If you’ve ever played dominos or met a domino enthusiast (and I don’t mean the pizza chain) then you know these guys and gals are pretty fanatical about their game. I grew up playing dominos in the Dominican Republic and I still enjoy the occasional game at home during barbecues and family gatherings. We even enjoy taking our dominos on the road and playing at the park.
If you haven’t played dominos, here’s a small description (courtesy of Wikipedia) of the game:
Dominoes (or dominos) is a game played with rectangular “domino” tiles. The domino gaming pieces make up a domino set, sometimes called a deck or pack. The traditional Sino-European domino set consists of 28 dominoes, colloquially nicknamed bones, cards, tiles, tickets, stones, or spinners. Each domino is a rectangular tile with a line dividing its face into two square ends. Each end is marked with a number of spots (also called pips, nips, or dobs) or is blank. The backs of the dominoes in a set are indistinguishable, either blank or having some common design. A domino set is a generic gaming device, similar to playing cards or dice, in that a variety of games can be played with a set.
We’ve made a set of four domino piece holders, perfect for turning any surface into a domino table. These piece holders allow you to place your domino pieces upright during gameplay, so that you can read all of your pieces at once and play better. Without a dedicated domino table or piece holders, you risk your pieces falling over (and your opponents see what pieces you have).
We made these domino piece holders out of solid wood, and can personalize each with the recipient’s initials. We offer these pieces raw, or stained to your color taste. So tell us, how would you personalize yours?
