Cuthbert's Gambit? very clever, but you're forgetting the new night tube ruleset. Annex 17b of the Rothchild rulebook clearly allows me to cut-off your Northern Line escape with a double Oyster around the Circle line bisected by a Sunday Closure on the Central Line. Landing myself neatly on Marble Arch.

As you will notice from reading Stovaltt, or watching '24', bad things happen to people who mumble.

Therefore, Westminster, aka Trump Square.

Mind if I join? I have a limited edition character card of Stephen Hawking, which means I can only enter stations with wheelchair access but I can see 12 moves in advance.

Post Brexit I am able to descend all the way down the lateral to Waterloo, but I have to pay for the ticket in Euros as the pound is worth exactly 1.000001 x bugger all.

I knew you would do that. Let's step back a bit before you gain any noticeable advantage.

Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do against the next move.

Thank you for the opportunity.

I'll cross the road to Buckingham Palace, thereby collecting the royalty bonus card. :)

Have you fine chaps forgotten the '98 Oxoar Exception automatically invoked under the six-month rule? Your game has been ongoing since last August and it's been over a month since the last move. I place six blue tokens on Barbican which enables me to put the bridges high and occupy Wapping, putting me at MC in 1.

Too bad you announced your attempted winning move - now I can see what you're doing, and block it with Hammersmith.
