DOMINOES

The traditional domino is a rectangular tile with a line dividing its face into two square ends that are marked with a number of spots (also called pips, nips, or dobs). 

 

Domino tiles can be made of wood, bone, plastic and paper, in different shapes, and with different graphic elements. Check out the gallery for some examples.

Paper dominoes are great because you can carry them with you anywhere.

 

Use thicker stock paper like index cards, cardboard, or chipboard paper (like cereal boxes).
