Yes I said Yes I take five 8 cubes

........and my opponents were happy and thought I was stupid...... and I was..... I lost 40 points .....8 points each to the captain and four opponents......I was an underdog but still thought it was a take.....I rolled this out on gnu and it confirmed I was correct. Or maybe gnu is wrong? What do you think? Would snowie say different?

I thought had enough equity because I could win three ways 1 - my opponent has entry failure long enough for me to roll lucky threes and sixes to escape. 2 - my opponent enters and breaks the five point prime and I have an easier time escaping 3 - my opponent enters but I escape before he does. I will still have four or five points in front of him (although maybe not for long if I have to break)

In the actual game, my opponent entered but had to break the five pt prime and I had chances to escape but never made it. So much for forty points.

The score (after 0 games) is: Captain + 4 0, Frankie D 0

Move number 6: Captain + 4 on roll, cube decision?

Captain + 4 147
