Just in case you don’t like playing the game without understanding it, here are some of the basic terms and gameplay you have to know. Once this things are already embedded on your mind, the rest will just simply follow.
Numbers 7 & 11 = Win
12, 13, & 2 = Lose
Boxman = this is the supervisor who stash all cash in the game
Stickman = the one pushing the dice around the table using a stick, he controls the phase of the game
Dealers = they manage all the bets within the game
Passline = this is where bets are placed when you play with the shooter’s side
Don’t Pass Bar = players who place their bets here are playing against the shooter
Come & Don’t Come = place for bets but can only be used on a later part of the game
Field = this is used for one-roll bets between the numbers 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 12.
Craps = 2, 3, or 12
Yoleven = 11
C & E = 11
Snake Eyes = two 1s (each dice’s result is the number 1)
Boxcars = two number 6
Little Joe = 4
Jimmy Hicks = 6
Skate & donate = 8
Skinny Dugan = loser 7
Center Field = 9 (it is the number on the center of the table)

Natural Winner = numbers 7 or 11 (on come out roll)
Come out roll = the very first roll of the shooter for every game
First thing you have to know when playing craps is the rotation. No one could put a bet anywhere until the shooter puts his bet first.
If the come out roll result is 7 or 11, all bets on the passline won and the don’t pass lose. But if the come out roll result is 2, 3, or 12, all bets on the don’t pass won, and bets on the passline lose – this is called craps. If the shooter rolls other number from the said ones, it becomes a point for every bet on that turn.
This is term used for additional bets. After the shooter rolls out a point, you can place another bet on different place. Like for example, you already placed a bet on the passline, if the roll result is points, you have the opportunity to place an additional bet on the opposite line which is the don’t pass.
Odd bets can be touched anytime. You can decrease, increase, or even remove it anytime you want. Depends on your gut.
