Crikey - that's an unorthodox move. Is it even allowed?

I suppose I'll have to use the cross-track stitching rule and go for Canary Wharf.

Does the fabled Marble Arch Somersault actually exist?

From Wikipedia:

Quote
...In The Guardian dated 6 September 2008, Bunny May, a contributor to the letters page, claims that he (along with John Junkin and David Clime) invented the game in 1970, in an actors' club on Shaftesbury Avenue called Gerry's, in order to infuriate and bemuse patrons whom they found boring or boorish.

So it's done its job already, on this very thread.

All very well Grennie, but the 1970s ruleset was a very different game for a very different time.  Nowadays the whole thing is wide open, why is why you can make cunning plays like...

...Camden Town!

Hah, I'd like to see them try that in Gerry's of Shaftesbury Avenue.
