Which game number? I cannot find that game in your history.
The last domino game you won.

It's all in the game that this game can be frustrating. Is has some luck factors and then you can have bad luck... If you cannot handle that you need to play abstract games.

abstract games ????????????
I just want to play ordinary dominoes as you play in the pub.
Having all the 5's then finding the game closed when you could play is not just bad luck, its a major flaw in the game.

Maybe in your opinion. Everybody plays dominoes differently and we have chosen a specific ruleset. So read the rules first.

I like all the games on this site but my preferable one is domino. I am writing this post for the attention of the administrators of the domino game.

At present the game is played on 4 rounds and that player who after 4 rounds have the least points is declared the winner. Fine. This means that even if both players win 2 rounds each the winner is that player who has the least points.

However, I have an idea regarding the points, which in my opinion is more fair. What i suggest is that like in tennis, a match is played on 5 rounds instead of 4 but once a player wins 3 rounds the match stops there.

Food for thought for the administrators.

Thanks for the game and keep up the good work.

It's not about the rounds you win, but about the points you get. Winning 3 rounds with 10 points difference and losing one round with 31 points difference is an overall loss. No point in making it 5 rounds for that.

I know that tppfnat, but what I am suggesting is that the game is not based on the points but on the number of rounds won.
