Each player draws seven pieces. Any domino can be lead. The leader should be determined before the game starts and the lead at the beginning of each new hand, then progresses from right to left.
Players can play from either end of the first domino and in using the large sets, it is advisable to play from both sides and ends of first double.
When a player cannot play, he draws from the surplus until he secures a piece that will play. The same rules for going "domino" and for scoring apply as in "Muggins" except that 5s are not counted.
