Domino is a game that is played with dominoes, small rectangular blocks with identifying marks on one side and blank or patterned sides on the other. It is similar to playing cards, except the dominoes are two times as long as wide and have a line running through them dividing them into squares of equal width (and thus equal spots or “pips”).
The game of Domino is popular worldwide. It is most common in the United States, but also found in Australia, France, Germany, India and other countries. It is a great social activity for children and adults alike.
Playing games with dominoes is an excellent way to build teamwork and cooperation between players. In fact, it’s so easy to play that many kids will start at a young age and get into the habit of playing together with dominoes regularly.
To play, players lay a domino at each end of the table. Then, players move their pieces to the ends of the table, one at a time, trying to match the dominoes’ exposed ends. If the numbers on the ends of the dominoes match, they’re “touched” and a point is scored.
Normally, the player that has the lowest number of points at the end of the round is the winner, but this is not always the case. In some versions, both partners must chip out and then the winner is the partner whose total points are the least at the end of the game.
In addition to playing dominoes, people use the term “domino” in a variety of other ways. For instance, they may refer to a domino as a “bone,” or as “pip,” or even as “card.”
When people play dominoes, they often use their fingers to pick up and move the dominoes around the table, allowing them to see the dominoes more clearly as they fall. This allows them to watch the movement of the tiles, and it helps them make sure that they haven’t accidentally picked up the wrong tile.
As a kid, Lily Hevesh loved dominoes. She started playing when she was 9 years old and continued to grow her collection as she got older.
She began posting videos of her domino setups online, and she soon became a professional domino artist with more than 2 million subscribers to her YouTube channel, Hevesh5. In this video, she shows us how she builds her mind-blowing installations.
The Domino Effect
When Hevesh first started creating her installations, she followed the same engineering-design process that she would for other projects. She thought about the purpose of her installation and brainstormed ideas. She then made test versions of each section to ensure they worked individually, before putting them all together. She then filmed each section in slow motion, so she could make adjustments as needed.
The Domino Effect has a lot to do with how people interact with each other, and how they behave. It’s a powerful force that can make people change their habits–even the ones they don’t think are connected to one another.
