Threes and Fives
A point-type domino game for two to four players, using a Double-Six domino-set and a score-sheet. A very close relation to both Threes and Fives.
Play:
The dominoes are shuffled, then each player draws 7 tiles that only they can look at. Any remaining tiles are used as the boneyard and may be drawn upon by players during the course of play.
The lead player sets down the first domino (the double-six, heaviest double, or whatever convention players have agreed on) and then players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number (doubles placed horizontally onto ends allowing play to branch four ways and known as a spinner).
Players score points every time they play a tile onto the layout and the pips on the open ends total a multiple of 3 or 5. If the total number of pips on the open ends is a multiple of only 3 or only 5 they score that number of points, but if the total number is a multiple of both 3 and 5, they score double that number of points. For example, if the layout's open ends total 6 (3 x 2 = 6) they score 6 points; if the open ends total 10 (5 x 2 = 10) they score 10 points; if the open ends total 30 (3 x 10 = 30 and 5 x 6 = 30) they score 60 (30 + 30). Players scores are recorded on the score-sheet as play progresses.
Once a player has dominoed by setting their last tile, or the game is blocked with no player able to set a tile, the round is over and the player who dominoed or has the lowest total of pips left in their hand, is the winner of that round. The winner of a round then scores the total number of pips on all the other players' dominoes.
A number of rounds are played and the first player to score (usually) 251 points, wins the game.
Variations:
Sometimes played with no doubles as spinners, or with the first initially set double played as the only spinner of a round or game.
Muggins
A good game of the point-type of domino game for two to four players, using a Double-Six domino-set, and a score-sheet.
Play:
The dominoes are shuffled facedown, then each player draws seven tiles that only they can look at. Any remaining tiles are used as the boneyard and may be drawn upon by players during the course of play.
The lead player sets down the first domino (which may be any tile he wishes) and then players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number.
Players score points every time they play a tile onto the layout and the pips on the open ends total a multiple 5. For example 5 points if the ends total 5; 10 points if the ends total 10; 15 points if the ends total 15; and so on. Players must announce their scoring points to claim them and record it on the score-sheet. Should a player fail to claim a scoring play, any other player may claim the points by announcing "muggins!".
Once a player has dominoed by setting their last tile, or the game is blocked with no player able to set a tile, the round is over and the player who dominoed or has the lowest total of pips left in their hand, is the winner of that round. The winner of a round then scores the total number of pips on all the other players' dominoes rounded up or down to the nearest multiple of 5.
A number of rounds are played and the first player to score a set total (say 100, 200, or 250 points), wins the game.
Variations:
When playing as partners, the pips on the winning player's partner's dominoes are subtracted from their total score. Partners' scores are totalled together to form a combined total score. Sometimes played with the last two tiles in the boneyard not drawn when players are unable to make a play.
Sniff
A point-type domino game, usually played by two to four players using a Double-Six domino-set, but may be played with larger domino sets to accommodate more players. Said to be one of the best point-type domino games around for two players. A Cribbage board may be used to record players scores.
Play:
The dominoes are shuffled facedown, then each player draws a number of tiles, that only they can look at, that varies according to the number of players taking part.
  • 2 players draw 7 tiles each
  • 3 players draw 6 tiles each
  • 4 players draw 5 tiles each.
Any remaining tiles are used as the boneyard and may be drawn upon by players during the course of play.
The lead player sets down the first domino which may be any tile he wishes, but the first double, (whether initially set as the first tile of a game or subsequently laid onto the layout during play), can be played off all four of its sides allowing play to branch off four ways and known as the sniff (usually referred to as a spinner). No other double is played as a spinner after the first.
Players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number. Should a player be unable to set a domino from their hand onto the layout, they must draw a tile from the boneyard and play it if they are able, or draw a second tile and try and play it, if they can't.
Players score points every time they play a tile onto the layout and the pips on the open ends total a multiple 5. For example 1 point if the ends total 5; 2 points if the ends total 10; 3 points if the ends total 15; and so on. There may be two, three or four open ends on the layout at any time.
Once a player has dominoed by setting their last tile, or the game is blocked with no player able to set a tile, the round is over and the player who dominoed or has the lowest total of pips left in their hand, is the winner of that round. The winner of a round then scores the total number of pips on all the other players' dominoes.
