RED is offering the cube, WHITE to take in the situation described .. i clarified that in the question

but that very thought occurred to me during the game, it almost looked like a better cube for me (WHITE) than for rollingfool (RED) .. had it been my turn and the match score different, it looked as if a cube by me was a valid play

yes, but that is only part of the question .. also, let's not give away too much of the answer with replies .. remember, voters can see this before they vote

btw, Tomawaky, thanks for the idea of how to include an image of the board in the question  :shakehands: .. see Cube 103 for an example .. i haven't been able to upload an image of the board yet, but i used your banner
from another post to test the idea .. it's looking as if it may work .. i'll change the link to the board image as soon as i can find a place to put it

:cool: thanks for the very instructive comments, dorbel .. i took the liberty to go in and put your and blitzxz's comments below behind a spoiler button because our intent (well my intent) is to leave them avaialbe as questions ad infinitum for new readers to enjoy as well .. i said i wasn't going to do this (edit other posts), but no changes other than adding the spolier button have been made

the spoiler feature is new and described at problem spoilers

your comments and others are always most welcomed as are problems anyone may like to contribute  :thumbsup:
