Mike created a great retro-puzzle (you can see his masterful explanation here) along with a Blue-to-play-32 problem.

Following Mike's lead, I have created a pair of retro-problems. Scroll down for those, and for a couple of Blue-to-play-51 problems.

 White is Player 2 score: 0 pip: 148 Unlimited GameJacoby Beaver pip: 152 score: 0 Blue is Player 1
XGID=-a--B-D-CA--dC-a-d-e----B-:0:0:1:00:0:0:3:0:10

Problem 1
Reach in Four Moves...(Blue, White, Blue, White)

Problem 1 (above): The position above was reached in FOUR moves (two by each player), that were perfectly played according to XGR++ evaluation. Blue moved first. (Blue, White, Blue, White.) What is the move sequence?

Problem 2 (below): Conditions are identical (to Problem 1). What is the move sequence?

If you can figure out either sequence, you are a genius.

Bonus question (two part): How would you play a roll of 51 for Blue in each of the two positions?
