It is widely believed that the basic idea for the modern version of Mornington Crescent first occurred to a player of the Eton Wall Game, while his head was being repeatedly banged against the wall by an opponent. Certainly the spirit of the Eton game, which for the last 113 years has always ended in a goalless draw, has much in common with that of MC. (See also Berlin Wall Game).
