Thanksgiving Double-Six Dominoes for Holiday Fun!

Add some fun to your Thanksgiving holiday with Thanksgiving Dominoes! Two or more players can use this download to play Double-Six style!

Game play directions: 
Mix up the dominoes and lay them face down in a pile on the
table. Each player takes five dominoes. The dominoes should be
hidden from the other player. The first player lays down a domino.
The other player must lay down a match to one of the exposed
ends of the domino played. The players can play off of any of the
dominoes on the table. If a player does not have any domino that
corresponds to one on the layout, that player must draw a new
domino card. It is possible to play a double, in which case the
layout forms a T shape. Play can continue from any exposed end.
Pass if there are no more dominoes in the pile. If both players pass,
the game ends without a winner. The winner is the first person to run
out of dominoes.

Designed for 2 players but just make two copies for twice the fun! CHSH Download Club subscribers can download @ http://CHSH-Teach.com/pt/Thanksgiving-Related-Resources/wiki.htm
