Tri-Ominos is the classic triangular domino game. Players begin by drawing several tiles, keeping the numbered sides hidden from their opponents. As each piece is played, points are awarded. New pieces much match the numbers on one of the existing pieces. If you don't have a matching tile, draw from the stock until you get a match. There are penalty points for each tile drawn, but points are awarded when you finally make a match. Certain matches, such as closing a hexagon or building a bridge, earn players as many as 50 bonus points.
Tri-Ominos is fun for the whole family. Children will be adept at matching numbers wherever possible, and adults will appreciate the strategy involved in making the best moves for the most points. The first player to accumulate 400 points wins.
The deluxe edition of the game includes crystalline playing tiles crafted of a smooth, solid plastic that give the tiles a hefty feel. Also, the center of each tile features a brass spinner that makes the tiles easy to handle, and they store neatly in the Scrabble-style trays.
