As a Yank, I'm at a distinct disadvantage here. My only exposure with this is from an uncle's, er . . . longtime companion who was a master player. He used to get us playing Acacia Avenue, but I'm sure this group is far too advanced for that. As he grew older, he grew funnier, and used to yell, "no inverse crossings!" at us when we cut across his backyard. Alas, he is no more, as he was fatally stung by a mating platypus while "on holiday down under" as he had put it. However, he willed me his battered (and rather smelly) copy of the annotated Finsbury rules, so I hope you will allow this variation in play.

In his honor, I'm going to make an obverse play and say --Vauxhall.
