Dominoes: 42

This page is still under construction but it is fairly complete now... Please email if you find any problems or have any suggestions, new rules, etc.


Legend has it that 42 was invented by a young Baptist boy in east Texas because he wasn't allowed to play cards. The rules are like those in Bridge but different. Also known as Texas 42.

The Game

42 is a bidding game where teams try to catch tricks with 5 and 10 spot count dominoes to make their bid. It is played with 4 players and 1 set of Double-Six dominoes.
