# There's no 'knip' cards
and where is the 'spoon' counter?

# If you recall those are only available...
in the non association games, this is an official set so spoon and knip are replaced

# ahhh, the Heathcliff-Barrington variation
I'm assuming double 7's mean the diagonal play extends only to the embankment then?

# unless two or more players are in Dingle
or Double Card Dingle.

(I know it's obvious, but I always feel it's best to state these things fully)

# well of course
but we all have our own MC card deck these days don't we? I don't think there is any need to lumber us all by including another set

# Not quite
If you recall this is the 1932 championship edition with the Nerivsky modifcations around London Bridge and Archway to prevent jumping and cross ply-overs. I feel it's the most traditional mode, before Oysterifcation was introduced.

# I believe Dave the Hat and I tried that in our 4th round heat at the East of England Armitage Shanks Charity Bowl finals
however, he knipped me in the embankment, and I proudly kicked him in Cock Fosters with a double parallel diagonal which made him Kings Cross.

# I always try to get off before cockfosters
Prevents those tricky parental complications if you extend the game to Maidenhead......

# My friend Samantha is a keen birdwatcher
and recently discovered that her garden is home to a pair of rare british birds.

I was overjoyed when she invited me to bring my binoculars around to have a gander at her great tits.

# haha! great
there really aren't as many rules as people make out. unless you get a double hammersmith and you're wearing a tie, anyway

# thats the bueaty of the game
There are less than 16 volumes of rules with this version. Well unless you want to enforce the "das Riech" variations put forward by Pottersby and Von Klint in 1964 and then it's a whole new board game.

# This is the best post ever.
Although your set doesn't seem to include the Geneva ruleset train-hammer?

# it's the the 1932 championship edition remember
The train hammer ruleset was introduced for the tri-annual UK-France-Germany exhbition league. Which was bizarrely cancelled in May 1940 to some great annoyance if i recall.

# Winterbotham-St John?
That was thrown out in 1946 following that whole triple Queensway under a gibbous moon loophole.

Fucking amateurs.

Wasn't that replaced with the Paddington-reversal gambit in '53? I know it made the rules simpler after that.
