A version of the game popular in the 12th-14th Centuries. Chaucer wrote of it in his "Canterbury Tales", the object being to reach Canterbury. The game was played in this form as there was no underground station at Mornington Crescent in the 14th Century, Blackfriars being the closest. Of course, London was much smaller then so Blackfriars was much closer to Mornington Crescent than it is today.
