I hear that the Committee of Seven is about to publish a new set of rules for the post-Brexit era. I am taking a last trip to Swiss Cottage to buy myself a duty-free cuckoo clock.

I await with bated breath the announcement of these rules.

I can't find anything in the rulebook that prevents me moving unobtrusively to Bruce Grove and pressing the "exterminate" button.
I've sifted through the rulebook, to remove any lumps. It's actually for a recipe I'm making - to help me get through lockdown, I've started baking bread, but a lack of flour is forcing me to pad this one out with the starchy pages of Stovold's Almanac. Should work the same way, it's all fibre after all.

This is actually a Nigella recipe - for sourdough pesto focaccia. It's quite hard to follow though. Like this step: "add the olive oil to the blender, and toss in the herbs". I did and fell off the worktop.

Nevertheless, there's nothing preventing you from playing Bruce Grove. Luckily, a quick dart westwards to Upminster should thwart your dastardly schemes.

Hmm - hope you didn't damage any vital interests. Obviously you will now need to use Stovold Online, which I believe is hosted on an Amstrad CPC with cassette tape drives in a monastery in Outer Mongolia. Anyway after that I think I need to go to Baker Street, avoiding the focaccia which I believe is now growing up through the tarmac and starting to emit threatening noises.

The law against repeated attempts to leave London is brought into force today. We reset the above move and force ourselves firmly back into SW1A at Westminster. Any further attempts to leave London will result with a landing in nidd.

Leaving London for a holiday is banned under not only the 1603 plague lockdown rules but also the 1834 (revised) rules, so we must move to Edgware.

I mentioned it and no one took notice.
Ahh, pardonne-moi. It may have been an oversight on my part, or on that of our fellow player Un Défi.

In any case, I do believe Waterside is still valid from most of Paris.
