    My favourite way to while away the evenings.

    In honour of frequent flyers everywhere, I'll start: Hatton Cross.

    Clever - the "District Line reverse switch" so early in the game - Upminster

    I bought a five-day Travelcard from a trip to London in 2006 but only visited for three days. So it should still have validity on it. The card knows only the 2006 Tube map, so I'm using it to get to Shoreditch.

    Right, in that case I shall punt round the Hangar Lane Gyratory System, going backwards towards Krap Yrubsnif.

    Which is, of course, forwards in this hemisphere, as we all know.

    Jubilate! And speaking of Jubil- prefixes, Willesden Green, capturing an unconquered square and straddling the Zone 3 border. *smug look*

    Well played. I'll invoke the Four Greens Penalty clause as amended 1863. That means we have to play the next 4 moves on District.

    Shit I think I've snookered myself. Umm, how about Temple?

    I'm getting tired. Cannons bring to mind castles, and since I'm persona non grata at Liz's place I better go to Tower Hill instead.

    Ooh penalty I'm afraid. Missing the fourth district stop when four green penalty has been invoked is rather foul play the likes of which have not been seen since the 1981 exhibition match when John Smith followed St Johns Wood with an underarm move to Earls Court. A shunt to Chigwell for you.
