Re: Song Contest (Reprise)

Huh. I didn't notice that. It is indeed the case, looking back through previous rounds. I blame cognitive biases.

Ahahhaha, excellent! I will match your move, allowing me to join your gambit.

Hollow's Way

Now, with this I have the required number of active gambits to active the Gambit gambit.

Re: Song Contest (Reprise)

Yay!

Since it is still November and thus NaNoWriMo, the theme for the next round is Writing. This is to be interpreted fairly broadly, so songs about adjacent topics such as words, books or stories are also welcome. The deadline is the 29th of November.

Re: Mornington Crescent

It helps a lot. I was indeed hesitating, because the out Suzaku offered is obviously a trap - and even if he generously does not spring it on me, that still would have left me far behind and in moral debt to him.

Blast, I have been foiled! And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for new players and their position of not already being caught up in all the political intrigue that prevents older players from such a counter strategy! I shall head to Hyde Park Corner , and anxiously laugh the whol...

Re: Mornington Crescent

That's... a really good counter, actually. I can't really progress down this road without playing into the Terminator gambit, and if both keep going we my play gets negated through time travel. On the other hand, I have come too far to back out now - I would end up way behind. I guess I'll just have...

Re: Mornington Crescent

I suppose Elephant & Castle will have to do. Now, back in the day, these two were separate moves - you could go to either Elephant or Castle, and their placements and quirky rules allowed for some wonderful schenanigans. But then the superposition gambit caught on - with a proximity token, playe...
