The Basics of Dominoes


Dominoes are a family of tile-based games. Basically, dominoes are rectangular tiles with square ends and number spots. Players can place one domino on top of another to score points. The aim of the game is to collect the highest number of spots in a row before the other players can claim it. Once you’ve completed a row, you can move on to the next row. If you manage to make more than one hundred points, you win.

Game rules

The game rules for domino are easy to follow and can help you have fun while playing the game. Each player must place at least one tile on the game board. When two adjacent tiles match, a double or triple is formed. If two tiles do not match, one player may take back the tile and play again. The winner of the game is the player who matches more tiles than his or her opponent.


There are many variants of domino, each with its own rules. One major variation is the line of play, which refers to the layout of tiles in the playing area. Most domino games begin with a single tile and the objective is to build up a line of tiles, typically end to end. In some variants, players may block the line of play in one direction or the other.

Size of set

There are many things to consider before choosing the right size set of dominos. The size of the table you are using, how many people will be playing and how much flat space is available should all be considered. A small table may require a smaller size set while a large table will allow you to play with larger dominos. Also, some domino games require you to hold the dominoes in your hand and this may require a larger size set.

Meaning of marks on dominoes

The dots and marks on dominoes are known as “pips.” These marks are also used to denote other places on dice. For example, the four of spades has four pips, while the eight of diamonds has eight pips. You can find more information about pips and their meaning by reading the dictionary definition.

Falling dominoes

Falling dominoes is a classic game that requires strategy and skill. To play, you stack up dominoes in succession to create a domino run. When you place a domino on top of another domino, the dominos in that row will fall in a sequence and start a chain reaction. This phenomenon is known as the domino effect. Some people compete in domino toppling competitions, also known as domino rallies.

Origin of game

The origin of dominoes is a mystery, though there is some evidence that the game was invented in China around 1120 AD. The Chinese Emperor Hui Tsung may have been among the first to play it, and the game was circulated in other regions by imperial order.
