Playing Chicken Dominoes

This is a great domino game- and my boys can play it as young as 5! Yeay for games everyone can play!!! We use double 12 dominoes and the little barn hub. Everyone draws {8 or 10, I can't remember right now..} and the one with the highest double places it in the barn {officially, you are supposed to play each double once to complete a game, but we are done after 3 or 4 rounds!}. As you take turns playing, you put the same number on the barn hub to "get into" the game. You cannot play until you are "in" but someone else can use their turn to put you in if they have the domino and they want to... ;). If you can't play, you draw one domino and the next person goes.
You proceed to play your dominoes until someone places a double out- then you have to make a "chicken foot" placing 3 toes on the double. You cannot play anywhere else until the foot is complete. If you cannot place a toe, you have to draw and sometimes you get stuck drawing a looooong time- especially if you are playing with only 2 or 3 players. The game continues until someone runs out of dominoes and they win! This is a favorite at our house!!
