What is Domino?


A domino is a small rectangular wooden or plastic block, usually double-sided, with dots or markings that resemble those on dice. A set of dominoes is used for playing a variety of games. The term domino may also refer to a person or situation that influences others in a similar manner to how the dominoes fall in a game of the same name.

Dominoes are most often played by two people. The players are alternately allowed to draw dominoes from a stock, or boneyard, and then play them on the table according to their values. The game ends when one player can no longer play a domino or when both players draw all of their remaining bones. The partners whose combined sum of all the spots on their remaining dominoes is the least are declared winners.

The earliest known manual written about dominoes was the Xuan He Pai Pu, from 1341-1437. The manual was compiled in China. The dominoes in the book were arranged by color, which is how they are still displayed today.

Domino is a popular board game, in which each player tries to place all of his or her dominoes on the table before the opponent does. The players then score points by completing combinations of three or more adjacent tiles, either vertically, horizontally, diagonally or back and forth.

There are many different types of domino games, and each one uses a different scoring system. Typically, each domino has a value of one to six based on the number of dots or marks on it. A domino with no dots is called a blank or a wild domino and can be used to form part of any combination. The most common domino sets are double-six, double-nine and double-12. There are also “extended” sets that include more than the basic 28 dominoes, such as double-18, double-15 and double-12.

In most cases, the first player begins a hand by placing the first domino in a line with its matching end. This is sometimes referred to as setting, leading or downing the bone. Once a domino is played, the other players must follow suit by placing a matching end on top of it. The resulting chain of dominoes is called a tally or a run.
