Ok, after the super aggressive move..there was a flurry of action...

skater rolled 5-1 and moved bar/22*, 6/5*
Herd responded with bar/23, bar/20*
skater now has a couple of choices with this one..so I will let him decide..

What you need to understand is that our hit with the 1 was NOT super aggressive. It was an active, rather than passive, play, made at a time when the risk was comparitively low, designed to slow him down and retard his advance. It appears we've kept him from making key points at very little cost to us. The game is still wide open and we own the cube.

What could be sweeter ?

Can you 'own' a dead cube?

So I'm a little confused now.  Roll 4 for me was 5-1.  Wasn't bar/22*, 6/5* an illegal move?

(On my board I played this as bar/20*, 6/5*...hence my confusion)
