Draw game

The Draw game in domino is a popular variant of the regular game. In this game, players receive five pieces and score based on the number of pips on each piece. If a domino has a doublet, the player who placed it on top of the chain gets the doublet’s value and becomes the leader. This variant of the draw game is more challenging than the standard game.

Western variants

Western domino is a variant of Chinese domino, in which players take turns playing sets of tiles. The rules are similar to Chinese domino, but the tiles are thicker and tend to fall over less often. Players take turns playing a set of tiles, and the goal is to reach the target score, which is 210 points.

Rules of the game

The Rules of Domino are very simple and straightforward. The main objective of the game is to create a series of enclosed spaces. Each cell is half a domino tile and is scored with one point. The blank tile serves as a wild card and can be played on any side of the game board.
