French Dominoe Word Game

A suggestion for a variant on dominoes which could help you learn French or help young children to learn to read is that instead of normal dominoes you have words where when dominoes are stuck together, they must match with the last letter of one word and the first letter of another word.

Provided you choose 7 letters and carefully select words in such a way that there's every combination of start and end letters, you can use words so that the game play is identical to normal dominoes.

For example:

MM

RR

SS

EE

NN

TT

PP

madam

rigoler

sacs

échelle

non

T-shirt
