King's Cross is one of the major token sinks on the standard map, along with Aldwych?, Dollis Hill, Hammersmith and Ongar. As such, players will often use it to absorb the effects of a token cascade when they are concerned that their line velocity is insufficient to allow 'safe' use of Dollis Hill.

Of course, after a successful cascade or Septimus Divergence, a simple looped move is unlikely to be a sufficient response; using a token sink to soak up some of the excess tokens is a necessary preliminary move. This unfortunately tends to hand the initiative to the player who caused the cascade. Advanced players who do not intend to use a multi-token strategy prefer to use King's Cross and the other token sinks pre-emptively, thereby stopping large token balances from accumulating in the first place.

Note also that King's Cross is adjacent to the major holding station of Euston.