A number of rounds are played and the first player to score a set total (say 30, or 60 points), wins the game.
Variations:
Players who are unable to play a tile, continue drawing from the boneyard until they can make a play or the boneyard is exhausted and do not stop drawing at the second tile.
A double may be played onto the layout endwise (not horizontally) and scores only the suit points on one of its ends.
A block-type domino game, played by two or more players using any Western set of dominoes, but best played with four or more using a Double-Nine, Double-Twelve, Double-Fifteen or Double-Eighteen domino-set and a score-sheet. A fairly recent domino game that is popular in Texas.
Play:
The dominoes are shuffled facedown, then each player draws a number of tiles, that only they can look at, that varies depending on the number of players taking part.
Double-Nine
    • 2 players draw 12 tiles each.
    • 3 players draw 11 tiles each.
    • 4 players draw 10 tiles each.
    Double-Twelve
    • 5 players draw 12 tiles each.
    • 6 players draw 11 tiles each.
    • 7 players draw 10 tiles each.
    • 8 players draw 9 tiles each.
    Double-Fifteen
    • 9 players draw 12 tiles each.
    • 10 players draw 11 tiles each.
    • 11 players draw 10 tiles each.
    • 12 players draw 9 tiles each.
    Double-Eighteen
    • 13 players draw 12 tiles each.
    • 14 players draw 11 tiles each.
    • 15 players draw 10 tiles each.
    • 16 players draw 9 tiles each.
    Any remaining tiles are used as the boneyard (or chicken yard) and may be drawn upon by players during the course of play.
    The lead player holding the highest double in the domino set, sets it down, and then players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number (the first double allowing play to branch four ways and known as the spinner). Should a player be unable to set a domino from their hand onto the layout, they must draw a tile, once, from any in the boneyard and are allowed to play it onto the layout if they are able. .
    Doubles are placed horizontally onto tile ends and a player who plays one should announce it by saying "chicken foot". No further tiles may be played anywhere else on the layout until three are placed to the chickenfoot-double forming the chickenfoot pattern that gives the game its name.
    All three tile ends of the chickenfoot "toes" may be subsequently played on.
    Once a player is holding only one tile in their hand, by courtesy, they must announce it by saying "uno!".
    Once a player has dominoed by setting their last tile, or the game is blocked with no player able to set a tile, the round is over and the player who dominoed or has the lowest total of pips left in their hand, is the winner of that round. Players then score the total number of pips on all their remaining dominoes except for the double-blank which scores 50 points. . NOTE: A blank can also be scored as ZERO points
    A number of rounds are played, each started with a subsequently lower double than the previous round, down to double-blank, and the player who scores the greatest total of points, loses the game, and the lowest scoring player, wins.
    Variations:
    The first initially set double is played on both horizontal sides with 3 tiles on each side, forming a double chickenfoot.
    If the double needed to start the game is in the boneyard (or chicken yard), players may start with the next lowest double or reshuffle the domino set and start again. .
    Domino Pool
    A block-type domino game for two or more players using any Western domino set from Double-Sixes up to Double-Eighteens, and for stakes. A particularly good party game for three to six players that can also be played by teams. It is really only the basic Block game played with stakes.
    Play:
    Before each round or game players ante a predetermined fixed wager amount into the pot. The dominoes are shuffled, then each player draws a number of tiles, that only they can look at, that depends on the number of players taking part. With a Double-Six domino set players draw the following number of tiles leaving at least eight remaining dominoes that are set aside and not used in further play. .
    • 2 players draw 7 tiles. •
    • 3 players draw 6 tiles. •
    • 4 players draw 5 tiles. •
    • 5 players draw 4 tiles. •
    • 6 players draw 3 tiles.

    The lead player sets down the first domino (the double-six, heaviest double, or whatever convention players have agreed on) and then players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number (doubles placed horizontally onto ends allowing play to branch four ways and known as a spinner).
    Once a player has dominoed by setting their last tile, or the game is blocked with no player able to set a tile, the round is over and the player who dominoed or has the lowest total of pips left in their hand, is the winner of that round. The winner of a round then scores the total number of pips on all the other players' dominoes.
    The winner of a round or game, takes the pot.
    Variations:
    Sometimes played with no doubles as spinners, or with the first initially set double played as the only spinner of a round or game.
