Ward adjusted pipcount methods:

1) Take pipcount

2) Add 2 for each extra checker

3) Add 2 for each over 2 on ace point

4) Add 1 for each over 3 on deuce point

5) subtract one for each fewer home board points

6) and .5 per extra checker outsite home board

-5, /7 round down

-- 62 --

/10, +1, round up

the leader can redouble if his lead is 2 pips shy of the trailer's point of last take.

Point of last take for the trailer is when he is down a number of pips equal to the number of rolls to go minus 3

Efective Pip Count : 7n + 1
