A game of Chromino at the end of play.

Chromino is a 2001 board game designed by Louis Abraham, for 2 to 7 players. The game is similar to the classic game of dominoes, but uses colours instead of numbers. Five colours are used: red, blue, purple, yellow and green. Each Chromino piece contains three coloured squares, and all 80 distinct combinations of colours are used (some are symmetrical with each other). There are also five "wild card" pieces, with a yin-yang symbol in the middle, where the middle square may be used as any colour.

Each piece has eight square edges. At least two edges must touch a piece already on the board, and squares of different colours may not touch each other. The game begins with a randomly chosen piece placed on the board. On his/her turn, each player places a piece on the board. If he/she cannot place a piece, he/she must take a new one. The first player to run out of pieces wins.
