Essential Domino Rules to Know

The game of dominoes, as we know it, is ancient. According to research from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, this game was created around 200 years before Christ, in China. This makes it nearly two thousand years old. Quite old, isn't it?

The rules of dominoes, however, have been developed over the years. If you are starting to learn about this game and want to know more, then you are in the right article. We will explain the rules of dominoes, along with valuable tips to impress your rivals.

Domino Rules and Tips

The rules of dominoes are easy to understand and remember. So, don't worry. Below, we will list the main rules of dominoes that you should know as a beginner. Additionally, it is important to note that these rules apply to both the physical version and the digital and online versions for computers and mobile devices.

  • The first part of the rules of dominoes that a beginner player should understand is that the participant who starts the game already has an advantage compared to the opponent. This is because they choose the first piece to be placed on the table, allowing them to influence the numbers in their favor.
  • The rules of dominoes dictate that each game is traditionally played between two people. However, it can be played between two pairs, totaling four people. Each player has 7 pieces, which should be distributed randomly.
  • The person who plays first is the one with a double six, meaning a piece with two 6s, or the piece with the highest total value.
  • Moves are made in a counterclockwise direction, and each player plays once per turn.
  • The main objective of the game is to match the ends of the pieces with pieces of the same value. For example, if the free end on the table is a 5, and you have a piece with a 5 and a 2, you can connect the two 5s.
  • If a player does not have pieces that fit on the table, they must draw new pieces from the pile called the “dormant pile.”

Tips and Strategies

With the main rules of dominoes clarified, let's move on to some tips and strategies for how to play!

  • Be proactive and aggressive: a strategy that, although aggressive, is still allowed by the rules of dominoes is to be very proactive. This means putting pressure on your opponent, making them make mistakes and increasing your chances of winning. You can do this through sequences of moves that corner your rival and block numbers that you know they have.
  • Keep your pieces with varied numbers: this means using pieces with repeated numbers as soon as possible, including those with high numbers. For example, if you have a piece with both sides showing 5, use it at the first opportunity you get. This way, you guarantee the high points it offers and avoid being left with a piece of two repeated numbers. Although this is not part of the rules of dominoes, this tip should be!
