OK, dispute now resolved! Here are the rules in full again so that there's no confusion:

The aim of the game is for the "finders" to find the "hider" by asking a series of yes/no questions. These may relate either to the hider's current location or to his/her previous route. A maximum of two questions in a row per player is permitted. There is no limit to the total number of questions allowed. The winner is the player who correctly identifies the hider's current location.

If a player asks a question before the previous question has been answered, the hider should answer as though it had been asked after that question was answered, even if a move intervenes.


Rules regarding movement:

1) The hider can start at any station on one of the following networks: London Underground, London Overground, DLR, TfL Rail.
2) After each even-numbered question, the hider must make a move of one stop on any of the above networks in any permitted direction (except as under rule 5/6). The hider may not move after odd-numbered questions.
3) The hider can change line only where two lines intersect in the same station, with this defined by Guinness rules, i.e. no switching between:
  • The two Paddingtons, Edgware Roads or Hammersmiths
  • Bank and Monument
  • Shadwell (LO) and Shadwell (DLR)
  • Shepherd's Bush (LO) and Shepherd's Bush (LU)
  • West Hampstead (LO) and West Hampstead (LU)
  • Liverpool Street (LU) and Liverpool Street (LO/TfL Rail)
  • Any marked interchange between two differently named stations
  • Any interchange not shown is between two separate stations (e.g. Canary Wharfs, Eustons etc.)
4) The hider cannot visit the same station twice.
5) If it becomes impossible for the hider to move any more, he/she must say so and remain in the same location for the rest of the game.
6) The hider may choose to come to a halt at any time. If this is the case, he/she must say so and remain in the same location for the rest of the game.
7) Station specific rules:
  • Heathrow Loop is one way only
  • Tottenham Court Road is Northern Line only (temporarily)
  • Tufnell Park is nonexistent (temporarily)

First question then:

Are you at a station on this map? (That's the Orange One's map with all the dead-end branches removed.)

No (Q1 - Not moving)

Why not start on a dead end line?

Good, that's whittled it down quite a lot already then!

Are you on the Underground?

[Also, please could you delete all your earlier posts in the thread so that it's clear what the rules are?]

According to my last move, No (Q3 - Not moving)
