17.4.6 CRAPS: GAMBLING WITH DICE
For those with artifact ivory dice, a very simple gambling game may be played called craps. Here's how it works. One person takes the dice. Whoever has the dice is called the shooter. The shooter rolls the dice, with the following results: roll 7 or 11 : win roll 2, 3, or 12 : lose (this is called 'craps') roll anything else : keep rolling! The case where you roll anything else is called 'getting a point.' So if you roll 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, then your point is that number. Keep rolling forever until you roll your point again, or 7. If your point comes up first, you win. If 7 comes up first you lose and, in fact, you crap out. If you win, or if you lose, you always keep the dice and can play again, so to speak, unless you crap out, in which case you must pass the dice to a new shooter. It is customary to place a bet when you are about to roll the dice for the first time, and then for others to bet against you, or to 'take' or 'cover' that bet. When you are about to roll the dice for the first time, or right after you just won or lost, that's called 'coming out.' Examples: coming out: roll a 7. you win! coming out: roll a 2. craps. you lose. coming out: roll a 10. 10 is the point. roll a 3, 11, 7. crap out. you lose. coming out: roll a 4. 4 is the point. roll 5, 6, 2, 11, and 4. You win! Good luck to you all!
