AbstractA method and game board (10) are shown for combining the play of baccarat based upon at least one card deck having fifty-two cards divided into four suites of duces through aces and the play of craps based upon two dice (28) each having six faces numbered one to six. The board presents a semicircular playing arena with a plurality of card indicia or spots (15 and 17) to indicate positions for the dealer to place the respective player and banker cards as they are dealt and a plurality of player areas spaced about the circumference of the circular periphery of said semicircular playing arena. Each of the player areas comprises a rectangular player box (18) for placing a baccarat wager on the player hand (17), a rectangular banker box (20) for placing a baccarat wager on the banker hand (15), and a plurality of craps wager indicator circles (12, 14 and 16) dividing the dice numbers 2 through 12 into a plurality of groups for wagering at different odds for each group. Tie wager indicia (24) are included for offering a baccarat wager in the form of a tie wager to each player whereby the player may wager that the player hand will tie the banker hand. In the event that the player hand ties the banker hand under the rules of baccarat, each player who placed a tie wager is offered the roll of the dice and a craps wager on one of the craps wager circles. Each craps wager is settled based on the outcome of the roll of the dice. In addition, at the beginning of each hand, each player is offered an accumulated pot wager on one or more of the craps wager indicators (12, 14 and 16), which pot wagers arc accumulated without payout until the banker hand ties the player hand with a predetermined combination of cards, whereupon a player is selected to roll the dice from the players who placed an accumulative pot wager.
