Cadomino begins with all dominoes spread out on the table with the animal faces visible. The cards are in a pile, face-down. A card is turned over to show an animal (starting point), a color (ending point), and the gift to be found. To find the animal hiding the gift, players silently work it out on their own. Each player follows the movement of the animals to arrive at the desired color. Once the animal has been identified, the fastest player places their finger on that animal’s square and the domino is flipped over! If it’s the right animal, the gift is hidden behind it and the player wins the card!
