Dominoes are a family of tile-based games. Also known as gaming pieces, dominoes are rectangular tiles with two square ends marked with number spots. A player must place all of the dominoes in a row, one after another, and in such a manner that they fall in the right order to win the game.
Dominoes are a popular board game with a long history. The most common set contains twenty-one tiles that represent the outcome of two six-sided dice. The object of the game is to get as many tiles of the same color and shape as possible. These tiles must be adjacent and form a specified sum.
There are many variations of domino games, and the rules for each are different. For example, you can play a race to 100 in which the first player to play all of their dominoes wins, or a race to play a certain number of games without scoring any points. You can also play games where the winner has the highest score at the end of a series. In many cases, you can play endlessly until one person has all the tiles, but the game may end in a blocked game if no one can play.
The basic game of domino is played by two players, and players begin by choosing seven tiles from a set of double-six tiles. The players then proceed to play matching tiles, usually end-to-end. In some games, doubles can be placed anywhere along the line, and some even let players block their opponent’s line of play.
The word domino derives from the Latin word dominus. Later, it was shortened to domino in English, French, and Scottish spellings. The word originally meant a hooded costume worn during a masquerade. Later, it came to mean a game of dominoes.
The origins of domino are still a mystery, but some scholars believe it emerged in Italy sometime in the eighteenth century. Later, the game spread throughout Europe, and in the 19th century it reached China. Since then, the game has become popular in pubs and cafes worldwide. The European game differs from the Chinese game in several ways, but both games have similar rules. Various variations of the game, such as jacks and Mexican trains, have evolved over the centuries.
