Oooh, I like that. But you could have used the Sardine Legislation to get closer, under the 5th Chancellary Rules. Right-o, a Cunningham's Step sideways to Ashtu's Anarchy Annex because under the impetus of Adleway's Nonce, I'm allowed to greeble my baghdad twice before rolling a six.


(also, Ashtu- I don't mind Smile. s'okay! but the map is certainly helpful, thankee Smile considering we're doing this Island-Underground crossover.)

The absolutely, positively, utterly definitive map of the Improbable Island Underground,
including all stops planned, unplanned, real, unreal, imaginary, past, present and future.

That's a pretty good move, Johnson, but I'm going to have to pull a fast one by heading to Ace High via the Travis Bedeau's Northward Jaunt.

Your go.

I get to jump in here, ahead of the player on my right, because I'm dropping a Return to Island Map card. But that's not my turn - my turn is played by salmoning up the southbound Swampview Bikelane, Squat Hole Overlook.

Not so fast. I roll the Battle Die, and execute the French Stride to get onto New Pittsburgh. In accordance with the Texas Hold'em Italian ruleset, I get to draw a card.

Ah! But that is an opportune moment for me to step in, up the ante by one (of course!), and reverse playing order by revealing two aces and an eight. Therefore i am allowed to move as so, and end up in Woolton Bernard.

Next!

Can I use a Haxby Crossover, then, and play a red token to advance three places to the Abandoned Waystation?

Aha, I've been waiting for just that move, Budd. I play the Fate card, allowing me (under the Abridged Australian Doubles Rules of 1620) to leapfrog Budd and Ahab in the total point standings and arrive at Thistlewhite Manor.

As I pass by in my MTA trolley I think I can just manage a retrotime interjection, allowing me to jump the queue, which is fortunate as I'll be halfway to Lechmere by the time my proper turn comes around.

In preparation for a Hibberts gamble, I call out Grand Concourse East.

Oh, I didn't realize we were playing the Pacific Islanders' conventions. Someone should have said. In that case, I bet one fifth of my stake in IPS and select The Free Public Library for the block.

Well, there goes my chance at a decent Wayfarers Gambit, so i'll take a chance-card, which grants me a random uncommon item from the lease stack. Those rocket-powered skeelers can take me all the way to the Test Kitchen

You folks certainly have been busy, but it's pretty obvious that the correct stance to coddle the most skweebles is to veer 'round the back of Soup and Pants and then see which way the forenaughts are centigrading their ungulates- and let the crismanths take you from there.

Ooh, I hope it isn't too late to join this round, as I'd start off with a Circumvent Matriarch through Sloth's kitchen, then stick the landing to finish in a classic Scheindlin stance.

I... oh crap, I can only grooble my duncecap into Sloth's Kitchen as well. Syd, what the hell? You've created a Witherington's Loop! At least I can pick up a red token on the way.

I do a latteral tackle of the Witherington's Loop, landing directly on Go. After collecting 200 req from each player, I pass directly to Crimson Blade.

Now, Raimar, I could've sworn lateral tackles were banned after the famed knurdling of Her Majesty's favorite eggplant in 1312. However, I'll decline the 5-yard penalty in order to position my rook for Romanov's Irrascable Triangle, to bring me to the Warehouse, via the Forecasting Rock.

Aha! A crafty move, G, but alas, I play a quickslide double-frontback to Jardin Surleau, for the block. And, of course, go fish.


Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

Damn! I didn't think anyone had enough pocket change for that one. Well played, sir, and a more gentlemanly move I've not seen since Agassi let Deep Blue win in the Helsinki match of '04.

It being the eve' of the Friday before Canadian Thanksgiving, known as Alrighty Giv'er Friday Eve in some locales (i.e. Canada), I am declared car dealer, snuffle all clannies' cards, and tumble-dry all extant game dice. Redealt and rerolled, I discover I am in a position to shoot the moon, whose reflection off the Ooze Pit I am now in a position to admire.
