Craps: Now and Then

Craps was developed from the original English game called 'Hazard’, and was eventually adapted by the French, who named their version crapaud – also the name from which the word ‘craps’ was derived. Finally, one Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville brought the game to New Orleans, America; the game achieved immense popularity amongst the African-American communities, and ultimately became the game of craps that is recognised the world over today.
