    I beg to differ, my good man. Please note the position of the semicolon in the fifth line. ;)

    Anyway, Brixton Central would give me three departure points using the self-same Monte Carlo formula that you use to such good effect, so I'd still end up in the same place.

    You may be correct technically, but in practice the only successful way to leave brixton has been with a police escort.

    With a half-cast shadow across a 'White's Tree Frog', this allows me (finally) to shift dimensions (Rule 11 in Gilleys, 1st Impression not bad, could do better) and join in on a tour of hairy motorcycle enthuiasts at Putney Bridge, dressed as Marilyn Monroe.

    Until someone rolls pink, I'm done for.

    I rolled a yellow and the 4th chance card in the deck told me to take The Baker (3rd ed.) to Rileys for a frame, which I subsequently lost and ended up having to sell my Charizard to fathazza just to get to the Post Office (King James version) and avoid losing any more health points.

    I rolled a 20 and purple, while pulling The Fool from the deck (how appropriate). Takes me to Earls Court and picks up a Quad Damage along the way, so I can travel all the way to Upminster on a single throw if I wanted to! However I'll practise restraint and switch at Monument. Shame Quad Damage only lasts one turn...

    After spinning my wine bottle 43.5 degrees I have double staking multipliers which force me to roll again in the form of dice, arriving me at a value of 13, which I believe puts me between door number 12 and 14 of the Dorchester Hotel...poised with a single teleport to Goodge Street should I wish to use it...

    Surely it's not game over, as no-one's mentioned 'you-know-what' yet?

    I'm afraid as it has been over 45 minutes since steveo was meant to play, he forfeits his go (precedent set in 1983 when Tim Brooke-Taylor got stuck in the toilet)

    So I shall now execute my signature move and take us to Cock Fosters.

    And I thank you kind sir, for a six means I can pick up again. I roll a hens tooth which would normally land me in Turnpike Lane. However, after consulting The Marquess's penguin, I can play a dublet which fasttracks me to Kew Gardens. How lovely.

    My die fell out of my pocket and I realised I just rolled my way to Euston Station.
    Considering this game has been silent for over a year I get to invoke the Godstone rule of '34 (that's 1934, not the 1834 Godstone rule :p) which gets me to Regents Park... with an ace up my sleeve (the Ace of hearts) to use at a later date.

    I see this game and my initial starting location roll of 79, which in accordance with the 1962 Prince Albert rules (Revision 14, Subsection Alpha) locates me in Knightsbridge

    I take my D23 and roll a 17, which I will use to draw 3 cards from the deck in my next turn, and also move up to Green Park and change onto the Victoria line.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention...I drew a Triangulation card, along with a Jack card and a Quantum Singularity card
