Dominoes Setup: From Shuffle to Yard

Shuffling the Dominoes
Start by turning all the dominoes face down on the table. Mix them up thoroughly. This process is known as 'washing' the dominoes.

Drawing Tiles
Once the dominoes are shuffled, each player draws seven tiles from the 'boneyard' (the pile of shuffled dominoes). Make sure to keep your tiles hidden from other players.

Setting Up the 'Yard'
The remaining dominoes form the 'yard' or 'stock.' They should be kept face down and accessible to all players during the game for when they need to draw additional tiles.
