    You've got a point there.

    Just to confirm, we are playing the English language version? The Spanish version has nuances in translation which aren’t quite the same rules.

    I think you'll find that's "matiz" in translation...

    Ok. so from what I understand is that we have two players in NID and the move to WALTHAMSTOW has been allowed because it wasn't material?

    Sorry to moan, but I find it a tad unfair playing Richmond so early in the round, especially if we want Newbies to join in. Not only, have you effectively blocked any chance of Brentwood to Waterloo. [Bummer for anybody who wanted to introduce any 28mm miniatures.] But also, any chance of Sunbury-on-Thames to Liverpool Street is well and truly snookered.

    Madejski’s variations, would (technically) allow for the Master stroke; Reading. (Outside London Underground Zone 1-6, I know). But now that it is official – (... since December 2019) Reading is part of the London Underground and has been put on the iconic map of the Tube. I am sorely tempted to go for it.

    However, I will just have to play it safe for now with Ealing Broadway

    Bloody hell! I walked straight into that one. Where’s Declan Kidney when the 'Phone a Friend' lifeline is needed?

    Leaves me wondering if Reading would have been acceptable under the rules as they stand. I mean the club’s still called London Irish, right? Even, if they are playing away from home, as it were.

    In any case, it’s first in last out, as far as nid is concerned*. So you can’t actually pass Go and mustn’t collect £200 until belladonna is first released. Surely? [*Or technically last in, first out.] Someone has left an assassination team outside the gaol, so I am not sure he will be too keen on getting out of there all that quickly.

    If the rule makers could hurry up and take a decision on belladonna getting out of Nidd, or not. And decide about any subsequent embuscade by 28mm scale miniatures, while you are at it. I m not sure the urban terrain allows for it, to be honest.

    I play Elephant & Castle terminus (Bakerloo line), which will allow other players to change to the Northern line, just in case the escalator is still broken.
