I had not considered myself a big dominoes fan... until I was introduced to the big, colorful set of dominoes that go all the way up to double fifteens. The set is called Collectors Dominoes and is available at Walmart and online. I believe the company also makes smaller sets, double six, nine, and double twelve. The dominoes are white, with colored dots that help to identify the pieces: rather than having to count the dots, you can just look for green, orange, purple, blue, etc. The double fifteen set has 136 pieces plus a metal centerpiece used to start most games. Also, there is a booklet enclosed that describes several different games you can play with this set. The games are fun and easy to learn. The game can be played by 2 and up to 8 people; the more, the better.
When I had first tried this game at a friend's house, I was immediately hooked. All of us, kids and adults, played together and greatly enjoyed it. I now have my own set, and the fun never gets old.
