# The Basics of Domino

Domino is a family of tile-based games. The tile pieces are rectangular with two square ends that are marked with a number of spots. The object of the game is to match up as many tiles as you can in a row. If your group matches up all of the same-colored tiles, you win.

## Rules

The Rules of Domino are a set of rules that govern the playing of the game. The main objective is to create cells (half a domino tile). For every cell created, the player scores one point. The graphic illustration below shows some examples of cell formation and tactics for Game Option 1. A blank tile is a wild card. It can connect to any other tile but not to itself.

## Variations

There are many different varieties of the domino game, and each has its own unique set of rules. In the basic game, players each get a single tile and try to match it with their opponent’s tile in a row, or “line” of play. In some variations, players are allowed to place doubles anywhere along the line, while others allow players to double only on certain tiles. The player with the highest score wins the game.

## Origins

The game of domino is a popular pastime. Its history dates back to the eighteenth century. French prisoners of war brought the game to Italy, where it was a hit. It soon spread throughout Europe and eventually reached the Americas. Today, domino is a popular game played in pubs and drinking taverns.

## Variations of the Draw Game

There are two types of draw games: single game and double game. Single game involves two players, while double game involves more than one player. In single game, the player scores when all of their tiles have the same value. However, double game involves two players, so one player must have the same value tile at both ends of the line of play in order to win the game. The Double game can also be called the muggins game. In this game, a player scores two points if three of the same color tiles are in the same hand.

## Rules of Double Nine

The Rules of Double Nine domino are simple: place six matching tiles on top of an initial double, and play the remaining nine tiles. The highest double is then placed face up in the middle of the table. You should ask the other players about their Double 9s and Double 8s. The first player to locate a Double 9 is the first to take a turn. After that, the game proceeds to the left of the first player.

## Rules of Falling Dominoes

A game of dominoes can be incredibly fun and engaging, but did you know that some dominoes will fall over due to the forces of gravity? A researcher from Quebec who studied civil engineering, David Cantor, set out to investigate this phenomenon. He teamed up with physicist Kajetan Wojtacki, a member of the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.
