Basic Outline Rules / How to Play

There are two parts to a dice game.

The first part is called the ‘Come Out Roll’, this is indicated by the large round puck on the table layout placed in the ‘Off’ position.

When the puck is in the off position the ‘shooter’ rolls the dice. If they roll a 7, 11 or a 2, 3, 12 then the Pass/Win Line and Don’t Pass/Win Line are paid accordingly.

Any other number rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10) becomes your ‘Point’; this is indicated by the dealer moving the puck to the number rolled which is then flipped over to the ‘On’ position.

The object of the game is then to repeat the number first rolled (the Point) before rolling a 7. If a 7 is rolled before the point is achieved then it is called a ‘7 out’.

This signifies the end of a shooters roll, the dice are then passed to the next shooter. In both cases the puck is returned to the off position and a new game is started on the ‘Come Out Roll’.

Note that 2, 3 and 12 are collectively known as the ‘Craps’ – the American name for the game.
