dominoes game

Dominoes is a board game that can be considered as an extension of dice. Although its origin is supposed to be oriental and very ancient, it does not seem that the current form was known in Europe until the middle of the 18th century, when it was introduced by the Italians.

The player with the highest double starts the round (if 4 people play, the double 6 will always start). If none of the players have doubles, the player with the highest tile starts the round. From that moment on, the players will take turns playing in counterclockwise order.

The player who starts the round leads the hand. This is an important concept for domino strategy, since the player or pair that is «hand» usually has the advantage during the round.

On his turn, each player must place one of his dominoes on one of the 2 open ends, so that the points on one side of the domino match the points on the end where it is being placed. The doubles are placed crosswise to make it easier to find them.
