Have you ever watched a football game and knew the exact play that the coach was going to call? But your friend thought he knew better? And after the coach calls that play, what are you left with but bragging rights and a fleeting feeling of superiority? Until now, there wasn't a great way to make those bets with your pals while you watched the game. Now...there is BALLCRAPS!
Ballcraps is the game that organizes all the in-game bets that you always wanted to make with your friends. Its design mimics a traditional craps table, where you lay your bets on the table and wait for the shooter to roll the dice, except with Ballcraps, it's the football players making the plays, and you're making the action: the bets and odds are proposed and accepted by you and the people in your living room.
THERE ARE A FEW SIMPLE CONCEPTS TO BALLCRAPS.
A) Every betting chip is equal; the colors are used to distinguish which player made the bet. As bets are won and lost, trade chips to consolidate your color.
B) Odds are determined by the players
C) A bet doesn't count unless another player accepts it
HOW TO BET
1) Put your chips, up to the amount you want to wager, on top of event you're betting on.
2) Put an odds indicator on top of the betting chips -- flip the odds indicator to the stripe to bet against the event.
3) Another person matches your bet
4) When the event happens, the bet is paid to the winner.
You can bet on what's going to happen in the next play, the set of downs, the drive, or the game.
Think they'll run the ball on the next three plays? You can bet on that too.
You can also bet on who will get the next penalty, and what will happen on the next punt.
