Partner Dominoes Rules
Only four persons can play. Sitting around a square table, your partner is the person directly in front of you. Each person plays to help his partner and himself while trying to pass the opponent.
The game uses a double six domino set of 28 tiles, known as bones.
Each player receives 7 bones.
The first hand begins with the individual who has the double six bone. Playing the first bone is known as "posing". In tournament play, the first player must begin by posing the [6-6].
In the second and subsequent hands, the team that won the previous hand plays first. Having seen their bones the players of this team may discuss which of them will pose (but are not allowed to tell each other what bones they hold), and the player who starts may begin with any bone. If the previous hand was tied, the holder of the [6-6] poses it.
Play continues anti-clockwise. As usual, a turn consists of playing one bone to extend one of the two ends of the layout, and the touching ends of adjacent dominoes must match. Doubles are traditionally played at right angles across the line. If a player cannot play then he passes his turn.
Apart from the discussion about who should pose at the start of a hand, players are not allowed to pass information by talking or gestures during the play. They must not tell each other what bones they have or what they would like their partner to play.
The play ends when an individual manages to play all his bones, or when the game becomes blocked so that no one is able to play a bone.
If a player manages to play all his bones, that player's team wins.
If the game is blocked, the hand is won by the team of the player whose remaining bones have the least spots. It does not matter what bones the winner's partner has. Example: the game is blocked and North has [5-5] & [5-3], South [1-1], East [2-2], West [5-2] & [2-3], North-South win because of South's [1-1], even though North-South have more spots in total than East-West.
If the game is blocked and two opponents tie for least spots then the teams hand is calculated and the team with the lowest score is the winner.
At the end of the play, the winning team normally scores one point.
However, if both ends of the layout are hard ends with different numbers so that there is only one remaining bone that can legally be played on the layout, that last playable bone is known as the key bone. A player who wins by playing the key bone as his last bone scores an extra point for his team - so 2 points rather than 1. It is also possible for a double to be the only playable bone if the other six bones with that number have been played and both open ends of the line match the final double, but the double does not count as a key bone in that case, and winning with that double scores the usual 1 point only.
The team with the highest points at the end of the day wins!
