Dominoes are a popular game that can be played by one or more people. The rules vary, but usually the object of the game is to build a line of dominoes that ends with a total or some other condition. The players then score points for each domino that matches this condition. The first player to achieve this wins the game.
Dominoes can be made from any number of materials including wood and plastic. They are typically a flat thumb-sized rectangular block with a surface that is either blank or bears a pattern of dots, called pips, similar to the marks on dice. A complete set of dominoes consists of 28 such tiles.
A domino can be matched with another domino if the two share identical sides or if it has an end that is divisible by three or five (the open ends). Dominoes are usually played on a table, but can also be played in other ways. For example, some players play a scoring version of Dominos in which each player places a domino edge to edge against another with its matching end so that the sum of the ends is divisible by five or three, and one point is scored for each tile that meets this requirement.
While domino is a fun and entertaining game, it can have a positive impact on the lives of those who use it. This is because dominoes are often used as a metaphor for the way in which small actions can have large effects on one’s life. For example, once Jennifer Dukes Lee began to make her bed each day she found that it became easier for her to maintain a clean and organized home.
The term domino may also be applied to a system, such as the global financial or political systems, in which the collision of one domino leads to a chain reaction that causes other dominoes to fall. In the mechanical sense, dominoes can also be used as a mechanism to demonstrate causal relationships within a Rube Goldberg machine.
