I therefore attempt to avoid the Prussians by bouncing along to Regent's Street


Ooooh Regent Street. Nicely played. *tips hat*

Especially well done as I have been spun around thrice deosil by a cadre of witches accompanying the Prussian soldiers I leapfrogged earlier.
I now find myself in nip and exiled to North Harrow for two rounds :(

I thank you.

Now, going thrice around the circle bound, I find myself spinning off to land at West Croydon

God help me. I'm not sure which one of us has it worst...

By flinging an 1895 gold sovereign at some random bloke in the ticket office I find myself forcibly ejected from the station onto the first train out the platform.  Which sadly for me is a nonstop service right through to Chesham

Bugger. 
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

After being chased 'aboard' a passing train by a group of locals. I find myself falling off at Clapping Junction

Those fluffers clearly aren't doing their jobs. I'm just waiting for someone else to make their move, while I wait for the right train.

You just forced my hand. Professor Wychlock is declared accidental winner. Your turn to select the ruleset and chair a rubber.

Prof Thadeus Q. Wychlock

Good heavens !!!

Well ..... er ....... count my gast as suitably flabbered !

I supposed that would make me Chairthing for this next round.

As such I nominate the 1903 ruleset but utilising the back back double back variant of the type D subset.
(as per Albert Ramsbottom's groundbreaking game of 1913)

The game is open gentlemen. Make your first moves !!!

An excellent choice there. 

My opening gambit, yes, why not, I've not been there yet.... Whitechapel

I'll try my luck at Frumpton's Opening. Seven Sisters it is.

Prof Thadeus Q. Wychlock

I shall play to only possible counter to Frumpton's Opening with the Gosberton Gambit ........ Alperton

Now I've been away for a while, however I must say that we should invoke the Metropolitian ruling of 1908 that makes the next stop Chalfont and Latymer

I believe that allows us to leave the Tube and proceed to, say, Gerrards Cross

I roll the dice Every Which Way But Loose and find myself landing at Charring Cross

Ah, not the Gosberton gambit! I'll spend this turn in a pub, trying to find my next turn at the bottom of a pint of ale.

Meanwhile I make haste to Euston Square.
