Hi Webbo - I'd love to know what was the first post on this forum, when it started, and what the subject was. At a guess, I'd say the parking scheme ?

I moved back to Lewes in 2006 and got my first lappy.
When I found this forum and went through the archives there were a lot of threads about Mornington Crescent which I couldn't access.
Was it some sort of game?

Yes Mornington Crescent took on a life of its own. It used to be on Radio 4, just a load of old gibberish as far as I could make out.

Mornington Crescent is a game with very specific rules that can be found by googling - I can't remember them now. It's all about the London tube. Simple but fun, especially when people try to join in who don't know the rules

Mornington Crescent was a game on the Radio 4 show I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. Contrary to what BB says, there are no rules and that's what the joke is. It's complete nonsense masquerading as a real game. Everyone takes it in turn to name tube stations with the winner being whoever says Mornington Crescent but like I say, it's complete nonsense and made up as you go along. Very funny though.

Ed - thanks for spoiling the joke - I was trying to lead a few astray ! I love the fact that if you google rules of Morning ton Crescent online you never actually find any!!!
