Puzzle 1.





White is Player 2

Blue is Player 1
XGID=aB-B-aC-A---dE---d-e----B-:0:0:1:00:0:0:0:0:10
Blue on roll, cube action?

There are several ways to reach this position. The one I like opens with White playing 52S = 24/22, 13/8.

Next, he gets clobbered when Blue rolls 55, playing A (Attack) = 8/3*(2), 6/1*(2).

On the third roll, White enters only one checker, perhaps by rolling 65. Obviously, 53 and 51 would produce the same result.

Another way to reach this position is for White to open 54S = 24/20, 13/8, and then fan on the third roll.

Using Nactation, we have these two solutions:

52S-55A-5
54S-55A-F
