Dead Even

A PyroMyth dominos game for 2 or more players*; Ages (If you can add you can play)

(Warning this game may be educational)

* The maximum # of players is directly proportionate to the set of dominos. A double 12s set can support 6 players; smaller sets will support less; larger sets will support more.

Required Equipment: One set of dominos, paper and pencil.

To start the game place the dominos face down and mix them well. Each player draws 5 tiles keeping the values hidden from the others. The youngest player should get to go first; play will continue clockwise. On a players turn they will take the following actions in order.
1. Draw a tile
2. Score a set of tiles if possible
3. Bring hand to 5 tiles

Draw a tile: The player will take one of the face down tiles or one face up tile from the discard pile.

Score a set of tiles: Tiles are scored by matching a set of three or more so that the top row value is equal to the value of the bottom row.

Example 1

The points you score for the set are as follows

1 pt for each tile in the match
5 pts for using all 6 tiles
-2 pts for using a double (no matter how many are used)*

*Any tile that has the same value on the top and bottom tiles that are scored should be set aside face up so all players may view them, keep this away from the discard pile so they are not confused with each other.

Bring hand to 5 tiles: if the player drew a tile and was unable to score they must discard one face up; it may not be the same tile they drew from the discard. A play that scored draws tiles from the face down tiles to fill their hand to 5 if possible.

The game ends when there are no remain face down tiles and a player is unable to score.
