A GAME OF MORNINGTON CRESCENT. Comedy act in a British nightclub. "I've just discovered a new game. Some blokes are sitting around naming Tube stations and the first person to name Mornington Crescent wins. If you name Mornington Crescent and the next player was planning to name Mornington Crescent, it's a particularly good win." The game is a regular feature on the BBC's I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue, and there is a game in progress at Transport Blog. I'm not sufficiently familiar with the game to suggest that there might be a forced win for the player that names Elephant and Castle, which, these days, is the name of a strip mall, not the pub I was expecting when I stopped off there one evening.
