Domino Games with Pattern Scoring

In some domino connecting games the main aim is to score by forming various types of pattern in the layout. There are separate index pages for games where points are scored for making open ends equal or making the end total a multiple of five or three in which players score for playing a tile that places equal numbers on two or more of the open ends of the layout.

This page page lists traditional and invented domino games on where the aim is to score for other types of pattern, for example by playing a tile whose ends touch and match more than one previous tile, or by creating a repeating pattern, or by playing doubles, or by establishing chains of continually increasing or decreasing numbers, or by creating an enclosed space in a network.
