Four Away Four Away

by Stick
27 March 2012


Recently on my forums it was brought to my attention that I never finished all the scores from 5 away 5 away and in as I had set out to do here for GammonVillage. I was glad it was pointed out even though my final intent wasn't to cover every score I did realize in reviewing that I had left out one major score I should have covered. Other scores yet to be covered may not have enough material to make a good article. I'm going to investigate further the few scores left before next month's article.

So that's what we are going to do this month, cover 4 away 4 away. Going into every game you should have a game plan. When you check the score sheet between games and verify the score with your opponent that should mean a lot more to you than just who is winning or losing. It should signal you to your overall game plan for the next game. Thoughts of gammon values, take points, and game plans should be dancing in your head. So what should Michael Jackson its way through your head going into the 4 away 4 away game? Here are the major things to keep in mind with discussion afterward.

  • The center cube take point.
  • The 2 cube gammon value.
  • The recube take point.
