Number of Players: 8
Type of Dominoes Used: Double 6
Type of Game: Trump & Trick Game

Type of dominoes: Two Double-6 sets
    
    
    
    Number of Players: 8 players play as two teams of 4 players per team or 6 players play as two teams of 3 players per team.
    
    
    
    Number of dominoes drawn: When 8 play, each player draws 7 tiles and there are no tiles remaining in the boneyard. When 6 play, each player draws 9 tiles with 2 tiles remaining in the boneyard.
    
    
    
    Use the rules to Forty-Two, with the following variations: If two identical dominoes are played, the one played first takes precedence. The minimum bid is 60. With 8 players there are 7 tricks and each trick is worth 2 points. With 6 players there are 9 tricks and each trick is worth 2 points. Total of 84 points to be won in each hand. 8 Players: 70 (35 points in a double 6 set x 2) + 14 (7 tricks at 2 points each) = 84. With 6 Players: 70 (35 points in a double-6 set x 2) + 0 (tricks are worth nothing when playing this game with 6 players + 14 (each double is worth one point when playing this game with 6 players) = 84.
