Scraps can be played by any number of people, and the only requirements are a pair of dice and a full Thanksgiving Day dinner.

The player who can is declared the first Roller and takes the dice for the first toss.

Before the first toss of the round, every player places their food bet on either Made (siding with the Roller) or Leftover (against the Roller). The food bet can be any amount and type of food that was part of the Thanksgiving Day spread.

Once the initial bets have been placed, the Roller tosses the dice. If the dice total equal 7 or 11, the players who bet on Made win, and the losers have to eat the wagered food. If the dice equal 2, 3, or 12, then the Leftover bettors win and the other players eat the wagers.

Now, if the dice add up to any other number, then the point is set. The players can add to their initial bet at this time. The Roller tosses the dice until he or she gets the dice to total either the point or seven. If the Roller tosses the point, the Made bettors win and the Leftovers eat. If the Roller tosses a seven, the Leftovers win and the Made players eat.

When all the bets are eaten, the dice are handed to the next player, and this continues in a clockwise pattern.

To leave the game, a player must puke.
