There are many variations of how to play or use dominoes.
Here is one way to play with two players.
Turn all the dominoes over - so you cannot see the dots, mix them up.
Each player selects 7 dominoes and stands them on the long edge so the person they are playing cannot see them.
The player with a double starts first - if there are no doubles, the player with the most dots on one domino starts first.
Lay one domino down and the other player must match it with the same dots - great for counting, trusting the count and subitising.
Doubles should be placed at right angles - so that the game can take new directions.
If a player cannot match and join an end, then they draw a domino from the pile.
The winner is the player who has played all their dominoes.
If you want to score - add up the dominoes you are left holding and the one with the smallest total wins.
