Find a solid, [or concrete floor] and a wall where you can shoot for awhile. Use a towel or blanket to land the dice on. If you can perfect your DI skills on this, you can move up to spending money on the rear table alligator board. Start small, which it seems you are doing.Quote: 90crapsplayer66
I'm fairly new to Craps (6 months) and although I suspect your answer is quite reasonable as far as learning the game, it doesn't help me with learning the "shooter techniques" which I'd use at a regular casino.
Again, thanks for your idea.
Hi Craps Enthusiasts,
For practice, I've rigged up my home version of a craps table by using the cork side (the reverse side) of my wife's table mats. The cork is fairly hard and doesn't allow much bounce, if any. Then I've placed books, stacked about 5 high, around the back as the bumper. These books are also hard and don't give me a realistic bounce. Often the dice just plop down with little movement which I know can be good on occasion for dice setters----but I'm not getting a realistic bounce which I think would be helpful as I practice my dice setting. I suspect the obvious answer is to order a rubber bumper from Amazon, which I will do. But, are there any suggestions from those of you who have made your own Craps table.
Thanks for your insight,
