Gaming Goes Underground

Bryant and May, London

The immortal game of ‘Mornington Crescent’ (an essential element in an upcoming adventure for Bryant & May) has always been played verbally (although I believe tachiographs are permitted when the game is actually played on any tube platform deeper than 70ft). But finally it is to be made available as a board game.
As most of you know, the rulebook (1953 edition) must be purchased separately under plain cover, but is worth the investment, as it includes the Aldwych Station Offside Rule.
And if anyone from outside the UK is puzzled by this post, Google it!

    I’m only playing if main line stations are wild.

    Last I checked, the only one which is ‘wild’ is the “Easter Egg” station located roughly below BBC’s Broadcasting House. The station’s actual existence (usually referred to as “John Snagg Station”) has been continually denied by all those involved, yet has continually been noted in the Rule Book since long before the definitive 1953 edition as being between the Regent’s Park and Oxford Circus stations on the Bakerloo Line (that’s the brown one on the map; that way it doesn’t show the dirt as much).

    Is this what they call on line gaming?

  4. David Read says:

    The 1953 edition was of course by Angus Prune, conceived whislt he was sitting in his bath.
