Domino Fishing Games

Dominoes can be used in a similar way to playing-cards to play fishing games, in which a tile is played from hand to play a tile or tiles from the table. Normally the captured tile has to be equal in value (pip-count) to the played tile, or the values of the played and captured tiles have to add up to a fixed total. Here is a list of domino fishing games whose rules can be found at
