I don't personally have a throwing station or landing station yet (if that's what it's even called). I have other means of simulating a craps table, but I do not have the back wall. I figure that I can still analyze aspects of my throw before the dice hit the back wall. My question is this: if there were no back wall on a craps table, should my attempts at DI look like backspin and then forward spin, and NOT have any side spin at all? By side spin I mean the way the earth spins, for example. I imagine the successful DI throw without a back wall would have dice having backspin in the air, making contact with the table, and rolling forward until they come to a stop. The dice should also travel the same distance once they have come to a stop, right? This also means that if I start with the hardway set and have the 6s and 1s on the sides, that they should still be on the same sides when the dice stop, yes? Has anybody ever tried this to see if their throw is like this?
