Finchley Central. And freeze Tooting Bec.


A 'double blinder' ey? I've been in contact with the 1947 champion of Mornington Cresent and she say's that as good as a double blinder is (especially played after an unholy trinity) the term 'freeze Tooting Bec.' was phased out due to confusion over the word 'freeze' in this context. Although still legally viable it no longer has the 'whopping' impact it once possessed. Therefore I play the 'Sailors' card:

"Cutty Sark"

What? Don't talk nonsense, dear.

I'm using the first Confusion save; reboot at Seven Sisters (as per the 2006 revised rules detailed at the 11th annual Watford champs.)

I know using '06 rules is considered 'bad form' by some purists, but this is the internet for pete's sake!

East Finchley.

I know that's normally frowned upon as a defence, but given how much freezing was going on I figured it was either that or Stoneleigh.
Game in the works - Project Clocks - on hold for a bit.
Game finished - I am the Law for the OddComp. Looking forward to finishing Clocks so I can show what I can really do!
Current focus - Some microIF. Short experiments to test ideas and actually release something!

Charing Cross. And freeze Elephant and Castle. Take that, Sprite!

Hunh. Wait, doesn't that put us in a strait-shift lockdown? Unless I slide to goodge street, I suppose. Goodge street then. BUT I'm playing a Phoenix Card, and unlocking the Jubilee. Ought to give us a bit of breathing room.

Finchley's already taken?
Well, shame on you.

In any case, I'm taking Woodward Ave. I believe that puts djchallis in "Knip." You know what that means, no moving for three turns!

Google it if you are unsure of the rules.

Funny. Is anyone sure of the rules?
