If you are fond of board games like cards and dominoes, then one of the digital versions of the latter, QQ Domino, is something that you might want to try. This game takes convenience up a notch, as it gives you the chance to play the said game without having to secure the actual chips, as you would just have to play it through a browser. Whether it be the old school, classic version, or the one that you play on the browser, what are some of the basics associated to playing dominoes that you should know? Let’s find out below.
Draw Opening Hand, Decide the Order
Each domino game starts out with 7 dominoes which you obtain from the bone yard, and then have them positioned on the table in such a way that the opponent cannot see what types of chips you have. From this, decide among yourselves who goes first. There are a lot of ways in order for you to determine the order in which you would perform, with the usual ones picking an extra tile with the highest value being the first, or using the tiles that you already have and adding their total value to see who has the highest. Revealing doubles and getting the highest double will also determine the first. Another method that you can use is to do simple coin flipping to determine who goes first.
Place the First Domino
Usually, the first domino is a double tile, which is that having the same number on either end, though you can’t really guarantee this to happen at all times. With that said, any tile can be used, and its orientation will not really count. Once you have done this, the rest of the game can then follow.
