Question about Toys

2 Answers

I submitted some more questions a couple days ago about the Mexican Train Domino Game and haven't received an answer yet; was just wondering if you received the questions? My questions were: When you play a domino from your personal train and break it up, what happens to your personal train? Do you continue playing on it from the last domino in the train or from the one where you took the domino from? Can you use your starter domino in your personal train to make a play on another eligible train if that is the only domino that matches in your dominoes when it is your turn? Also, can you use a double from your personal train and the matching one to play on another eligible train? The more we play the game there are more questions come up. Hopefully this will take care of them. Will appreciate any help and answers you may give me. Thank you. Anita Cashdollar

    The response I received on my questions regarding the Mexican Train Domino Game did not answer my questions. I watched the video and read the rules and strategies from other sources but did not get my answers. Maybe there is no set rules for this but would like to know.

    Yes, I received the answers to my questions and was satisfied with them. Thank you very much for all your help.

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

There are several websites that have the complete rules - and answers to your questions. And, there are several variations of the game.

The instructions are too long to post here. Instead, I'll post the links:

(1) http://www.dominorules.com/dominoruledetails.aspx?rule=7

(2) http://www.pagat.com/tile/wdom/mextrain.html

(3) http://www.mexicantrainrulesandstrategies.com/

For the most part, whatever rules are going to be used during play are decided on first - as there are many different variations of the game.

I'd suggest you determine what rules you feel the most comfortable with and go with that.

    ok we will go though each question i havent played this in about 8-10 years so i will reply to how I was oringally taught

    Do you continue playing on it from the last domino in the train or from the one where you took the domino from?you can play from either side if there is a 12,5 down you play on the 12 side if you ahve a match or the 5 side- if you are unable to play a piece that matches then you would have to pick up more pieces till you do acquire one that matches
    Can you use your starter domino in your personal train to make a play on another eligible train if that is the only domino that matches in your dominoes when it is your turn? yes
    Also, can you use a double from your personal train and the matching one to play on another eligible train?yes you would place this horizontal of the actual first train

    the way how we used to play this is the highest double would go first so if you had the double 12 then you would go first if there were no double 12s then it would be called out until you reaced the highest double between all players this is the way that i learned years ago but there are variations see this link
    http://www.dominorules.com/dominoruledet...

    when i first learned this game it wasnt called mexican train

    i hope this helps if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

Do I loose my right to start my train with as many dominoes as I can play if the player before me leaves an open double domino that needs satisfied


Cathy,

Why not just perform a Google search for Domino rules? That would be far easier than asking questions here.

When playing mexican train, can you play on other players trains, if you havent been able to start your own train yet?


It depends how every one agrees. When we play we say no but some players say yes. You just have to make your own rule on that. I know sometime if you can't get started the game is over for you. The main thing is do not get too serious but to have fun.

Hi, i heard the psn network is back up so i did the system update and then i tryed to change my password. I forgot my password so i followed the onscreen instructions and then it said sony would send me an...


There are a lot of people who are having this problem right now, which means a lot of traffic on the network and a lot of password recovery e-mails that are being sent out. One of my roommates had to do the same thing, and it took him 3 days to receive the e-mail. Unfortunately, Sony is swamped right now, I'm sure, so I would give it a couple of days. If it doesn't come within the next couple of days, I would try Sony's helpline again, as they will probably be much less busy in a couple days.
