Tri-Ominos was a game we often played when I was a kid. It was a variant of dominoes using triangular tiles. Each triomino was in the shape of a triangle, each point of the triangle had a number (most often from 0-5), and each triomino had a unique combination of numbers.

Valid play of a triomino was similar to that of a domino in that the sides contacting each other must have matching numbers; the main difference was that two numbers must match instead of just one, and the number in each corner must match the corner it faces; a side with a 1 and a 2 may have the two numbers on opposite corners from the side the player was attempting to match. Points were scored based on the numbers on the tile played and when special placements were made.
