how to play double-six dominoes
Object of the game:
Be the first to play all of your dominoes.
Number of players:
2-4. In a game with 4 people, players pair up into teams. Teammates sit across from each other.
Prepping the domino set:
Layout out all of the domino tiles face down on the table and shuffle them. Each player draws
seven tiles – do not show your tiles to the other players. If there are any remaining tiles, push
them aside to form the draw pile. In Puerto Rican culture, a double-six set (28 tiles) is typically used.
Game rules:
For the initial round, the player with the highest double starts by placing that tile in the center
of the table. Play continues to the right (counter-clockwise).
Players have three options on their turn:
• Place a tile matching the number of dots of an tile at either end of the domino line.
• Draw an additional tile. Only an option when a draw pile is available.
• Pass their turn. You cannot pass if you have a playable tile.
A round ends when a player plays their last tile (unless the game becomes locked). The first
person to play all of their tiles is winner of the round. The dots on dominoes of the other players
are counted as points for the winner or winning team. If the game is locked, the player/team with
the lightest hand (least amount of dots) wins the round and gets the points from the tiles left
in the hands of all the players.
To play a match:
A domino match is made of several rounds and the first player/team to score 500 points wins.
For a match, the following bonus points are awarded:
1st round winners: 100 bonus points
2nd round winners: 75 bonus points
3rd round winners: 50 bonus points
4th round winners: 25 bonus points
Winning with the double-blank tile: 100 bonus points
Winning tile can be played on either end - excluding doubles: 100 bonus points
