## Understand it yet?

A basic understanding of fundamentals of the game of Craps should be understood by now, if not go back or try this easy little game below to practice the fundamentals.

#### a basic simple game of craps.

The game of Craps can be played by rolling two dice and:

- counting a win with a roll of 7 or 11.
- counting a loss with a roll of 2, 3, or 12

If a 4, 5, 6,8, 9, or 10 is rolled, then that is the *point*.

If the *point* is rolled again before a 7, count that as two wins. Now roll again to find another *point* or a 7 or 11.

If a 7 comes up before the *point*, it is another loss — trust me you will have more losses than wins.

#### a basic extended game of craps.

To extend the game further, take six small pieces of paper and write a 4 on one, a 5 on the next, and so forth. This will help in remembering which numbers have been rolled.

Take the simple game above but after a *point* has been established, keep track of the other numbers that come up before the *point* or a 7 is rolled.

- If a 4, 5, 6,8, 9, or 10 is rolled, not counting the
*point*as it is a winner already, turn over the piece of paper with that number facing up. Now roll that number or the*point*again before a 7, if it does come up, count it as two wins, just like rolling the point. then turn the paper over. There may be a time when all pieces of paper are turned over. - Again, a 7 is a loss for the point and any other number that did not come up—these also count as losses. If two other numbers plus the
*point*did not come up before a 7, then that is 3 losses to count. - If whilst trying to roll the point again and a 2, 3, 11, or 12 come up, ignore them for now—they will be added to the next little game.
