Craps also known as crapaud, is a dice game in which the players make decisions on the outcome of the roll, or a series of rolls, of a pair of dice. Players take turns rolling two dice and whoever is throwing the dice is called the “shooter”. Each round has two phases: “come-out” and “point”. Dice are passed to the left, to start a round, the shooter makes one or more “come-out” rolls. The shooter must shoot toward the farther back wall and must hit the farther back wall with both dice. A come-out roll of 2, 3 or 12 is called “craps” or “crapping out” and anyone betting loses. Shooters may keep rolling after crapping out, the dice are only required to be passed if a shooter sevens out (rolls a seven after a point has been scored). A come-out roll of 7 or 11 is a “natural”. The other possible numbers are the point numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. If the shooter rolls one of these numbers on the come-out roll, this makes the “point” – to “pass” or “win”.
