There are many different types of games to play with dominos.
We have adapted the most common domino game, The Draw Domino
Game, to work with our printed dominoes.
Shuffling The Dominoes
Before a game or hand begins, the dominos must be shuffled. You can turn them all face-down on the table, then move them
around in a random motion, being careful not to flip over any of
the pieces. The collection of shuffled tiles is called the
The Draw Domino Game
Each player draws four dominos without letting the other players
see their dominos. Have the youngest player go first and lay
any domino on the table. The next player tries to match the
numbers or pictures on one end of a domino from his/her hand
with the numbers or pictures on an open end of any domino on the
table (see our example below). If a player cannot make a
match, he/she must draw from
the boneyard until a domino that can be played is drawn. If
there are no dominos left in the boneyard, the player passes his/her
turn. The first player to get rid of all his dominos wins the
hand. If none of the players can make a match, the hand or game
ends in a block. In the case of a block, the players turn the dominos
in their hands face up for counting. The player with the lowest
total wins the hand or game.
