Unlimited Games. How should Blue play 31?
All those who commented got the right idea here.
White has four checkers off so Blue cannot afford to play safe and needs maximum coverage of his 6-pt.
The additional wrinkle is that by playing 13/12 with the ace Blue ensures a return shot if White rolls 66.
The correct move is 14/11, 13/12.
