Dominoes were reported as early as 1120 in China. However, the dominoes we are most familiar with originated in eighteenth-century Europe, specifically in Italy and then France. When dominoes arrived in France they became wildly popular and were used for playing games as well as puzzles testing math and logic skills. Early dominoes were often found being played in bar and taverns.
How To Play:
1. Start with the highest double tile in the set (same on both ends).
2. For 2-4 players, draw ten tiles each and set the rest aside.
3. The object of the game is to get rid of all your tiles by matching similar ends to those already in play.
4. Start your own personal line of tiles (train) off the starting tile (station) or build off another player’s trains.
5. If a double is played then the player can lay an additional connecting tile (if possible).
6. If you are unable to make a move select a tile from the pile of extras.
7. If a move can be made, players must place tile regardless of potential strategic motivations.
8. Once a player has won, the remaining players total the dots on their dominoes to calculate the winner’s score.
