Welcome to the

H2G2 Mornington Crescent Appreciation Society

The Hackney Cab Precedent of 1843

This society is dedicated to the peacefull pursuit of Mornington Crescent here to be known as The Game. A game whose roots can be traced to pre Roman times. The society welcomes new members but in order to become a member, the applicant must observe the rules of conduct and must have a clear understanding of the rules of the game.

Rules of Conduct

    You don't talk about Mornington Crescent. The rules are very complex and subject to addition at very little notice. If you try to give a quick run down, you're only going to confuse people.

    You will not play Mornington Crescent for money. Those of us who understand the rules of this game will also understand why this rule is critical to avoid unexepected outbreaks of stropps, eggs, humps and of course jail.

    You will conduct yourself in an orderly manner whilst playing the game. There is nothing worse than a disorderly Mornington Crescent player (See the Rushton / Garden incident of 1976).
