    CRAPS.....Tomorrow a few days at the casino ( Italian for 'little house ' ) for some gaming and nice meals. My primary game is craps, the best game in the house.........To spice up the game, the stick will make some calls on the numbers that show on the dice, here are a few :..............." "two bad boys from Illinois," ....... "acey-deucy Ricky and Lucy," ......." "little Joe from Kokomo," ....... "little Phoebe," ....... "easy six is good, hard six is better"...... "five two, you're all through," ........"six ace, end of the race,"......."cinco dos,adios"........"eighter from Decatur," ......." "Nina from Pasadena,"........ "What shot Jesse James? A forty-five,"...... "Nine, nine.just like mine," ............."puppy paws," ........"pair of sunflowers," ......"the big one on the end," ....."10 the hard way, ladies delight!" ....." "the throat tickler,"...... "Big ten, ladies' best friend," ......"tallest point in the joint".....Yolanda..... "yo Levine the dancing queen, she's six foot five and takes no jive," ......."boxcars," ..."atomic craps,"..... "all the spots we got," ...... "second biggest pair on the table,"...... "smoke the line, toke the don't,"...... "Big daddy in the rice paddy"....


    Craps is a great game but a tough game to win at......"The facination of danger is at the bottom of all great passions. There is no fullness of pleasure unless the precipice is near. It is the mingling of terror and delight that intoxicates. And what is more terrifying than play ?."

    Craps builds character....." If you can make one heap of all your winnings, and risk it on one turn of pitch and toss and lose and start at your beginnings......Then you're a man my son."

    Here is a great craps scene by a recently deceased actor that give you a flavor of this game.....



    Good luck at the tables.

    Don't forget the non roll calls, and admonishments from the stick also.....they are sometimes very colorful as well. :)

    And on rare occasion, you find a table where the crew is operating like a well oiled machine......bet placements, payouts, calls, refereeing, umpiring, and even cheer leading....if you are tipping well.

    When that happens, you pay your entry fee, and climb aboard for a ride on the "Coaster"....like you say, a truly great game!

    too tall to call!

    no good! it's in the wood

    there is no number...she's in the lumber

    we can't read 'er...she's in the cedar

    no cash!...she's on the ash

    no roll! no juice...she's on the spruce

    this won't make that nine....it's in the pines

    ------after some months of this nonsense, the boys tried to out-do themselves & started to stretch it a bit to say the least-----:​

    o! not popular...it's on the poplar

    no roll! no victory...she's in the hickory

    pretty weak! it's on the teak

    no num! no num! she's' on the sweet gum!

    no roll! no roll! we're in the lurch...it's on the birch

    -----this schtick kept up for about 6 months at the local joint a while back...Sure. it started to get a bit "out there", lame even...but many still found it hilarious for the effort-----

    Always enjoy the color in your reports BTL.

    Dying for a good laugh - tell us again about the DI's you have seen - you know, your description of their 40 minute rolls? LMAO
