Dominoes is a family of tile-based games played with rectangular "domino" tiles.
Each domino is a rectangular tile with a line dividing its face into two square ends.
Each end is marked with a number of spots (also called pips, nips, or dobs) or is blank.
The backs of the dominoes in a set are indistinguishable, either blank or having some common design.
The domino gaming pieces make up a domino set, sometimes called a deck or pack.
The traditional Sino-European domino set consists of 28 dominoes,
featuring all combinations of spot counts between zero and six.
A domino set is a generic gaming device, similar to playing cards or dice,
in that a variety of games can be played with a set. Source - Wikipedia
Jamaicans are amoung the "vibesiest" set of people on the planet and by that I mean they bring charisma and excitement to most anything they set their hands and hearts to and Dominoes is no exception. Jamaican people come up with the most spectacular moves to place emphasis on game-play, in ways that are nothing short of drama and excitement.
Jamaicans play a form of the "draw" style domino. Jamaican style domino games are full of drama and excitement and require a solid firm surface to be played on, since most players "dramatize" to a point where dominos literally "fly" off the board.
The scoring of Jamaican dominos varies. In the traditional scoring scheme - four (4) players play to give "Six love" - that is all four (4) players win games in order to "Nil" each other, any player of the four who does not win any round before a player reaches six(6) wins is said to have gotten "Nil" and in effect "Six love", Other variants of the scoring scheme include the same (0-6) concept but players "up" the limit from six(6) to ten or more (10+)..
In the above mentioned scoring, the game type would be "Cut-Throat" with a "every man for himself" attitude, which is one of the two types of donimo games that jamaicans love to play. The other would be "Partner", where players facing each other "partner-up" to nil the other two players facing each other around the domino table (board).
Each Domino pack comes with 28 domino tiles.
Note also that there are 7 pieces from blank (0) to six (6)
