The vortex is strong in this game. Escape from the dark force we must.

On the other hand, because we're only two moves from spoon, KINGS CROSS ST PANCRAS.

But such a move puts us into angry moods, which compels me to move to CROSSHARBOUR

Wow, the Mornington Cresent points total is getting huge. The correct call total now stands at 3,435,973,837 give or take the Dollis Hill penalties.

But all I can see know is DOLLIS HILL

Such changing winds, such changing karma. All in all, I can only move to DOLLIS HILL.

3,435,973,837 points you say?

That's exactly the number you need to perform a split inverse reversal on the Circle line!

No, not Kew!! You've now opened up the Stovold International Gateway, which will result in me going to ODÉON.

Kew was indeed a disaster of a move and with Stovold now open I am forced to go to

Ouch, the odd platform arrangement means we must go to GANTS HILL to avoid the infamous Twistleton Platform Loop (which we all know was proven in the 1982 Ongar Papers).
