Number of Players: 2 - 4
Type of Dominoes Used: Any Domino

What's unique: The highest double is played as set. The set domino must be played on both ends, both sides, and diagonally, forming a 7-tile star with a double-6 set of dominoes or a 9-tile star with a double-9 or double-12 set, before any other tile can be played.
This is the Block game with the above and the set exception.
Set: The player holding the highest double begins play.
