From general principles to advanced skills, this fully illustrated winner's guide takes you through every aspect of the game:

Learn what constitutes a suit, scoring procedures, and how to add your domino to the "skeleton," or developing structure.

Special tips, including the Three Laws of Dominotics, greatly improve your chances of winning.

Develop the skills to analyze your hand and lead off - plus master Cover, Repeat and Square strategies.

Understand how your position affects your game plan, how to play doubles and when to jam a game.

From the author's Preface to the Second Edition:

This new edition expands upon the previous information in several ways.

First, it adds a new section called "The First Tile" where I systematically walk you through the choices and decisions to be made when making your first play of the game.

Second, I added a few more stories to my favorite chapter of the book: Chapter 16 "The Three Doors (and other stories)." I believe even highly experienced players will learn a trick or two from reading them!

Third, I added a short section on the Mathematics of Dominoes. This is a subject that may not necessarily help you win games, but should tickle your brain and enlighten you about the complexities of Dominoes.

Finally, strictly for your amusement, there's a section on solitaires, riddles, and games using the domino tiles."
