Concentration Domino Rules
How To Play Concentration Dominoes
Domino Set Required: Normally uses a double-six set, but larger sets may support more players
Concentration Dominoes is similar to the Concentration card game. It's a simple game, and requires little planning or strategy, but a good memory definitely helps.
Shuffle the dominoes, then arrange them into a 4 x 7 grid. In Concentration, players do not have hands, but play from the tiles on the table.
Each player in turn turns over two dominoes. If the dots on the two tiles add up to 12 (as in the 4-3 plus 4-1 in the photo), remove them from the grid, set them aside, and take another turn.
If the two dominoes do not add up to 12, turn them back over. Play passes to the next player.
Concentration is played to 50 points (tiles).
- Larger domino sets support more players, or make the game last longer. If you use a double-nine set, make pairs that total 18. If you use a double-twelve set, make pairs that total 24.
