Because Mexican Train is a strategy game, Mexican Train is best suited to adults and older children — over 8 years old is probably best. A game of Mexican Train can go on for some time, or you can play an abbreviated version. Mexican Train is a wonderful game for family get-togethers and holidays as it breeds fun competition and easy laughs. Mexican Train requires some concentration and strategy but not so much attention that you can't have enjoyable conversations (and trash talking) as you play. The game is pretty easy; you will be surprised at how quickly you become hooked!

Other rules to versions of this game go by the names Mexican Train, Mexican Express, Mexican Dominoes, and a game Hispanics call "Longana" (spelling?). They are all basically the same game and their rules can be found in books by Victor Lewis, Gary M. Grady & Suzanne Goldberg, and Mary D. Lankford, to name three. Roy and Katie Parsons of California developed and copyrighted a set of rules. Their game of Mexican Train is played with a double nine set for four players and a double twelve set if more than four persons are playing.
A game of Mexican Train dominoes uses the 91 dominoes of a double standard set. If there are four players, each player gets 15 dominoes, and five or six players get 12 dominoes each. The remaining dominoes go face-down in a pile known as the boneyard. From the double 12 domino in the center, each player starts a train by placing a domino with a 12 on it next to the double 12. During the first turn, a player may make as many moves as he can.
