I'll go and check again, but if I've understood everything correctly I believe you must have been at Finchley Road before your last move.

Well I've checked carefully, and as far I can see your only possible route for the first four moves is:

Canons Park :arrow: Queensbury :arrow: Kingsbury :arrow: Wembley Park :arrow: Finchley Road

Which means you're currently either at West Hampstead (unlikely) or at Baker Street. But maybe someone else can spot something that I haven't.

Well I'm not getting this at all, sorry. At Q7/8 you said you were at a station on the Jubilee line within one stop of Wembley Park - i.e. Kingsbury, Wembley Park or Neasden.

At Q9/10 you said you were at an interchange between two Underground lines which wasn't Wembley Park. The only conceivable option is that you were at Wembley Park for Q7/8, and Finchley Road for Q9/10. There is no way of moving within a single stop from either Kingsbury or Neasden to an interchange that isn't Wembley Park. Therefore you must have moved from Wembley Park, and the only adjacent interchange is Finchley Road.

Do other players agree with me?

No, he said he was on the Jubilee Line, and also that he was within one stop of Wembley Park. Finchley Road fulfils both categories correctly, and thus he could now be at Baker Street (and most probably is).

For the first four moves I have the routes:

Canons Park -> Queensbury -> Kingsbury -> Wembley Park -> Finchley Road
Queensbury -> Kingsbury -> Wembley Park -> Finchley Road -> Baker Street

My question (before you asked about Wembley Park) was going to be "Are you at Baker Street", because I figured if he was there, I'd better head him off before gets a chance to escape in one of 6 different directions. Of course, now he's probably in Zone 1 and could be at a total of 8 possible locations, a number that is only able to rise.

So, now we've probably lost him, my next question is "Are you at an interchange between two London Underground Lines (my definition of interchange in this game is a station that either has more than two adjacent stations, or is Ealing Broadway, Upminster or Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 - so no to Great Portland Street, but yes to Edgware Road)?"

Oh damn, yes! It should have been "Are you within one stop of Wembley Park on the Jubilee Line?" Sorry. Over to you...

In case of confusion, I'll repeat The Orange One's latest question (Q12):
Are you at an interchange between two London Underground Lines (my definition of interchange in this game is a station that has more than two adjacent stations - so no to Great Portland Street, but yes to Edgware Road)?

Are you at Green Park?

I know there's a lot of stations he could be at, but if he is here we'd better not let him move in up to five different directions!
