Overview

Have you ever purchased a book on games only to find that you have the same old run-of-the-mill rules that you learned as a child? Dominoes Plus is 100+ exciting games, 90% of them original.

A professional writer explains to you the complete and detailed set of rules for each game. Similar games are grouped into topical chapters, with 25 illustrations for reference (that you will remember). An appendix provides a user-friendly cross-reference for finding a game to match ages and number of players.

The author begins with a history of dominoes, and throughout the book introduces the topic of Dominoforms, which explain typical features and structures of tile games. They are at once both familiar in their general styles of play and concise in their treatment.

Breathe new life into those tired old checkers, card, and dice games as you combine them with dominoes in interesting new games—the second half of the book describes many such games. Dominoes Plus is a guidebook as much as a reference. If you don’t have someone at hand eager to play, the author offers ideas on how to find a game.
