I thought I might stop and ask, I have no idea if this is a good time, but it lets skater see how it works if nothing else  ;)

Oh, and remember, your home board is now top right, so NIHI can understand what is going on.... ;)

Why do you keep switching direction?   I don't mind so much looking at the board from the "wrong" side, but when the direction of play switches back and forth every other roll I can't follow what's going on.  Could you please choose a direction and stick with it?

Oh.  Now I see.  The Herd is now blue and our homeboard is bottom right.  Skater is now white and his homeboard is upper right. 

BTW, I like it this way, so thanks for changing it, even if it did cause a few minutes of head scratching.

Yes I see the new board orientation.  If you were to make this move you will get the cube.
