DOMINO RULES
______________________________________________________________________________

Objective of Dominoes

The first player to reach the designated final score wins the game. If a player reaches the final score during play, the game ends at that point.

The Set
A standard Double 6 set is used for all games.

 

The Draw
Players can choose to play with a draw of 7 or 9 dominoes from the stock. The dominoes not drawn are to the right side of the table to make up the Boneyard. The player who draws the largest Double makes the first play of the game. The first double played is always the spinner.

How to draw your Dominoes
You can pull the dominoes from the Boneyard by click and dragging the domino of your choice to your side of the table. If you choose to have the computer pull your dominoes for you, you can click "auto draw".

How to play Dominoes
After the first domino is set, the players must join a domino from their hand with an open end in the line of play. The ends of the two dominoes that are joined must have the same number of dots. If a player is unable to make a play from his/her hand, he/she must draw dominoes from the boneyard until a playable domino is drawn. If a player is unable to make a play from his/her hand, and there are no dominoes left in the boneyard, the player must skip his/her turn until he/she is able to make a play.
All dominoes that are playable are highlighted blue. Place a domino into play by clicking and dragging it to a legal position on the table, legal positions are highlighted on the table.

Scoring
A player is awarded points every time he/she makes a play that results in the open ends of the dominoes in the line of play adding to a multiple of 5. (5 points for 5 dots; 10 points for 10 dots; 15 points for 15 dots; and so on.) The player who dominoes is also awarded points at the end of each hand, by adding up the points from the remaining dominoes in his/her opponent's hand. The points from the remaining dominoes are rounded to the nearest multiple of 5. (0, 1, or 2 dots is worth zero points; 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 is worth 5 points; 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 is worth 10 points; and so on.)

Scoring if a hand is blocked: The player with the lowest number of dots scores the total points in his/her opponent's hand rounded to the nearest multiple of 5.

Score: Your score will be displayed to the right your picture.

The first player to reach the designated final score wins the game. If a player reaches the final score during play, the game ends at that point.

The Clock
Your clock runs when it is your turn to play, and it stops when you complete your turn. If you run out of time, then you lose the game and your wager, if playing in a real money game.
