Number of Players: 1 player
Type of Dominoes Used: Any Domino
Type of Game: One Player Game
Object of the game: To remove all the dominoes from the line.
Keeping the tiles facedown, line them all up, side by side, in front of you.
Playing from left to right, with the first domino in the line considered the starting point, turn the dominoes faceup, one at a time, While counting "zero, one, two, three...." as each domino is turned faceup.
If the number spoken matches the total sum of the pips on that domino, remove that domino from the line. Continue counting where you left off, as you turn the next domino in line.
Counting begins with zero and ends with the number of pips on the highest double of the set of dominoes you are using for play (double-6: 12; double-7: 14; double-3: 6; double-9: 18; double-12: 24). If playing with a double-6 set of dominoes, count to 12, then begin counting with the number "zero" while turning the next domino in the line.
When you reach the end of the line, return to the first domino, continuing the count from the end of the line. If the number called on the last domino in line was "one," then "two" should be the number called while turning the first domino in line.
Keep repeating this process until all the dominoes in the line have been removed or until you cannot remove any more dominoes.
