A domino process is described combining an ene reaction between two alkynes and a Diels-Alder cycloaddition of the vinylallene formed. The process accounts for the thermally induced cycloisomerization of macrocyclic triynes and enediynes to give fused tetracycles in a stereoselective manner. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.
