A Word Dominoes egy könnyen tanulható társasjáték, 3 - 10 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő rövid, csak 30 perc. A társast, a könnyebb tanulhatósága ellenére, csak 14 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít a lapka-elhelyezés, a szavazás és a történetmesélés mechanizmusokra.
Take turns placing dominoes which link pictures together to suggest words and phrases. Earn points when others guess your phrase or when you guess someone else's phrase. Each domino consists of two simple icons placed at each end and representing common items such as "head", "house", "sun", "knife", etc.
Every person starts with two dominoes in their hand and play on a starting tableau of 4 dominoes in the center of the table. They also have pen and paper to record their guesses.
On your turn play one of your dominoes onto the tableau to form a word or phrase from the two adjacent pictures. Any combination is allowed but you're only joining two icons. Write your phrase secretly on your paper. For example, "bird" and "hand" could be "bird feeder", "a bird in the hand", "pet bird", etc.
Others now write on their papers what they think your word or phrase is. Once everyone has made their guesses score points as follows: everyone scores one point for guessing correctly, the turn player scores one point for everyone that guessed his phrase or just one point if everyone guessed his phrase. A 2 point bonus is awarded the player who solely guessed the phrase.
First player to 11 points wins the game.
