Dominos practices of the SACI 

By Herman Santa

Rules:

500 (Quinientos) This game is for 4 players (2 partners) and the first team to score 500 points wins the match. The match is made of several bonus point situations described below.

The winning team of the first game in the match scores a bonus 100 points, the winner in the second game scores a bonus of 75 points, 50 points in the third game, and 25 in the fourth. No bonus points are scored for winning the fifth game and on. If a game is won by a “Chuchazo” or a “Capicú” the wining team scores an additional 100 points in that hand.

Some Puertorican Dominó Terms:

“Mano” – The term is used to refer to the player whith the least dominoes. The player who (provided he didn’t get a Pase [a pass]) would win the game. If this player gets a pass, it is said that: he/she lost ‘la Mano’, and that the next person after him/her with the least dominoes is now Mano.

“Chucha” – The name of the double-blank bone and “Chuchazo” – When the “Chucha” is the winning bone (the last bone played by the player who goes domino). There is no “Chuchazo” when the “Tranque” in a blocked game is the “Chucha”.

“Capicú” – When the winning bone can play on either open end of the layout. Doesn’t apply when the winning bone is a double.

“Tranque” – It’s the name given to the last bone legally played before a game gets blocked.

“Ahorcado” – A hanged double. A double that can no longer be played because all the other 6 dominoes in that suit have been played.

“Pase” – It’s when a player or team can’t play. When a player passes, it is customary to knock one of his bones on the table as a signal that he is passing. Alternately he/she can signal the pass by saying the word “Paso” (Pass). There are some games where there are bonus points for teams making their opponents pass.
