Domino Star Games
Some domino connecting games use a layout in which arms can be built out in many directions from the initial tile. Games of the Train family, in which each player has their own arm of tiles, form a star layout if each player's train begins from the same common initial tile. There are also a few games in which all the arms are common property.
