Players: Two, three or four may play the game of Dominoes. If four are playing the game, it may be played as a partnership (the two players sitting opposite one another are partners). The Shuffle: To begin the dominoes are placed face down and "shuffled." Players draw one domino. The player drawing the highest double or if no double, the highest domino plays first. Re-shuffle and then begin drawing the first hand. Drawing: Each player then draws seven dominoes for his hand. The remaining dominoes (the boneyard), if any, are left face down on the table to be drawn later if a player is unable to play from his hand. Begin Play: The player who drew the highest double or the highest domino plays first, playing any domino he wishes from his had. Object of the game: Scoring points by laying the dominoes end to end (the touching ends must match: i.e., one's touch one's, two's touch two's, etc.). If the dots on the exposed ends total any multiple of five the player is awarded that number of points. All sides of the first double (the spinner) may be used one piece to each side and later one to each end. All other doubles are played at right angles to the line and the total points on both ends are counted. Dominoing occurs when one player goes out by playing all of his dominoes. The sum of the spots of all opposing players is computed and added to the dominoing player's score (rounded to the nearest five). In partnership play the spots of the partner of the one who "DOMINOED" are not counted. Blocking the Game: If in the course of the game it is impossible for any of the players to play, the game is "Blocked." The player (or partners) having the least spots in his (or their combined) hand(s) scores the total of the spots in the opponents' hands (rounded to the nearest five). The score of 250 points is usually considered a game. The first person (or partnership) to score this amount wins the game. Shuffle and begin a new game. The player who won plays first.
Domino's is not Uno. General rules do not include having to say dominoes in order to go out. However, there are tons of house rules, which means people change the rules depending on how they want to play the game. So it is possible that the people you were playing with have the house rule that you have to say dominoes when you go out.
there are multiple variations, however the game I was taught was you have one piece pulled out that is a double mark (same number on both sides) and scramble then deal out the rest so everyone has an equal number of dominoes. After that, the person to the left lays down a domino that matches the number of the double. Numbers go end to end, except for doubles- they split it- so if you have a layout like = ''== you can with a double go '' ==''=='' ''
(crude drawing) The object of the game is like Uno- be the first player out, with the pips on the dominoes counted up and tallied against the players that did not go out. First person to hit 100 loses.
