Ladder

This game is played with two conventional dice.  Players score the difference between the dice, which is referred to as the point. The player’s objective is to move up a ladder by scoring points and to exactly reach the top before scoring a point of 0 (i.e. a double 1, double 2 etc).

The player throwing the dice is called the shooter (as in Craps), and the shooter can decide where to start on the ladder.  All players can bet whether the shooter will win (reach the top of the ladder) or lose (throw a point of 0).

Players may only place a bet at the current ladder position, and the odds on that bet are fixed. The returns to a $10 bet are shown next to the bet button.  Each click of a bet button wagers an additional $10.  On a physical table, this would be equivalent to placing a $10 chip on the layout.

The game is as fast as craps but the rules are simpler. The game could also be configured to bet on single throw propositions, such as betting on the next point (0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5)
