Real life, apparently...

That was surprisingly funny. I love the line about still being down.

That "Don't Pass Bar" instead of "Don't Pass (bar the twelve)" is a common mistake and many craps books and craps pamphlets or instruction sets make this annoying error.

I wonder why layout manufacturers and/or casinos cannot just adopt the use of a comma for the DP and DC - "Don't Pass, Bar 12". Or a colon/semi-colon, whichever is grammatically appropriate. Or perhaps call it the Don't Pass Line. It would then make sense when dealers say that you need a "line bet" if you want to shoot the dice. It would crack me up to hear people to continue to make the mistake after that... "So, what's the Don't Pass Line Bar?"

Space, size of lettering ... and international sales are better if its a depiction of two sixes than if its the Arabic numerals "12".

By the way, do you what dice dealers are trained to do when some sweet young thing mentions that the 6 and the 9 are in words rather than numbers? Feign surprise and say "Gee, I never noticed that before".

I think its Reno wherein most layouts are Bar the two for Don't pass.

Though one dealer at Terribles has the right idea. He took a razor blade and scraped off all the lettering on the Don'tCome box.

I didn't mean to imply that the 12 should be written in numerals as opposed to showing pictures of the dice. I was simply emphasizing the need for punctuation.

I'm a little slow... what did scraping the DC lettering achieve?
