Dice Basics

Some players have special grips on the dice. There is the so called tong grip, the lock grip, the 5 finger grip, the 2 finger crab grip and others.

Although they have many names, they all speak of how to handle the dice. Some even go further by pointing the 6 pips in the direction of the table and must have it flat on their palm so that the win is insured. Some prefer to have the one pip facing upward so that when the dice rolls, it would Rolland show the side with 6 pips.

Some players combine their "patented" grips with a controlled arm, hand and shoulder movement to further "seal" the throw. Some even have strict rules to follow when throwing, like the arm must be aligned diagonally with the table for the dice to achieve its full potential. Some players go to great lengths to go through different moves just to win at the game.

Whatever the move is, as long as one has fun on playing and throwing in craps, there should be no problem as far as fun is concerned. If profit is on ones mind, one has to think up new strategies and perhaps invent a new "grip" to go with it.
