Place tiles which have a number of pips that matches one of the exposed ends of the chain. If you have no such tiles you have to draw from the boneyard one tile at a time until new one may be played.
After placement player will get points if the sum of pips at the exposed ends of the chain is a multiple of five (5,10,15,20,etc).
At the end of the round player also scores points for all the pips remaining in the opponent's hand rounded to the nearest multiple of five.
Winner is the first player who reach the score of 150 points.

Fun, and cute. But not very challenging.
I like playing this game— it’s a great way to kill a few minutes or an hour or two. Few suggestions:
1. At present, when you pick up a tile to play, before you set it down, it shows all the legal places you can put the tile, and shows the point value associated with placing the tile at each legal position. It would be *NICE* to be able to turn off the point display for each placement option, so that it’s more like real dominos! (When you are playing real dominos with a friend, your kitchen table isn’t kind enough to show you the correct point tallies! — working that out for yourself is half the fun!)
2. Supporting a few more rule variations would make the game a lot more fun, too. There are so many minor variations on the game — e.g., allowing doubles to be played in-line or perpendicularly at the player’s discretion; requiring the first tile to be a double (and reshuffling if nobody has a double); requiring doubles to be “covered” by the next player (a la Mexican Train); etc. etc…
Really fun, though— I’ll pay for the real version!
Not bad, but needs work
Not a bad 5-ups dominos game, but I have a suggestion for domino placement. A click-to-choose feature and a subsequent click-to-place where you really want it to be would be helpful for us laptop players who have lost points while trying to drag the domino to a specific spot and having it torn from our drag and set in a different place than what we intended. And there are specific times I should have had first placement in a game, but the computer opponent still gets to play first.
But with those issues its still fun and a way to kill some time. Fix the placement issues and I’ll up the rating.
Waste of time and effort. I love dominos—and can't understand why this game, whatever it is, uses the same name?
14Aug2015: Tried this game again to see if it was any better. It's not! Second game>I'm dealt 6-6 & 5-5 which, no matter whose fingers you count on, gives me first play. So "my opponent" immediately slams down the 0-0 and I lose the opening play! Will someone please explain just exactly how 0-0 got bigger than 5-5 & 6-6? Am I playing in some mirror universe?
20Feb2017: Still haven’t quite figured out how first play is selected, except once you have it, you keep first play no matter who has or wins anything.
Finally figured out why the little computer between my ears sometimes goes wacky and is unable to count correctly. In this game half of the spinner isn’t counted if a tile is played on it instead of the spinner counting full count until BOTH SIDES OF THE SPINNER ARE PLAYED ON! I’ve played a lot of dominos in alot of different places but this is the first time I’ve seen this way ofMIScounting.
Glad I didn’t waste my money on this game!
