Galactic Mornington Crescent – A Brief History of Mine

I have just started a game of Galactic Mornington Crescent on Twitter under #GalacticMorningtonCrescent.

The origins of this variant of everyone’s favourite parlour game are steeped in myth, but it is suggested that during a normal game (Rules here), on BBC Radio 4’s “I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue” Graeme Garden muttered something like “Pollux”, after Tim Brooke-Taylor flanged to High Holborn, ushering in a whole new era of Galactic possibilities.

Later, Sir Patrick Moore introduced his “monocled variant” on the galactic variant which allows the use of planets – with extra points for shouting “MARS !” during widdershins. Known as Moore’s Monocled Variant.

It was noted by Professor Brian Cox that this resembled the quantum ability for sub-atomic particles to simultaneously visit every part of the Universe simultaneously at the same time, but that it should be restricted to fermions only, i.e. 1/2 spin. This is known as Cox’s 1/2 Spin Rule.

The game must be completed before everything is reduced to Hawking Radiation (Happy 70th Birthday St. Stephen, by the way)
