I assume you're supposed to roll a single die on the alternate turns and just move one of your pieces as described for the first turn. Though that's not explicitly stated, I think it's a reasonable interpretation. The other possible option, skipping alternate turns, would have everyone skip a turn at the same time, which would have the same effect as nobody skipping a turn. :)

I read it that way at first, too, but I think he meant "other" as in "not first" as opposed to "alternating". So on your first turn, you roll one die and move your own piece. On every turn after that, you roll two dice and use one for you and one for another player.

A request for clarification from Bryan, because I've played too many games with different colored dice: do you roll the two dice and then choose which roll applies to you and which to an opponent, or do you have to designate beforehand (white die for me, red die for them)?
