Moon, n 42 !!! Have You Tried
A Big Howdy To Our
42 , Moon and Good Old-Fashioned Dominoes Friends Located In
42, like Shoot-the-Moon, is a bidding/trick-taking game like spades and pinochle, but played using dominoes in place of regular cards. In Texas42, you also have to catch certain count dominoes during the play of the 7 trick hands as well as win tricks. The total count in a hand adds up to 35 and each trick caught is worth 1 for a total of 42 and that is the name of the game. We call going low or nil, Nel-lo in 42. High bidder names trumps or calls a special contract such as Nel-lo, follow me, plunge, or 7's. Any combinations of the special contracts may be played as agreed upon by the players at the table or play barebones (no special contracts).
In 1996 a man named Curtis Cameron changed Texas42 for the benefit of all mankind by designing a computer version of the game he calls Win42. The game is has the true flavor of the game of Texas42 as played in dominoes halls and in parlors and kitchens across the land. Win42 is part of the WinDominoes games Mr. Cameron designed and built a web site for so that they can be played online against other players. You will find his site at www.CCdominoes.com. There are free trial versions of Win42, WinDominoes, and now WinMoon for Shoot-the-Moon enthusiasts. The free trial versions never have to be upgraded to continue using them and updates to them when they come out are free as well. The trial versions of each game differ slightly as to what the full version offers, but no doubt if you are a Bones Player, there will be one or more of the games you will want to purchase the full versions of. They really are that good.
The first time you play the WinDominoes, WinMoon, or Win42 games you will see how enjoyable the full rich textures and the definition of the playing pieces make for the absolutely best computer dominoes game anywhere that can be played online in a lobby you can connect to tables from, or offline on a computer against computer bot players. The software for these games is rather easy to figure out how to use with little help needed. The trial versions work and do not expire. If you have a problem connecting to tables, you will have the same problem with the full versions as you do with the free versions. If you need assistance we can help you with game problems. There has only been a very few people we could not get set up and playing.

Unlike a lot of the other sites and software you can use to message and voice with, the host site of the Dominoes Hall Online, does not install data mining bots that hog your computers connection resources . Data mining is not as benign as it once was. Has your system slowed down a lot lately? Do you have more of a problem maintaining a connection than you used to? You may be being weighted down by adware. It's not just cookies that is getting installed by adware sites now. These critters report back to the site that implanted them unknowingly in your Pc. That hogs up connection speed. You may have from 5 to 140 of these things and not even know it. None of our sites has ever attempted to install an adware or spy-bot type of program on my computer. It has nothing running in the background that you are unaware of. I have not even had a cookie offered to my computer while surfing within the DhO. That is why there are so many people that can use the software that can't use other messenger/pager and chat software programs.
You will find Links to other dominoes sites here as well. The menu bar at the top is a treasure-chest of links for the site we use to play online and resources for other dominoes sites. We hope that you have the time of your Dominoes Playing Life here. You can have your old friends meet up with you and time and distance are no longer barriers they once were to playing them. You can meet up with your new Dominoes, Moon, n 42 Friends you meet here too! The fun and excitement of being able to voice while playing combined with the challenge of tough competition couple up to make for a really terrific place to play dominoes, moon or 42-online.
Good Luck ... on the Tables ... and in Life and most of all Have Fun at both.
