Type of Dominoes Used: Any Domino
Type of Game: Blocking Game
This is just a variation to the rules of Block, Draw, Muggins or many other games.
Playing with this variation does lengthen the game. Hence, the appropriate name - Stretch. Use the rules to Block, Draw, Muggins, or many other games, with this exception:
At the end of each hand, all players count the total number of pips on the tiles, if any, remaining in their hand. That number is then subtracted from their own score, unlike in most games where that number would be added to the winner's score.
