You were doing really well. If you're still stuck, the rule book for Morning Crescent is out of print, but if you google for the game, you'll probably find the rules online.

Elephant and Castle.

London Bridge

*Times Square threw me off, and the google results are shakey at best. Do you have to stay on the same line?

I think Wikipedia has a good run-down of the most important rules.

Okay, so a reverse diagonal on the southern approach... Liverpool Street.

Well, Minnie, do you have a move? If it helps, Overground stations are in play.

Liverpool, excellent play.

I'll play a double reverseback and say Hendon Central. Before you say "Illegal move!" Keep in mind that the Harrington Rule allows me the option of playing a double reverseback within 5 moves of invocation.

boom goes the dynamite!

Not entirely true; we're playing the Baker Street variant, remember. That means that although you can play a double reverseback here, it's only permissable if your major advance has at least two lines of approach; otherwise we could all end up in Nidd and you know what happens then.

Anyway, Cass's move has opened up my rearguard, which allows me to play Monument. Ha!

Ugh. That leaves me with no choice. Canary Wharf.

Well played, Bango and Minnie. Are you deliberately ganging up on me?

You're on the right track, Minnie. (Right track? Geddit? Right track?)

Just keep going, you're doing fine. Remember the name of the game: Mornington Crescent.

Ha. For a while there, I thought you'd misinterpreted my advice up there for a move. If only I could have made that move.

Swiss Cottage. And since "cottage" is a kind of loaf, that scores double.

Green Gables.

We're not making much progress here. Somebody needs to reverse shunt down that open diagonal, or we'll be here all year.
