Double-Six Dominoes

The way dominoes was meant to be played

With Double-Six Dominoes, you can play against the computer or another human player via the Internet. Double-Six Dominoes follows the rules known as 'Muggins' or 'The Five Game'. This program is very easy to use and will actually teach you to play dominoes. Then, when you are ready, switch to Advanced mode for a more challenging game.

I developed Double-Six Dominoes because I could not find a dominoes game that properly simulated the way that I like to play dominoes. I also developed this game to learn how to write multi-player internet games. (Boy, what a pain that turned out to be!)

My goal in writing this game was to simulate as closely as possible the experience of playing dominoes. This is the reason that the dominoes that are in your hand are displayed horizontaly. I don't play with my dominoes proped up on their ends! So, neither does this simulation. I also wanted to accurately simulate the way that I play. I developed the computer's AI to be as close to the way that I actually play as I could get. In fact, my record against the computer's Advanced Mode is almost even. It plays a solid game and should provide you with many hours of entertainment.

I invite you to download and try this game for free. All that I ask is that if you like it and plan to play it in the future that you purchase it from me. Visit the Purchase page for details on how to buy this game.

I sincerely hope that you have as much fun playing this game as I had writing it!
