Any game that uses at least two dice rolled per player turn could probably be used with a doubling cube(so yes, I think?), as the doubling cube is used for scoring points over multiple games (so I guess you could use a doubling cube with a Monopoly marathon, which would be an unpleasurable experience, lol).

I'm not sure why "at least two dice rolled per player turn" would be necessary...? I think that any game at all (including games of no chance, e.g. Chess or Go) could be played with a doubling cube (to make a victory potentially worth double in some meta framework). It's simply saying "I think I'm going to win; do you agree, or are you willing to risk losing more to prove me wrong?"

Sure it can. Fairly obvious yes. But - why? Whats the point unless you're playing where number of games won is relevant.

Personally I dont see how a doubling cube for Tatsu adds anything to the game.

I don't see why not. I think it's a good option if you want to play a series of games. It might help push some of the more one-sided games toward a conclusion although I don't think those will happen as often as in Backgammon.
