Tri-Ominoes Rules

Majestic Hotel Harrogate, North Yorkshire
As played by David with learners and elderly persons


2 to 6.


Players draw tiles, depending on how many are playing:
* 2 players draw 9 tiles each
* 3 or 4 players draw 7 tiles each
* 5 or 6 players draw 6 tiles each
Start of play

The player with the highest triple (all three corners the same value) places the first tile. If no one holds a triple, then the tile with the largest point total leads.


Play proceeds clockwise. Each player adds a tile to an open edge of the layout, if he can. To add a tile, a player must match two number to one edge of an existing tile
If a player is unable to make a move, he must draw tiles until he can make a move. If there are no tiles left, then the player must pass.

Ending A Hand

A hand ends either when a player plays all his tiles, or when a game is blocked. A game is blocked when no player is able to add another tile to the layout.
