    Nice try, but in a prime numbered year you leave the door open for a figure-of-eight. That leaves us hurtling towards EAST FINCHLEY
    Ah - but we lost away on Saturday, don't forget. Cockfosters is fine.

      Keep up... the entire Howlett's ruling of 1981 was suspended in 2012 for the Olympics, and never reinstated as far as I know. And MC is much the better for it.

      STRATFORD.
      You are correct...unless you are playing Yorkshire Variation and have just returned from nid; then the Howlett ruling is reactivated on transverse diagonals for one round only.

      That is very true. I can however, play my Lancashire Block to negate the effects of the transverse diagonals. I'm also invoking my 42 wildcard, in case you were thinking of playing any clever games. This all leads rather nicely to:

      I'm going to invoke the Travis expat rule for that ridiculous move and head to Heathrow Terminal 5.

      If you are playing the Lancashire Block in a situation where traverse diagonals are in play then surely you will fall foul of the Swiffington Ascent and be required to head without stopping to Cockfosters?

      The Swiffington Ascent is no longer on the table because Cockfosters has already been played. Nice try though. Of course that failed attempt leaves the door wide open for me to play the Swiffington DESCENT.

      Yes, that's right, you're playing Premier League opposition now.

      An interesting move, however I shall take advantage of the Webb Ellis protocol by using the river bus to North Greenwich.

      Well, since Alperton and Amersham have already been played - I think I'm right in saying I can go for:

      Mill Hill East.
      Not this again.

      Don't think you can; if it's less than a month to Easter then the battleship gambit comes into play. Royal Oak.
