Dominoes

Dominoes, game played by two or more persons, with 28 small, flat, rectangular blocks (also called dominoes) made of ivory, bone, plastic, or wood. The face of each domino is divided in half by a line or ridge, with a combination of spots on each side. In the more commonly used set, dominoes are numbered downward from 6-6, 6-5, and so on to the blank 0-0. After selecting pieces, each player sets the dominoes on edge so that they cannot be seen by opponents. The first player places one piece faceup on the table. The second player must place a match- that is, one end of the piece played must have the same number of spots as one end of the piece already laid down. The next player in turn must play a match on one of those dominoes. A player who has no piece to match either end passes, and the next player takes a turn. The game proceeds until one of the players wins by setting out the last of his or her dominoes, or until no player can match at either end. The game originated in China in ancient times.

domino effect

domino effect (dòm´e-nÖ´ î-fèkt´) noun
A cumulative effect produced when one event sets off a chain of similar events: the domino effect of increasing the speed limit in one of several contiguous states.

[So called from the fact that a row of dominoes stood on end will fall in succession if the first one is knocked over.]
