Good game to teach strategy and visual skills
August 31, 2002

A friend has played this game enough to require the repainting of the numbers on the tiles. The rules are simple and easy to follow. Unlike Dominos, this game does note have all possible number configurations, which makes strategy a bit difficult, but non-the-less necessary. Since there are some drawbacks in the official rules, the fact that this game's play time is short is a plus. Those that play this game in our group (all over 50) find this game satisfying no matter what their preferences (word games vs cards vs charades etc.).

A new angle on dominoes
August 28, 1999

Bored with dominoes? Tri-ominoes is a game with the same idea except that instead of being rectangular with a number on each end, the tiles are triangular with a number (from 0 to 5) in each corner.

Other than that, the game plays pretty much the same as in dominoes. There's some strategy in the game as you need to plan to be able to get rid of all of your tiles. Some of your tiles can be very hard to get rid of; often a mirror-image of your tile would be playable but yours is not - and no tile in the game has a mirror image - so you'll have to pursue another avenue to play that tile.

I find that the rules as they stand can be vastly unfair and overpunish bad luck. Since a triple-number tile has only five other tiles it will touch, if you are unfortunate you could draw half of the draw pile before you are able to go. Additionally, with two players, both usually cross the winning score of 400 in the third game so the winner is invariably the winner of that game. Instead, I have a house rule of best-score-after-three-games. This seems to be more balanced for two players.

I have had Tri-ominoes for over fifteen years, and it still comes out of the game closet frequently. This game is a stayer.
