The game of 'block and draw' is the game that you will probably have played as a child. It teaches all the basic elements of dominoes and is the first game that anyone should learn. You can then go on to more challenging games like matador or mexican trains. For children there are other variations on the game of dominoes, like Blind Hughie.
Rules to Block and Draw Dominoes
Number of Players: 2-5
A 'bone' or 'tile' is an actual domino.
You Will Need: A set of double six dominoes (28 bones).
Turn all the bones face down on the table and shuffle them. If there are 2 or 3 players each takes 7 bones. 4 or 5 players take 5 each. When you all have a full hand of dominoes there will be some left over, these are put to one side to form the bone yard.
The player with the highest double starts. The first player lays the double face up on the table and play moves to the left . This player must lay a domino that matches the previously laid domino. The third player has to match either end of the formation. Play continues clockwise in this manner. Doubles should be laid at a right angle to all other dominoes.
So, the first move might be a double 6, the second a 6:4. The next player can lay any domino from his hand that shows either a 6, or a 4, no matter what the other side shows.
If there are no bones left in the bone yard and a player cannot go then they simply pass.
** A variation on this rule is that there is no limit to the amount of dominoes that can be taken from the boneyard and the player must keep going until they find one they can lay. If they empty the boneyard then they can pass. We don’t recommend playing this rule with young children.
The player who gets rid of all his bones first wins or play continues until no more dominoes can be played. This is a blocked game, in which case the .player with the least bones left, wins.
The first player to 100 points wins.
