    Shooter

    The Player that rolls the dice.

    Come-Out Roll

    This is any roll before a point is established. It is an attempt to win a Pass Line bet by rolling 7 or 11. Pass Line bets lose if the come-out roll is 2, 3 or 12. After rolling 7, 11, 2, 3 or 12, the Shooter comes out again. If any other number is rolled, a Point is established.

    Point

    This is a number - four, five, six, eight, nine or ten, that the Shooter is trying to roll to win the Pass Line bet.

    Establish a Point

    This is when you roll a Point on the come-out roll.

    Making a Point

    This is when the Shooter re-rolls the Point, once it has been established. Once a Point is established, re-rolling the Point wins, seven loses and any other number does not affect the Pass Line bet.

    Note:
    The Shooter rolls until he makes the Point, or rolls a seven.

    Box Cars

    This is when the Shooter rolls two 6ís.

    Craps Out

    This is when the Shooter rolls a two, three or twelve on the come-out roll.
