  1. Threes

    Threes is a dice game. It typically figures exclusively into at-home and private-party gambling; while the origins of its names remain unknown, some speculate the game originated with illicit drug users, who played the game while waiting for their dealer. According to this hypothesis, "tripps" was a double entendre on the homophones "trip" meaning a Psychedelic experience, and "tipple" indicating one facet of the game; certainly the game's least-common name, "Bender's Delight," refers to excessive alcohol consumption and/or an illegal drug binge.
