I played a game with a friend a few years ago and I can't remember what we called it.

The game used a pack of dominos however you placed them around a central card. I believe it was a hexagon and required a double to start (although this may be incorrect).

As you placed your dominoes the game grew out in a star shape. As normal the game ended when a player managed to place all their dominoes.

We called it something different but that's it exactly - thanks! – Liath Jan 7 '14 at 12:44
It is our favorite domino game at home. I am sadly very bad at it. I never could get the strategy as simple as it is. – Pow-Ian Jan 7 '14 at 12:47
I'm terrible at dominos full stop! I'll accept your answer as soon as I can (waiting for the required time). – Liath Jan 7 '14 at 12:48
