mornington crescent variations

< a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z index >


tetzel’s nomination
A simple game in which all moves containing peoples names count double.

thornton’s controversial 3rd amendment
Teams should be alert to the obvious trap when Crosshatching. All stations can be Trumped - even out of Kilter.

timed mornington crescent
Each move must be completed within a prescribed time limit. Any player who exceeds the time limit will be penalised, and as a concession to new players, Rule 2 is suspended.

tobermory’s stratagem
Players can rush the opponent by calling the same destination immediately after them - the Cross Blocker - and then sending them to the nearest free base, usually Ongar, from where they cannot expect to make a winning strike in less than four moves. King’s Cross is wild.

toksvig’s protocol
Deceptive play is of the essence. Listen out for the Reverse Dummy and the Blocker’s Feint. The emphasis is on team play, and discreet non-verbal signals are allowable between members of the same team.

toon rules
Obviously as a RADA trained actor the Chairman will be speaking in the local vernacular, the rest of you just try your best. In this version St. James Park, Newcastle Castle, and Grey’s Monument are out of bounds, but there is nowt wrong with the Swing Bridge or Chinatown.

trivia mornington crescent
This is played more or less to Mortimer’s 1952 Variation (Original) but without the huffing.

trumpington’s variation
This is a refined, highly cerebral, variation preferred by intellectuals but played none the less. It results in a defensive game where players must take care not to become Blocked, Boxed, or Cornered.

tudor court rules
As many will know this was the version of the game formally adopted by Henry VIII, and one which Shakespeare himself is likely to have played. Obviously the playing area was considerably smaller than today and many streets were out of bounds due to the plague, but it is basically the same as the modern game. According to the popular Arden edition of the Tudor Court Rulebook - At the passing of the cod piece, tis the holder who may nominate, except when out of Croop.
