Domino Adding Games

Dominoes can be used to play various kinds of adding game, where the mechanism and objectives depend on adding up the number of spots on the tiles, or sometimes other arithmetical calculations. Some of these are adaptations of adding games with playing-cards, such as 21 or Cribbage, and some are specially developed to use dominoes.
