Because I'm currently located at my student society I am allowed to make a free move to Heatrow airport.

I challenge! The student society legislature is voided if the person is deemed too drunk to spell...

So where are you going then? Xeryus is safely in Nid.

The level of intoxication is only applicable if between 3 o'clock in the afternoon and 7 o'clock in the morning according to exception 3b of the student rules.

Fine. From Heathrow I use the Boris' Magical Solution To Aviation Undercapacity statute (2010) and find myself in the Thames estuary. Luckily the oversized aquatic mammals appendix comes to my assistance as a friendly whale rescues me from my drowning plight and deposits me at Shoeburyness.

I make my way to Felixstowe after getting stuck in a container in relation to the 2001 Comtainerisation act.

I move past three stations (via the I-need-to-get-as-far-away-from-here-as-possible ruling of 1999) from Felixstowe to Ipswich. Once there said ruling forces me to consume a rather bland sandwich while avoiding Harry Potter puns.

Would crosshatching be permitted? If so I will be delighted to move to Great Yarmouth.

Now, Dave, don't know that cross-hatching is banned in all 57 US states?

Can't do that because we're playing Piccadilly Variations. We can only travel on the Piccadilly Line and you're too tight to travel in the morning peak.

Nid.

So - Mill Hill East for pointless branches as per the 1878 rule.

London Bridge, using the Northern line principle "Less is even Lesser" of 1106AD.

Great move. I didn't see that coming - superb veil by going down the Charing Cross branch and back up from Kennington.

I'm reeling a bit here... Might have to head off to Stanmore to cry a bit.

I use the Fried Chicken Convention of 1997. Only stations within a 500m range of a Chicken Cottage are now in play. Onwards, to Colindale.

Ooooh. Waterloo then! Northern Line rules!

Using the Chicken Cottage rule, Purley (London Z6) is the next station stop.

According to the Owen Rudge book "Unpopular Transportation Vernacular in Mornington Crescent", the phrase "station stop" is banned in Mornington Crescent, so that invalidates the last move and puts you in nid.

So let's go back to Waterloo, and then on to Paris Nord, using the Old Routes Count method, first used in the 1974 Golders Green Meeting of Odd Men.

Paris Nord you say? Using the free local ticket allowance established in the JR Rules of 1946 and forcibly signed by under the administration of Amtrak, I extend that to Paris Est and then make my move to Strasbourg.

Not possible, you see, the free local ticket allowance was only applicable between 1946 and 2002. It was replaced in the convention of the regular rail accords summit Toronto with the 2002-Metro fee. You can only extend to Reims. I take it from there to Innsbruck Hauptbahnhof.

Innsbruck! A superb move. Let's go to Copenhagen then!
