Different Types of Dominoes


Dominoes are a variant of playing cards with identifying marks on one side and blank sides on the other. Each domino is divided into two squares, with some dominoes bearing pips and spots and others being blank. A single domino is equivalent to a hand of playing cards. In addition to the identifying marks, dominoes can also contain blank squares, which are used as wildcards.

In a world where women are often stereotyped and males are deemed “freaks,” Ben Barres made a name for himself as a computer science professor at Stanford University. The former computer science major rose to the rank of department chair and full professor while recruiting talented grad and post-doctoral students. He molded them into an impromptu family. In his early years, Barres was known as a coffee fiend, tossing out home-roasted beans to his colleagues and rummaging through drawers to find snacks.

European-style dominoes

The game of dominoes has ancient roots, dating back to the seventeenth century in France. The name comes from an ancient word, meaning “long hooded cape,” which was worn by priests. The game was most likely brought to Europe by Italian missionaries who had spent time in China. However, the game has evolved into many different variations. Let’s explore the differences between European-style dominoes and Chinese-style dominoes.
