Again, I'm recusing myself from the cube decision.

Ok, just because I've recused myself doesn't mean that nobody's allowed to say anything.  We've got a split decision - who wants to make a case for their choice?

This might be like playing a chouette with the Marx brothers, but does everybody have to channel Harpo?

unless we have a very strong board, position & lead, tis not the time for shipping cubes methinks.

Erm, actually stog we do have a 15 pip lead (equivalent to nearly two full rolls), a stronger board and a better position. Sixes make our bar, most fives and fours hit loose and even our worst non-dancing numbers, probably 2-1 and 3-1, are playable. If we dance, we won't be facing a recube for a good while yet. I've changed my vote. It's reasonable to wait, but I think this is probably a low end double for us.
