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. No, obviously while the slow and steady path back to to top is possible, it is unlikely...

So you were the one to steal all the Marmite from the whole neighborhood! And not only that, now you've even lost it!

Re: Mornington Crescent

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...

King's Cross.

Collect a railway token, and use it to massively improve rail infrastructure. That should help... civilians... move around.

And here I was thinking I needed to post a certain number of times and wondering when I'd hit that limit :oops:

Re: Mornington Crescent

I know you're baiting me into it, but I kinda wanna see where this goes. I think I'll go with variations 7, 4 and 173 of the Maneuver. Move to Angel , get a Divine Token. Immediately spend it to activate the "God with us" slogan, giving me and any allies a religious fanatic buff. Also, whi...

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...

Re: Mornington Crescent

That means prohibits lineal moves for me as well, and thus I can't move at all.

So I must take a null move stay at London Bridge.

At least I get double Bridge tokens. Double zero is still zero, but could be important if we get into infinitesimal space.

Re: Mornington Crescent

Nice. That allows me to enter the game with a Compass token, which I immediately spend to start at London Bridge.
