  9. Thank you so much for your video 🙂

  10. Very helpful. There are variations i.e. more plays off a double. But this is an excellent video for starters. Thanks!

  11. Thank you. It had been so long since I had played, I couldn't remember what the marker was used for.

  12. Many people have asked that if a person does not have a tile to match the opening tile what to do. But my question is – even if the player marks their train as “open” how does it start? Does another player have to place an opening tile for them? If so, do they still get the chance to put down as many dominoes as they can? Or do they just have to play one tile at a time in whatever open train there is?

  13. Your explanation was so much easier to follow than the instructions that came with the game–thank you!

  14. If the first player has a double, but do not have a match.
    Does mean the rest players lose their turn to put as many as they could on the first round? And they have to put the match and can only put one from then?

  15. I understand the double must be satisfied before play goes on. But the tutorial only showed the example of double on the Mexican train. Does the rule of being satisfied also apply when a player gets a double on their own train?? In other words does play stop and the double has to be satisfied by anyone just like the example on the video with the double on the mexican train?

  17. What if i start and do not have 12 to start a train?

  18. Great tutorial. 🙂

  19. I have a question we were playing and we got a twelve dbl, the first player got it but couldn’t go so he played from the boneyard and then passed because he did not have a twelve, so to the next person, but wait all twelve dominos, were in the turns 13 twelve doubles were all used, so what do we do if we have no more twelves to use. Because we had a double twelve but all of the twelves were used, so what do we do then.

  20. Thank you! Best explanation of this game I've seen.

  21. Merci pour cette vidéo!

  22. What if I can’t play the opening train?

  23. THANK YOU! My son is newly obsessed with dominos and this was helpful

  24. So question. On the first round when everyone plays til they cant anymore, what happens when a guy ends with a double and get cant match it ? Does the double then become priority even though the next person didnt get to use all his til he ran out.? That's the only part of that rule that makes no sense

  25. lol, i can't be the only one….

  26. Forgot how to play and trying to teach my boyfriend!! Thx so much

  27. sooooo, one question. when, exactly do you mark a train. when you can't play or when you don't play on your Tain? (ps, love your channel!)

  28. AT 4:54 player one has to draw to satisfy the double, but even though they had to draw their train does not open. Is this because they drew for a double and not their own train?

  29. Thanks for the instructions, but here's a problem I ran into. What if you cannot start your train in the first round? Like if there is a double six and I am starting my train but don't have a six. I pull from the boneyard and still don't have a six. Do I keep pulling dominoes until I can play a six? Do I pull one and pass? It's unlikely but it did happen and I was unsure how to deal with that. If anyone can tell me I'd be grateful!

  30. This is the only game I have ever played that has so many different rules, it's pathetic. No two are the same unless you purchase several sets by the same manufacturer..

  31. Would be a great tutorial if you included women in your description. “His train” “he can play…”. Either use they, their or his or her. Women exist and play Mexican train too.

  32. If there is a double and you can satisfy that double, are you allowed to strategically with hold satisfying the double and pick up a tile as if you don't have it? Technically, no one knows what tiles you have…

  33. This is the best tutorial of all the ones I have seen. Thank you!

  34. If you don't have a play on your 1st move, do you draw a tile to see if you can continue? If not, do you open your train on the 1st move?

  35. How does a double work on the first round? Seems like the 1st player could lay down a lot of dominoes, end with a double that no-one else can satisfy. This would give the 1st player a big advantage.
