Love craps! If you're ever in Stephenville, TX, The Hard Eight has GREAT BBQ.
Dealer, I'll take midnight for a nickel!
Quoting: Hard Eight

Midnight is a pair of 6's? I am so confused. I'd like to walk up and make a bet some time and not feel like a fool. I don't care if I win or not, I just want to understand the damn bet!

12 (boxcars, midnight, or cornrows): Wins if shooter rolls a 12. [link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

There must be 100's of bets on a craps table. I keep it simple with come bets with single, double or triple odds on top and avoid the proposition bets.
For beginners,place bet on the pass line for the come out roll. After a number has been established, place at least single or double odds(up to posted limit) behind your pass line bet. Ex: \$5 on pass line. 10 rolls, so shooter must roll a 10 to win before they roll a 7. Place odds behind your pass line bet. Odds on the 10 pay 2 to 1. So \$10 odds placed behind the line will pay you \$20 and they match your chips on the pass line 1 to 1. In this example you bet \$15(\$5pass & \$10odds) and get it back PLUS \$25 in winnings.
Come bets work the same way but are placed AFTER a point has been established. EX: A shooter has established an 8. You walk up and place bet in the come. Shooter then rolls a 4. Your come bet is moved to the 4 and you place "free odds" on top. Odds pay 2 to 1 on the 4. You get 2 chips back for every 1 placed PLUS they match original come bet if shooter rolls a 4 before they roll a 7.
Simple, huh?
