Hi, my name is Blake Whitaker, and I am going to teach you the game of dominoes. The player that gets to go first is the player with the highest domino, the double six. If you do not have the double six, then the player with the double five can go first. If a player does not have the double player, then you go to the double four and so on. The score on the board now is 12 points. The next player has to play a domino that has a six. If you add the two ends together, 12 and 3, it equals 15 which scores. You score in multiples of 5s – 5, 10, 15, 20 and so on. The next player can either play a three or a six. The six-two brings the score to five, because we count both of the ends, the two and the three. Once again, this scores points. The first double played is called the spinner, and in this case it is the double six; and after we play on either side of the double six, we can now play on both of its ends. Any other double played after the first double is not a spinner, and you cannot play on the ends. You always lay doubles perpendicular to the adjacent domino. You can mark your score by using this method. When a player first scores, you put down a dash, which represents 5 points. Two dashes together create a cross that you can fill in with Xs, equaling 10 points, and half Xs, equaling 5 points. When one house if full, you can then create a new house. You can set the limit of the game to a certain amount of houses to win.
