Playing Dominoes

Christine, Mike and I have been playing some Dominoes around here lately. We're playing  "Mike's Great Aunts" variation which isn't listed in the instructions.
I had never looked at the instructions before. I never knew there were so many Domino variations until I looked at the instructions that came with our Double Six Set. We were mid-game when I began reading.
There are 15 games listed: Poker, Cardinal Mexican Train, Muggins, Draw, Block, Four-Hand-Texas, Bergen, Matador, Tiddle-A-Wink,
Sebastopol, Bingo, The Big Clock Solitaire, Traffic Solitaire, Good Neighbors Solitaire and Squeeze Solitaire. While I was reading instructions and adding commentary about the ridiculous wording of the instructions, Mike was waiting and he made up his own game.

Dominoes are fun! I don't really think there is a right or wrong way to play. Especially with kids.

Nice flower!
