also called Barbotte, or Barbudi, dice game of Middle Eastern origin, used for gambling; in the United States it is played chiefly by persons of Greek ancestry. The shooter casts two dice. If he throws 33, 55, 66, or 65, he wins; if he throws 11, 22, 44, or 12, he loses. Other combinations are meaningless. A second player, the fader, sets stakes in betting against the shooter and alternates with him in casting the dice. Other players may make side bets on whether the shooter or the fader will win.
