Great puzzle Nack.
I figured out the following so far:
1) Since the 51 player already has 9 checkers in first 8 points it must be the 21 player making the prime
2) A total of 13 advances must be made by white. The checker on 11 must stay there, checkers on 13 point must end up on 9, 10, 12, 13. A single checker on 8 must move to 7 point.
3) 13 advances implies at least 3 doubles are rolled.
4) At least 2 aces and at least 3 doubles implies that 11 is one of the rolls.
5) 66 would force the 21 player to advance a checker too far.
6) Needing exactly 44 pips with a 11 and no 66 and no repeat implies that 55 is rolled.
7) Not advancing too far with that 55 requires plays of 6/1 and 13/8 and two moving the back men.
