1. The dominoes (or tiles) are placed face down in the middle of the table. Each player chooses a tile at random. The player with the highest number of spots goes first. Tiles are replaced and moved around to 'shuffle' them.

2. If there are 2 or 3 players, they choose 7 dominoes each; 4 to 5 players choose 5 tile each. Players place the tiles face down, WITHOUT LOOKING AT THEM, in a line in front of them. Unused dominoes are moved to the side of the table.

3. The first player takes the domino from the left-hand end of their line and puts it face up in the middle of the table. The player to their left chooses the tile on the left of their line and tries to match it to the one on the table. If they cannot match their tile to either end, it is put back (face down) on the right-hand end of their line.

4. Play continues around the table until either one player has put all their dominoes on the table (the winner) or there are no more moves available for any player (a drawn game).
