THE FASCINATING GAME FOR ALL AGES FOR ALL THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS
The object of the game is to play all your tiles and have the
lowest score at the end of the game. Your score is counted by
the number of dots on the tiles remaining in your hand. The double
blank counts fifty points if caught in your hand so it is usually
played as soon as possible as the other players will be trying
to block the play of it. The game begins with each player drawing
an equal number of tiles from the "CHICKEN YARD". The
number of tiles drawn may vary from twenty tiles each for two
players to six tiles each for eight players. There are fifty five
tiles in the set and there usually is a "CHICKEN YARD"
which holds all the extra tiles to be drawn, only if you can't
play from your hand. You may only draw one tile, either playing
or passing. The player with the double nine in his hand plays
first, placing the tile in the center piece, then move to the
player to the left. The next six plays will be on the double nine,
filling it in the notches around the center piece, forming a double
"CHICKEN FOOT" as shown on the diagram. After this is
done, you may play anywhere you like on one of the six "CHICKENTOES"
until someone plays a double making a single "CHICKEN FOOT".
The next three plays must be made on this "CHICKENFOOT"
before anyone can play anywhere else. Then it is back to playing
on any "CHICKENTOES" until someone plays another "CHICKENFOOT"
When some one plays all their tiles or blocks the game ends, you
count the dots on the remaining tiles in your hand and record
the score. The tiles are reshuffled and the player holding the
double eight plays first. The the next hand is started with the
double seven, and continues down to the double blank ending the
game. Or if you like, you may play back up to the double nine,
If the double that is needed for a double "CHICKENFOOT"
is in the "CHICKEN YARD" you may go to the next double
or reshuffle all the tiles. It's a great game and if you have
any questions, please write us or call... have fun!
