Game description

For this domino search game, you will need 15-30 dominoes, depending on the number of children. In other words, if you have two teams, you will need roughly 60 dominoes. Next, hide all dominoes. Make sure the hiding places are not too easy but at the same time also not too hard. Adjust to the age and skill of the children you are playing with. Now both teams come to a fictitious starting line. Next, either all kids go looking for dominoes or, if you want to make it all a little bit harder only one kid of each team searches for a domino. Only when he found a Domino, the next child can start. Make sure, if you play this version that each child only returns one domino at the time.


The team gathering 30 dominoes first, get one point. After that, they get another minute or so to build a domino chain. After the time is over, all dominoes are toppled over to achieve the domino effect. The team with the longest domino chain gets a point and wins. If that is the team which already earned one point, then they are the obvious winners. If both teams have already one point, determine the overall winner with a quiz.
