Stickman in Craps

Craps is a very popular casino game; it can be played with one or more players. The game is played when each player takes a turn rolling two dice at once. The player with the dice is called the shooter. The game is played in rounds and the very first roll of each new round is called a come out roll. If the shooter throws a 7, 11, 2, 3 or 12 on the come out roll then the round ends and the shooter must roll another come out roll. The result of a 2, 3 or 12 is called craps while a 7 or 11 is a win or a natural. When the shooter rolls any of the other numbers they are called point, if a point is thrown then the shooter will re-roll the dice until a 7 is rolled or the point is rolled again.
