Rules to play Dominoes
Decide the order of play
There are a few ways to do this; choose whatever method you and your partner can both agree on. The most common methods are as follows
Each player picks one extra tile from the bone yard. The player who draws the tile with the highest total value goes first.
Each player reviews his or her hand and reveals the tile with the highest total value. Whoever has the highest number goes first.
Each player reveals a double a tile with the same number on either end from his or her hand, and the player with the highest double goes first.
One player flips a coin and the other player calls it. Whoever wins the flip goes first.
