domino-play How to play...  



A point-type domino game for two to four players using a Double-Six domino set and a score sheet. The difference in this game is in the unique way players score points every time they play a tile onto the layout.


The dominoes are shuffled, facedown, then each player draws five tiles that only they can look at.  Any remaining tiles are used as the boneyard and may be drawn upon by players during the course of play.

The lead player sets down the first domino (which may be any he chooses) and then players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number. 

Players score points every time they play a tile onto the layout, and they score the total number of pips on the open end of the tile they have played, every time, no matter what the value is. If a player plays a double, they score the pip total for both ends of the tile.

Should a player be unable to set a domino from their hand onto the layout, they must continue to draw one tile from any in the boneyard until they are able to play one or the boneyard is exhausted.

Players' accumulated scores are noted on the score sheet, and once a player has reached a total score over 50 points, they have won the game, and get to shout "Domino!".  


Players may set the target total of points lower or higher than 50 for a shorter or longer game. If the total is high and it isn't reached in one round, players play another round and continue their scores from the previous one.
