Latin American Match Dominoes

A block-type domino game, played by four players as two teams of two, using a Double-Six domino set and a score-sheet. This games is played in much the same way as standard Block dominoes but with different scoring rules.


The dominoes are shuffled, facedown, then each player draws seven tiles that only they can look at.  Any remaining dominoes are set aside and not used in further play.

The lead player sets down the first domino which must be the double-six and then players in turn lay tiles onto the open ends of the domino layout with same-number adjacent to same-number (doubles placed horizontally onto ends, allowing play to branch four ways, and known as a spinner).

Once a player has dominoed by setting their last tile, or the game is blocked with no player able to set a tile, the round is over and the player who dominoed or has the lowest total of pips left in their hand, is the winner of that game. 

A number of games are played and the first team of players to score 10 games, without the other team winning at least 5 games, wins the match. Should the other team score 5 or more games, the match is declared a tie.
