How to play Dominoes

Once 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 etc.) 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.
