Are there different rules for Mexican Train dominoes?
If a player is unable to start their train in their first turn, they simply put their train marker next to their slot. If, in a later turn, the player draws a domino that enables them to start their train, they can only play this one domino and remove their marker.

Can you end Mexican Train with a double domino?
If they cannot “finish the double”, they must draw a domino, and if they cannot play it on the double, their own train becomes “public”. Single and double blanks are considered wilds.
