Dissected Dominoes
by Michael Keller

 

1. Locate the placement of all 28 dominoes         2. Locate the placement of all 28 dominoes
 

3. Locate the placement of all 28 dominoes         4. Locate the placement of all 28 dominoes

 

A standard set of double-six dominoes forms 7x8 rectangles, but only the numbers have been recorded. Your task is to reconstruct the placement of the 28 dominoes. Four separate challenges are presented. A list of the dominoes is included below to help you keep track of the dominoes you have placed. Alternately, if you happen to have them around the house, you can use an actual set of dominoes to help you solve these puzzles.

Please note: The devious puzzle maker has faced all the non-symmetrical dot groupings (2, 3 and 6) consistently in the same direction to obscure the true orientation of the tiles. In your solutions, dot patterns may be differently angled from what you see above.
