PUZZLE 1..... Achieve in FOUR rolls

PUZZLE 1: Find a sequence of perfectly played moves that reaches the position above in FOUR rolls. Blue-White-Blue-White.

PUZZLE 2: Find a sequence of perfectly played moves that reaches the position below in FOUR rolls. Again, Blue moves first.

For these puzzles, "perfectly played" means best (no error), according to XGR++ evaluation.

The first puzzle has two solutions, though you need find only one. [An identical play with an alternate roll is not considered different (e.g., 13/7* with 42 is the same as 13/7* with 51).] The second puzzle has one solution.
