A game of dominos; a team of 8 players meet to enjoy the games. The players help Austin Deaf Club by donating $1 per player. There are at least three permanent teams already formed with 8 players. If you are interested, you need to form a team of 8 players and join the fun.
The object of all Trains games is to be the first player to place all of their dominoes. Dominoes may be placed onto the player's train, onto the Mexican train if available, or on the trains of other players under special circumstances.
