A different interpretation of Mornington Crescent, this one having an actual board - a Tube map - and counters which are moved around on it.

Special Rules

The Board

This deck requires a board - a London Underground map. Any map will do, so long as you have some way of placing counters on it to represent players and line disruptions. Each Player needs a piece to represent themselves, and you'll need maybe half a dozen "block" counters, as well as three or four miscellaneous counters for other station markers.

Opening Moves

Before the game starts (before, significantly, opening hands are drawn), each player - proceeding clockwise - chooses a Station to start at (other than Mornington Crescent), and places their piece on that Station.

Turn Structure

Rules are then as for standard Dvorak, except that Players may play any number of Things and Actions per turn, as befits the complexity of the game. In addition, the "Play" phase of each turn gains an extra aspect - the "Move".

The Move

A Player's Move may be made before or after any Actions or Things are played (you may play an Action, make your Move, and then play another Action, for example), and consists of the Player moving their piece up to three Stations along a line. A Player may not change lines during their Move, but if they end their Move at an Interchange Station, they can Move off along a different line during their next Turn.

Blocked Stations

Stations may become Blocked - if a Station is Blocked, a piece may not enter it during a Move. (It is allowed to leave, however, if it was there when the Station became Blocked.)

Mornington Crescent

Mornington Crescent is considered to be Blocked until a card is played to unblock it. When a Player finishes their Turn at Mornington Crescent, they win the game.
