Pai Gow, translating as ‘make nine’, originated in China several thousand years ago. Also known as Chinese Dominoes, this challenging and rewarding table game lets players create two hands out of four tiles and square off against the dealer.
Initially, Pai Gow can look confusing. However, you will only need to watch for a short time to realise that it is very similar to many card games but using tiles in place of cards.
Pai Gow is played with 32 tiles. 22 of these tiles form 11 Identical Pairs and the remaining 10 tiles form 5 Mixed Pairs.
