There are a variety of games you can play with dominoes!
- Blocking and Drawing Games: In blocking and drawing games, the goal is to be the first to lay down all of your dominoes. Points are awarded once play is over and are based on the value of the dominoes left in a player’s hand. At the end of a certain number of rounds, the person with the lowest score wins.
- Scoring Games: In scoring games, players get points both during play, depending on how they lay their tiles, and at the end of the round. In a scoring game, the person who reaches a certain number of points wins the game.
- Trick-taking Games: Trick-taking games closely resemble card games such as Euchre and Spades, The goal of these types of games is to outbid your opponents while being able to cover your bid by winning tricks. Most trick-taking games are played with a partner, and the winner is the team which manages to take the most tricks.
