# Domino – A Game of Skill and Strategy

Domino is a game of skill and strategy that can be played by two or more players. It is easy to learn and can be extremely addictive. The first player to place all their dominoes wins the game. The game is very popular in many parts of the world and has a long history.

A domino is a small rectangular tile with numbers or symbols printed on each end. There are also blank sides and the dominoes can be colored black or white. The numbering system is based on the number of dots or spots that appear on each end of the domino. The earliest known reference to dominoes dates back to the 1120 CE Chinese text Chu sz yam (Investigations on the Traditions of All Things).

While the game is played in a variety of ways, there are a few basic rules. One is that a domino must touch another domino on its own side or on the other side of a pair of matching doubles. When a domino touches a pair of matching dominoes, the player scores points by laying a domino with its exposed ends showing any multiple of five. A player scores the most points when they are able to score all of the numbers on both exposed ends of a domino.

The game can be very fast paced and exciting to play. A player must always be on the lookout for a way to build up their score and win the game. If a player cannot make any progress, they must pass their turn to the other player. This is done to prevent a dominant player from building up too large of a lead over the other players.

The most popular games of domino are the Block and Draw game. In the Block game, each player takes turns placing a domino on the table in such a way that it covers up any other dominoes that are already on the table. In the Draw game, players have fewer dominoes initially and must pick up a sleeping domino when they cannot play it. They must continue to do this until all the dominoes have been played or they are unable to add any more to their sets.

Domino is used to create artistic designs such as curved lines, grids that form pictures, and 3D structures like towers and pyramids. It can also be used to train children in mathematics and motor skills. In addition, it is used by architects and planners to build cities, streets, and houses.

In the early 1970s, Domino’s Pizza was founded by Tom Monaghan in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Monaghan believed that the key to the company’s success was putting franchises in locations near college campuses. This helped the business to grow quickly and it was a strategy that the company stuck with when new CEO David Brandon came on board in 1997. Brandon implemented changes such as a relaxed dress code and new employee training programs. He spoke with employees directly to find out what they wanted from the company and this helped Domino’s to refocus their business.
