did I hear my name? Ah, not quite. Never mind, I think that calls for a lateral move.
