What It Is
What It Is
For fans of dominoes, Mathable Domino offers a tougher challenge to the classic game. The object of the game is to get rid of all your dominoes by using the numbers on the dominoes to complete math equations.
Players sit around a table and start by turning all the dominoes facedown on the playing surface. Determine who will be the starting player, and then distribute the dominoes. (The amount of dominoes each player gets depends on how many players there are.) Any extra dominoes go into the draw pile. The first player draws a domino from the draw pile and places it in the center of the playing surface facing up. Players must try to place one of their dominoes next to the domino in the middle of the game surface to complete any equation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) so that one of the two numbers on the domino placed is the result of the equation formed by the two adjacent numbers. If a player can't place a domino, he must draw one from the reserve pile and miss his turn.
Mathable Domino comes with 57 numbered dominoes and three blank replacement dominoes. It is for two to four players.
