RJSRdg wrote:Here's how it works:

The game is played over a number of rounds. Each round starts off with a different Underground station (first round starts with Acton Town, and so on). Each player has to name an Underground station that begins with the last letter of the previous one, and which hasn't been used before e.g Acton Town > Northfields > South Ealing > Goodge Street, etc. No player may take two consecutive turns in a 24-hour period. So if Fred played "Goodge Street", he would have to wait 24 hours before playing "Tottenham Court Road", by which time George may well have played "Tottenham Hale" instead. However as soon as George has played, Fred is able to play "East Acton" as there has been an intervening move since his last one.
These!

Oh, and it also says ''2) A player plays a station ending in "y" - loses 10 points because there are no stations beginning with "y" with which to continue."
So you've lost.
