Two Dominoes

This is a quick adding game for two players.

You need a set of dominoes and paper and pencils to keep score

To start, mix the dominoes face down and split them so that the players have a pile each.


All the players turn over any two dominoes in their own pile.

They each add up the dots showing on their own pair of dominoes and shout out the total.

4 + 3 + 1 + 5 = 13

6 + 3 + 2 + 3 = 14

The first player to shout gets 1 point

The player with the highest total scores 2 points

The first to get 10 or more points is the winner.
