domino-play How to play...  



A block-type domino game, played by four players using a Double-Six domino set and a score-sheet.  An interesting game that may be played by children and adults alike.


The dominoes are shuffled, facedown, then each player draws seven tiles that only they can look at.  There are no remaining dominoes to be set aside or used as a boneyard.

The lead player holding the double-six sets it down and then players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number (doubles not placed horizontally onto ends, allowing play to branch four ways). Should a player be unable to play a tile from their hand in their turn onto either end of the layout, they must ask for a playable tile from the next player in turn.  If they too don't hold a playable tile then the request passes to the next player, and so on, until a tile is given to the stuck player and played, or the request passes all the way around back to the stuck player.  Should this happen, the stuck player may play any tile they wish without having to match ends.

Once a player has dominoed by setting their last tile, the round is over and the player who dominoed, is the winner of that round.  The winner of a round then scores the total number of pips on all the other players' dominoes.

A number of rounds are played and the first player to score a set total (say 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 points), wins the game.
