Doubling is a great part of the game. If you develop a solid position, double to prevent lucky rolling and win.

Why do people double at the very beginning of the game? It gives the doubling cube to the other person and prevents your strategic use of the cube later. They are just relying on luck. It doesn't make sense but I appreciate it. They give me the opportunity to later double to 4 when I develop a strong position.

SMH.

I agree, doubling at the beginning of the game gives an advantage to your opponent.

I agree. Players give me the advantage by early doubling.

You click the doubling cube to accept the double, you click resign to accept the loss.
