 GnuBg - the 'proper cube action' statistic? Hallo all, I have a couple of questions.. I tried to post on the gnubg old nabble message board, but it doesn't look like it's accepting new posts at the moment. Please can anybody explain the 'proper cube action' statistic in GnuBg to me. For example, on the bottom right hand corner of the Gnubg analysis section I saw a figure of 15.2% for a bad No double / Take.

 Eskgammon (d10gammon) For various reasons I haven't been active here for five years or more but I see many of the oldtimers are still here. All the bots made Backgammon a bit boring so some time ago I needed something that would change that. The result can be found below. So far everyone trying it have had a blast (even the most conservative people). Some reasoning and other fun stuff can be found using the link (but quote if you reply to stuff from that one).... more » By Eskimo  - May 13 - 5 new of 5 messages

 bks Wins The Consolation Flight No driving, no beer, no problem. Strictly speaking I tied for victory in the consolation as the hour was getting late and the TD wanted to go home. I was up 6-1, and 8-6 (9pt match) in the main flight and had a won game at 8-8 but lost to four perfect 11 rolls by my opponent as I danced against a two point and a three point... more » By Bradley K.
