A situation in a game of MC, now a popular variant in its own right, in which the names of two or more stations must be combined. To give an idea for the general feel of the game, moves range from the comparatively simple "Tufnell Bec", "Arselico" and "Great Barking Elephant" to the rather more complex "Seven Kings' Tooting Victorias" or, on one extreme occasion, "James's Wapping Great Canary on the Parson's Horn".

If played within a conventional game of MC, the traditional way of ending a Boardman's round is by playing a station that is valid both under standard MC and Boardman's conditions: for instance, "West Acton", with the West from West Ham and the Acton from East Acton. If the game is being played as a variant in its own right, the most usual winning move is "Mornington-on-the-Hill", though others have been used on occasion.
