If you’ve never heard of dominoes, they’re a family of tile-based games. Each domino tile is a square with two square ends marked with a number of spots, called spots. As the game progresses, you’ll need to collect all of your spots, and try to place them on your opponent’s turn. If you succeed, you’ll earn points and advance to the next level.
Chinese domino games
Chinese domino games are a popular family activity that can be played by two people, or even more people when the game is played in pairs. The game is played with domino tiles, which are typically double-six in size. Each tile has one or more spots, or pips, listed on its side. Most tiles have six pips, while some have blank pips. The rank of a domino tile is its total value, so a tile with more pips is considered to be heavier than one with less pips.
The game’s name derives from the fact that the Chinese name domino literally means long cape worn by a priest. It is believed that Chinese dominoes were originally designed to represent all of the combinations possible with two dice. In fact, Chinese dominoes are also often referred to as dotted cards because they don’t have any blank faces. Because of this, Chinese dominoes were traditionally used for trick-taking games, like the traditional card game rummy. For example, the Western five-3 domino has five spots while the 5 of clubs has six spots.
In a trick-taking game, a player must win a particular amount of tricks to cover his initial bid. These games often involve a partner, and are similar to card games. Players take turns placing one card from their hand into play during a single trick. During each trick, players are evaluated and the person who has the most tricks wins. While this is a standard strategy for card games, trick-taking games are often more complex than other types of card games.
In a trick-taking game, the highest value of a tile is the winning tile. Players start by drawing single dominos. The player with the highest value is the first to shake the domino, and the other players follow suit. This process repeats until a winning player is made. In a game of dominoes, each player has seven tricks, and the player who takes the highest value tile wins a trick.
