Dominoes is a series of geometric tile-based board games, more commonly referred to as dominoes, played with numbered wooden chess pieces. Each domino is generally a square tile with a flat, rectangular edge separating its face from the square end of the board. All the squares are either completely white or colored, though some are both. The sides of the board are blank or have small numbers painted on them. There are four types of domino sets to choose from.
The most common type of domino in use today is the wood-based Domino Game Set. Dominoes are made in many different sizes, each with its own unique look and feel. The biggest sets are made of large, heavy wooden pieces that weigh a great deal. These sets are usually played on larger tables that can accommodate even the largest of domino sets. Wooden dominoes are also available in smaller, lighter sets which are more easily handled by children.
Wooden domino sets are usually distinguished from one another by the number of empty squares on the board. The more empty squares a set has, the harder it is to win; therefore, a large number can signify a weak set. Some sets may contain a bone or tooth combination, which adds to the game play. A bone combination will cause an extra domino to fall when it is rolled over a domino already rolled. Dominoes that have teeth are known to be harder to roll than dominoes that don’t.
Dominoes that contain teeth are often purchased as part of larger sets packaged together for easier winning. Included in these sets are normally three domino sets of a total number of twelve. When you purchase these sets as a complete set, you will receive a sheet of cardboard that has a small hole cut into it. This card has the number of the domino set on it and instructions for the exact game play. The hole provided allows the person purchasing the set to indicate which particular set they would like to play with their friends or family.
It is possible to purchase domino sets that will allow the user to alter the number of dominoes that fall when they are rolled. Some people like to use the number twelve but find themselves missing out on playing with their partners. There are also those people who will play with domino sets but find them to be boring to play with. They can be easily changed by adding or removing tiles.
Sometimes, games will have players doubling up on certain tiles or on particular dominoes, sometimes a player will play one hand for a length of time and then switch to another, or maybe they will double up on either playing tip. When this happens, it is very easy for a player to end up not having enough time to play all of the dominoes that they would like. This problem can be solved in one simple way. Domino tiles are numbered with the letter of the players’ team on one side and the number of points they earn on the other side. After every game, players may change their domino tiles to the opposite teams’ tiles. Making this simple adjustment will allow players to continue enjoying the game at anytime, instead of stopping to think about where they will place their dominoes for another round.
