"Of course I have played outdoor games. I once played dominoes in an open air cafe in Paris." ~ Oscar Wilde (Irish Poet, Novelist, Dramatist and Critic, 1854-1900)Second only to Scattegories, dominoes must be Nyssa's favorite game. She learned to play while in high school and now plays with friends in person or online. I have never really understood the scoring or the rational with this game, therefore I am a pathetic opponent. Just listen to the object of the game:
"In practically all domino games the players strive to block the game so that others cannot make a play; or to make ends when added together equal some given number or multiple of that number, or to so play that the ends of the line will show "spots" of equal value. A player goes "Domino" when he plays his last piece before any opponent."I understand the last sentence, otherwise it is as clear as mud. So if you play dominoes and play well, I am very impressed.
