YOU WILL NEED

You will need: a set of dominoes and 2 - 4 players (more players can double up into teams)

STEP 1

  • Put all the dominoes face down on the table. Give them a good mix up!

STEP 2

  • Each player takes 7 dominoes. Set them up on their sides facing you - don't show anyone else!
  • Put the remaining dominoes to one side, face down.

STEP 3

  • Youngest player can start by putting any tile face up in the middle

STEP 4

  • The next player has to put down a tile that matches either of the numbers on their partner's tile
  • Tiles are placed short end to short end - unless, you've got a double number. The double numbers are put down the other way round (long-end to short-end).
  • Blank tiles are just like blanks tiles in scrabble - they can be anything!
  • You can put a tile at either side of the domino trail!
  • If you can't go, you have to pick up from the spare pile!

    STEP 5

    • The winner is the one who uses up their tiles first
    • Time for a cocktail!
