Dominoes: Fives & Threes
Fives and Threes is a great version of Dominoes that not only includes strategic thinking but a good mathematical twist. Extremely fun to play and definitely one for Domino enthusiast who like a challenge. Mastering this version really does put you in a league above all.
Players score a point for each multiple of 3 and/or 5 that they achieve, and with this version you must achieve the correct target score to win, going over does not count and the game will continue.

HOW TO PLAY
To begin the game a player is chosen at random by the system. They will then be able to play anytile.
The aim of this game is to place a tile where the total pips add up to a multiple of 3 or 5.
The game then continues from player to player, each placing one tile on the table. To place a tile you must be able to match a number in your hand with an open ended number on the table.
If the end tile is a double, both sides count towards the total. Example a domino with 3 : 7 = 7
If at any stage, you cannot play a tile, you will 'knock' and the game continues with your opponent.
The round will continue like this until both players have to 'knock' or one player has no tiles left.
Players will not be dealt dominoes from the Boneyard in this version of the game.
Once a player has either "chipped out" or neither player can go, both players will receive a new set of tiles and the game continues until one player achieves the target score.
When scoring you simply divide the number you have by either a 3 or 5. However many times that number goes into it exactly is the score you receive. The table below shows this a little clearer:
3 / 3 = 1 point
5 / 5 = 1 point
6 / 3 = 2 points
9 / 3 = 3 point
10 / 5 = 2 points
12 / 3 = 4 points
3 and 5
15 / 3 = 5 and 15 / 5 = 3 Total 8 points
18 / 3 = 6 points
20 / 5 = 4 points
You also score 1 point if you "chip out" throughout the game.
The game ends when the first player reaches the exact number of points required. If a player scores more points than the total required (overshoots) then no score is awarded and game continues until someone reaches the exact score.
The current player score is displayed in the score tab located on the left-hand side of the screen.
