The Basics of Dominoes


Dominoes are a family of tile-based games. They are rectangular tiles with square ends that have numbers that represent how many spots are on each side. The objective is to place them in order so that their neighboring tiles fall on top of each other. Those with the most points win the game.

Game rules

The basic rules of domino are simple, yet important, to understand and follow. The first rule states that each player must place at least one tile. Doubles and triples can only be joined if the tiles are of the same size and are adjacent. Players must place tiles adjacent to one another and must match them up to form sets. The player who has the most tiles at the end of the game wins the game.

The game is played with seven tiles. The first player places a tile. Each player alternately places the tiles until the line stretches to the end of the table. The winning player is the player whose tile has more dots than his opponent’s.


There are many different types of materials that are used in dominoes. They can be made of different types of wood or plastic. Traditionally, dominoes have been made of wooden blocks. However, in the last century, the domino industry has turned to petroleum-based plastic known as Parkesine. Modern Chinese dominoes are often made of shiny black plastic. If you are planning on buying a domino set, consider investing in a wooden wine rack instead of plastic.

Other materials that can be used for domino jewelry are cigar box labels, miscellaneous papers, and paintbrushes. You can also add vintage-style buttons or sequins to your domino jewelry to make it look more beautiful. However, you must be sure that the materials you choose are not too fragile or you might end up ruining the jewelry.


There are many different variations of the domino game. The basic rules of the game are the same as for regular cards: a player must have a set of double-six tiles and must be able to draw seven tiles from it. The first player extends the line of play by placing a tile on it, then the remaining players alternately extend their line until only one tile remains. When all the tiles are played, the winner is the player with the highest pip count.

One such variation is Thierry Denoual. This is a version of domino that is played with double-six dominos. Unlike regular dominos, the ‘double-six’ game tiles are bent in a 120-degree angle. These tiles can connect to one another to form one large circle.

Scoring system

A scoring system for dominoes has been developed to determine the winner of a domino game. The scoring system is based on the number of dots in a player’s hand, and the winning player earns points proportional to the number of dots in their opponent’s hand. The scoring system for dominoes is quite straightforward.

Traditionally, a player wins a round of dominos if he makes the sum of all the spots on the other player’s hand add up to a multiple of five. To do this, he adds up the pips of the dominoes in his hand, and then rounds these pips up or down to the next multiple of five. In the event that he/she gets a tie, the player’s score is based on the number of tiles remaining, with points being deducted if the other player has a higher hand.
