I'm not very excited about this one either, but when I searched the Geek for a list of Domino games and rec's, none came up. Don't bother asking why I wanted a list of Domino games, or even why I'm making one now. But BGG is starting to remind me of that computer from the Douglas Adams books...we need to feed it every thing in the Universe until it can tell us the meaning of life. So, perhaps in pursuit of that goal or to please the other 4 Domino-players on the Geek, I present the very first list of rated domino games. From the highest score to the lowest, btw.
Don't all recommend it at once, now.

Like Euchre, but with dominoes. I've not played this one, but it comes quite highly rated for such a simple-sounding trick-taking mechanic.

You've got to be committed to play this one, as it requires the purchasing of an entire customized set. Apparently like Chickenfoot, but more Spinner-icious.

Ahh...the classic Chicken Foot. Does any other game carry with it such strong overtones of ignorant Saturday afternoons on the wrap-around porch?

Gaining popularity amongst the middle-classes now, for unidentifiable reasons. I guess they like the little choo-choos.

This is like putting "Playing Cards" on the geek as a seperate game. There is no "Dominoes" game, but I imagine the most popular variant is Muggins, so let's assume that's what is getting the 5.5 here. And if so, it deserves higher. Muggins is one of those classic games that beginners always think is all luck...until they're beaten down 10 times in a row by a skilled player.

You know, I never played this, but by the sound of it, it could be fun. Sure seems like blasphemy to add another # to a domino piece, though.

For those deceived by triominos, a most logical and challenging variation. Said to be the "dominoes for the 2000 years"

I'm the designer, so I hesitate to add this, but it really is a good game (and no, I haven't rated it). It has elements of both No Thanks! and Coloretto -- the basic idea is that you're trying to end up with dominoes that work well with your own personal tableau, but you don't want to pay too much for them. It's a simple puzzle game with surprising depth that plays in about 10 minutes per player. The rules can be found on the Euronimoes page of my blog, playing and designing board games.
