What is Mexican Train about?

Mexican Train is a dominoes-based game that requires both strategy and luck. The goal of the game is to get rid of all your dominoes by matching them with those already played on the “train” – a line of dominoes placed in the center of the table. The catch? You can only play on your own “train” or the Mexican Train, which is a communal train that anyone can play on.

How to Play

One of my favorite things about Mexican Train is its simplicity. The rules are easy to understand, making it a great game for players of all ages and experience levels. In fact, I’ve played this game with my friends, family members, and even strangers I met at game nights – it’s that versatile!

But don’t be fooled by its simplicity; there’s still plenty of strategy involved in Mexican Train. You have to carefully plan your moves, taking into account not only your own train but also the Mexican Train and other players’ trains. It can be a real challenge to predict and block your opponents’ moves while trying to get rid of your own dominoes.

The game mechanics of Mexican Train are also quite interesting. The most common set used in this game is the double 12 set, which has a total of 91 dominoes. Each player starts with a certain number of dominoes depending on the number of players in the game. The remaining dominoes are placed face-down in the center, and one is turned over to start the Mexican Train.

Who Can Play

Mexican Train is a game that can be enjoyed by anyone – from casual players to serious gamers. It’s a great game for families, friends, or even as an icebreaker at parties. I’ve introduced this game to so many people over the years, and it never fails to bring laughter and friendly competition.

What Makes It Fun

What makes Mexican Train even more fun is that it has endless variations. You can modify the rules or create your own house rules to add a new twist to the game. This keeps the game fresh and exciting every time you play.
