Domino Cross

15 min2 participants

Identify, write and represent small numbers. Analyze and plan strategic actions to compete in a domino game with peers.

Let's play!

Player 1 and Player 2

  1. Take 6 bricks from the bowl.

  2. Place your bricks on the base plate, while taking turns.

  3. Place only identical bricks next to each other.

  4. Pass if you cannot play a brick.

Winner - the first to run out of bricks.

Tie - when brick number 5 is the only remaining brick in the bowl.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • 17 number bricks (4 with “1”, 4 with “2”, 4 with “3”, 4 with “4” and 1 with “5”) 

  • 1 number sign brick

  • 1 bowl

Number sign is located on the top left corner of the base plate to indicate the bricks represent numbers.

Place 4 bricks, numbered from “1” to “4”, in cross formation on the base plate.

The 13 other bricks are in the bowl.

Facilitation tips

  • Remind visually impaired players that other players with vision may be able to see their bricks if they are not hidden.

Possible variations

  • Change the numbers used e.g. 1, 3, 5, 7 instead of 1, 2, 3, 4.

  • Make 2 crosses with 8 different numbers.

  • When unable to match a brick, players take an extra brick from the bowl.
