Teach patterns, math, and strategy with this traditional favorite tabletop game!
Dominoes is a classic game that has been around for decades. This simple matching game teaches patterns, math skills, and socialization. In addition to playing the game, people like to stand the pieces on end in patterns or lines, tip them over, and see what happens!
Enhance Cognitive Skills
Playing dominoes is fun, yet challenging. Students need to quickly recognize patterns to play the appropriate tile. Strategy comes into play as the dominoes start to dwindle, forcing students to think critically and make tactful decisions. Players also learn to anticipate opponent moves and plan for them accordingly!
How to Play
The object of traditional dominoes is to place all your tiles first. Start by evenly distributing tiles among players. They take turns playing a domino that has the same number of pips as an open ended domino already in play.
Advanced players can quickly survey the table to see what tiles have already been played, giving them an idea of what the other players may have in their hands. If a player has a four-pip tile and sees that the other 7 have already been played, playing the tile with the four-pip end out will guarantee no one else can play off of that tile.
28-tile set is made of strong, solid hardwood and is engraved with colorfast finish. For 2 to 4 players, ages 7 and up.
