The Buccaneer

Number of Players: 1
Type of Dominoes Used: Double 6
Type of Game: One Player Game

Object of the game: To get one of the seven doubles at the bottom of each stack and to have the remaining three dominoes in that stack be of the same suit as the double domino on the bottom of the stack.

Play: Keeping the tiles facedown, lace them in seven separate stacks of four dominoes each. Turn faceup the top domino on each of the seven stacks.
A domino may be moved from one stack to another if the number of pips on one end of the domino being moved matches the number of pips on one end of the domino onto which the move is made.
As the facedown dominoes are uncovered, turn them faceup and leave them on their stack. Never have more than five dominoes in any stack at any time.
If you play the bottom domino of any stack, leaving an "empty space," only a double domino may be used to start a new stack in that space.
Never turn a domino faceup unless it is the only domino in a stack or the top domino of the stack.
