Let's have a game of Mornington Crescent! I'll assume you all know the rules.

The London Underground

I claim Covent Garden.

Yes! I'm initiating the Opposition W-Alternation Hypotenuse Maneuver, and I move to Tottenham Court Road!

Wait.

Are we playing by the Alpha2 ruleset, or the Alpha3 modified ruleset?

Alpha3 modified.

This means that Andy's move is illegal.

Alpha3 modified explicitly bars the use of chopsticks, secret or otherwise. Also, it implemented the Transfer Extortion Exclusion Rule. According to this rule, since Andy started by claiming the entire Green Line, he cannot steal Tottenham Court Road without first transferring to the Brown Line.

I move to Warren Street.

Ah, but I can jump to the brown line through Tottenham Court Road, which is currently vacant, since neither you nor Andy has it.

Brown Line!

I think Andy's only move now is into Dollis Hill...

But I did have Tottenham Court Road! I moved there with the Opposition W-Alternation Hypotenuse Maneuver, remember? Andy's move was invalid so it had no bearing on my move.

Don't try to get sneaky on me, Redbeard! I have my eye on you!

Yes, you had it. But then it was vacated when you moved to Warren Street.

Alpha3 modified, subset XVI
Due to the irregularities in the topography of Tottenham Court Road, a player may only retain hold of it for the turn in which it is claimed.

And so it was! Blimey, I'm forgetting my own moves!

I lose this turn, then, due to the Anaheim False Call Decision's third section, subclause B. This leaves Rowan open for a strategic position, but I won't elaborate because I'm hoping he misses it.
