Domino is a type of game that involves laying out tiles to form a pattern or shape. It can be played by a single player or in teams of two or more. The tiles are made from a variety of materials including wood, porcelain, glass, ceramic clay, and metals such as brass or pewter.
A domino set consists of a group of tiles, usually 28 pieces, that are divided into four groups (ends) each with two pips on one side. The pips are either black or white, and the tiles can be inlaid or painted. They can also be carved out of stone or other material such as ivory, bone, or silver lip ocean pearl oyster shell (MOP).
The most common sets are double-six sets which represent each possible face of a six-sided die thrown twice. In the case of a two-player game, each player draws seven tiles from a stock or “boneyard.”
These tiles are shuffled together in front of each player so they can see their own tiles but not their opponents’ tiles. The first player chooses a domino with a value that matches the value of the tile they are holding, then the second player chooses another domino with a matching value and continues to do so until both players have played all of their tiles or the game ends in a draw.
Some variants of this game have additional rules, such as in Five-Up, where the doubles serve as spinners. In other games, the lines of play are blocked for geometrical reasons and there are special rules for placing curved tiles on the board.
To make a good domino setup, Hevesh says, one of the most important things to keep in mind is the law of gravity. She says that a knocked-over domino will fall toward the ground, which can cause it to crash into the next domino in a chain reaction.
For example, if she puts the first domino on the ground, it will take several minutes for it to tumble before falling down and hitting the next one. Then it will drop onto the next and so on until all of the dominoes have fallen.
The chain of events that occur after the first domino has been knocked down is what creates the excitement of a domino game. Hevesh’s most elaborate displays take several minutes to fall, but they are worth the wait.
In addition, Hevesh has set a Guinness World Record for the most dominoes toppled in a circular arrangement, with 76,017 tiles. She says that the laws of physics are key to her success, and she uses the force of gravity to create her designs.
