Oh Crap!

JB loves playing checkers and has some pretty good strategies for winning. I decided to teach him how to play dominoes in hopes that he could practice critical thinking, planning and basic math skills. I was explaining all of the rules and introducing how points were counted and recorded when he informed me of a similar game that he learned how to play at school.

JB: "This is like the game where you roll the dice and take score. You just put a mark for your points and sometimes you can get skipped."

Me:"Who showed you how to play that game? Did you play it during choice centers?

JB: "R showed me. We played it on toy day when you could bring your favorite toy."

What the...?? Sounds like shooting craps to me! I couldn't decide whether to be ticked off or tickled. I guess I should be glad they weren't waging bets. Oh, wait...I forgot to ask that very important question!

P.S. I thought about this after posting and remembered that Bunko is the new version of Craps. It sounds better, but isn't that big of a difference.
