View Full Version : Dominoes...not just for lining up to knock over. Seriously!

Apparently they're actually intended to be used in games similar to those played with playing cards.

Most domino games are blocking games, i.e. the objective is to empty one's hand whilst blocking the opponents. In the end, a score may be determined by counting the pips in the losing players' hands. In scoring games the scoring is different and happens mostly during gameplay, making it the principal objective.

Thanks to graphjam for alerting me about it.

Except for things that would actually help them on the outside.
