Different Styles of Domino Games


There are several different styles of domino games. In this article, we’ll discuss 5s-and-threes, Acrylic dominoes, Bonesticks, Matching and scoring games, and more. For more information, see our dominoes guide. Listed below are some of the most popular styles:


The 5s-and-3s domino is a game of chance. Each player receives a deck of dominoes and tries to place them so that two of their ends are adjacent. The doubles are typically placed across the end of the chain. The tiles that follow must be laid perpendicularly to the double and touch in the middle. When all four pieces are laid together, they form a snake-like shape and must be played to win the game.

Acrylic dominoes

Acrylic dominoes are an excellent way to display your collection. These domino sets come in a beautiful acrylic box that can be used to store or display your other heirlooms. The dominos measure 5″ by 2.5″ and the container is 8.75″ x 3.5″ x 5.5″.


In the game Bonesticks in Domino, the player is tasked with destroying his opponents’ bone sticks, or bones, before they reach their destination. In order to make these bones, players use a table saw with a blade that sticks out a little. They then lay the bones out on the board with the corresponding bone from the set. Once the bones are laid out, the players can play the game.

Matching and scoring games

There are many varieties of the matching and scoring game of domino. The main goal of this game is to lay down tiles that have a corresponding number of pips. A tile with three or more pips is considered a wild tile, and the player who does not match the number of pips on the blank side is called a bogus player. These two situations can occur in any game, but they are particularly prevalent in domino games.

Bidding games

In domino bidding games, players attempt to predict the number of points to score in order to win the game. Some games score with marks instead of points, and the game ends when one player has more points than the other team. In general, the team that has more points wins, while the team that does not have enough points forfeits the game. There are many variations of bidding games. Listed below are the most common types of bidding games.
