Further information: Chinese dominoes Dutch sailors playing dominoes, 1890s Chinese dominoes [ edit ] Once a player opens the public Mexican Train, each player begins their own private train of dominoes by laying a tile that matches the station number. In our example starting at 6, a player must match the 6.

Players must play one tile on their turn otherwise draw a tile from boneyard. If drawn tile can be played immediately, then it must be played. If not, then a marker is placed on player's train which means that the train is available for play to other players. The round ends as soon as a player has played all his/her tiles or, if there is no possible move for any player. Whenever a double is played, it must be closed at the open end with a matching tile. The player who played the double is allowed to play additional tile to any other train (open to player for play) but subsequent players must play a tile on the double first if it was not closed. The game continues until one player has played all their dominoes or no more moves can be made. If a player cannot make a move, they must draw a new tile from the boneyard. The player who plays all their tiles first or has the fewest remaining tiles at the end of the game is the winner. Dominoes is a game that requires strategy, observation, and careful planning.

However, this is a relatively small number especially when playing with more than four people, so many domino sets are "extended" by introducing ends with greater numbers of spots, which increases the number of unique combinations of ends and thus of pieces. Each progressively larger set increases the maximum number of pips on an end by three; so the common extended sets are double-nine (55 tiles), double-12 (91 tiles), double-15 (136 tiles), and double-18 (190 tiles), which is the maximum in practice. Larger sets such as double-21 (253 tiles) could theoretically exist, but they seem to be extremely rare if not nonexistent, as that would be far more than is normally necessary for most domino games, even with eight players. As the set becomes larger, identifying the number of pips on each domino becomes more difficult, so some large domino sets use more readable Arabic numerals instead of pips.

In Dominoes, each player takes turns placing one of their domino tiles adjacent to an already placed tile. The numbers on the adjacent sides of the tiles must match. For example, if a tile has a 3 on one side and a 5 on the other, you can only place it next to another tile with a 3 or a 5. In some versions, a player who plays a double must fulfill their own double domino, rather than playing the second domino anywhere on the board.
