# Spinners and Variations of Dominoes

You may be surprised to know that the domino was invented in China in 1120 CE. According to the Chu sz yam, also known as Investigations on the Traditions of Things, dominoes were first presented to Emperor Hui Tsung and then circulated throughout the empire. The resulting standardization has led to many variations. In this article, we will explore these different varieties and their uses. However, before we move on to Spinners and Variations, let’s start with some history of dominoes.

## Rules

The objective of a game of domino is to eliminate all of the dominoes in a player’s hand. The winner yells “Domino!” if he is the first to do so. A game ends when a player is unable to add a tile. To determine who wins a game, a player must add up the total of pips on all of the dominoes in his or her hand. The highest-ranking dominoes in the game are trumps, and the first to do so is the winner.

## Sets

A set of dominoes is a set of rectangular, squared gaming pieces used to play the game of dominoes. The game can be played with either two or more sets of dominoes. One set consists of 28 dominoes, while another set may contain more than twenty-eight dominoes. Dominoes are rectangular, squared tiles that have a common design and are half-thick.

## Variations

Despite the fact that the game has many variations, the basic principles of domino remain the same. When a player leads with a double-six, the others play the remaining spots and the loser subtracts the winner’s total from their own. After every round, the loser rounds to a multiple of five and declares the winner. If the loser has the lowest total, they win. If the loser does not, he subtracts the winner’s total from his own and wins the game.

## Spinners

If you love to play the game of domino, you’ll probably want to learn how to play Spinners. This variation of the game is made up of a special double-nine domino set and extra-wild dominoes known as spinners. The object of this game is to end up with the lowest score. The rules of Spinners in domino are relatively simple, and the basic game rules are the same for players who have played the game before.

## Origins

The game of domino is said to have originated in France and was probably brought to Britain by French prisoners of war. Originating in France, the game spread across Europe, and was later adapted by other cultures. Today, it is a widely played board game. Many variations have been developed, including Texas 42, Domino Whist, Fives and Threes, Matador, and many more. All of these versions share one common theme – the domino game.

## Game variations

In most cases, players follow the same basic rules of domino, but there are some ways to create unique game variations. These variations must be agreed upon before a game can be started, and must be functional. You’ll find the basic rules for most of the domino games on our site. Some of these variations don’t apply to the solitaire game. To learn more, read on. You’ll also learn how to create your own game variations.
