Domino games: How to play
Dominoes is played with rectangular tiles that are divided into two square ends. Each square has a number from 1 – 6 on it. (In some versions for younger children, the numbers are replaced with pictures.) The aim of the game is to connect the tiles on the tabletop by matching the identical numbers. Each chain has two ends, so you have some options when it comes to selecting your tiles. Based on the tiles on the table and the ones in your tray, you might be able to make some guesses as to which moves will put your opponent at a disadvantage. Whoever can’t place any tiles, will have to draw additional ones from the reserve.
Domino tiles are also famously used for another game. The tiles are placed upright on the slim end, one in front of the other so as to form a long row. The tiles are positioned fairly close together, so that when you push over one tile, it will hit and topple the next one, and the next one, and so forth, until all the tiles have fallen over. This is what the ‘domino effect’ in named for: when one thing falls, it causes others to follow. The domino toppling game has led to lots of world records and record attempts featuring complex constructions made out of hundreds of thousands of domino tiles.
