When I was a little
kid I thought dominoes were a great toy...
It wasn't till I got a little older that I found out you could
also play games with them too.
That made them even cooler.
The Domino Deck
My 90+ year old mom loves to play games, but
her eyesight isn't what it use to be and now she is legally
I like to play games with her and one of the type of games we
like to play is domino games.
The problem is she has a hard time seeing the pips on the
and has to constantly pick them up one at a time to see what
I made the domino deck with large fonts. She finds them easier
to see and use since they are all in her hand.
The domino deck is a double 12 set of dominoes that can fit in
It can easily be made into a double 6 or 9 using the colored
center bar I added to the cards.
Overlapping the cards as you play allows you to play without
taking up more room then a regular set of dominoes,
and you can still see what has been played before.
While making the
Domino Deck, I came up with the idea for a domino game.
That game became Engine No.9.
Engine No.9 is a Railroad themed game for 2 to 5 players.
It uses a double 6 set of dominoes for 2 players and a
double 9 for up to 5 players.
The goal is simple, be the first player to win 3 rounds and
you win the game.
The player with the lowest score at the end of the round wins
