Gonna open with a bold move:
Chancery Lane to St. Paul’s
It’s pretty lousy, but at least I get three white mana and some secrets...

not at all! that's why I went with 2011 East for this game, because it's especially easy for players to drop into the game at any point and remain relatively at parity with the other players. many rulesets allow for players to join partway through the game, but 2011 East is explicitly designed such that players who weren't in the game can catch up. obviously, the flow of the game will depend on the choices other players have made, but generally any tactically sound play will result in a gamestate that allows folks to join in partway through without any hassle.

Invisibility, I've gathered mypersonal information into an Express Packet, which should arrive at whichever station you're at in 3-5 business days. I figured someone would pull that ploy pretty early, but I wasn't expecting it from you if I'm being honest. tbh, I don't know how much info you'll gain -- it should be pretty apparent to anyone who's been following the game what card I played with my Missy Elliott Maneuver.

Oxford Circus to Paddington -- I collect the Kind and Polite bonus.

I am very jealous of your ability to earn that Kind and Polite bonus so early, I've never seen anybody pull it off so well before. It might have helped if I remembered to impliment the counter of delayed train, but since I didn't, I guess I'll just play it anyway

Even though all it end up doing is forcing my own move into the simple
South Kensington to Hyde Park Corner
It'll all end in tears, it probably already has.

yes, but the only box you're required to fill out is the backstory

You probably won't believe it, but the answer is 5!

I always liked ramp strategy :P

I move from Oxford Circus to Picnic Bar.

Not only does this earn me thirty-two orcs and a croissant, I have performed a double whammy for Revitalizing the Thread. This not only means I get that Express Packet xyzzy sent, but because someone is at Hyde Park Corner, I also obtain a Banana.

So xyzzy, you've backed yourself into a corner now. The only logical move from Paddington is to Notting Hill Gate, where you could collect the necessary Stamina to head to Embankment, giving you the win on the following turn.

However, under the 2011 East rules, I could intercept you at Notting Hill Gate on my very first turn, so that while you would get your Stamina, you would sacrifice your Kind and Polite bonus to me, so you would never be capable of the winning move from Embankment to Mornington Crescent.

So I start at West Kensington and move to Notting Hill Gate, which will either force you to make the trade I just discussed, or make the subpar move to Baker Street. Additionally, in doing so, I pass Go and collect $200
