What is Domino?


Domino is a strategy game played with one or more domino sets. A player wins by creating chains of dominoes before his opponents do, from simple to very complex arrangements. Each domino features a set of numbered ends which fit with another domino in the chain; these pair-offs are known as doubles; when found together they lead the chain while an opening double serves as its leader; players take turns choosing dominoes until one with matching ends appears which they can use to form that chain leader.

Dominos (also referred to as bonesticks or pegs) originated in France during the late 18th Century via French prisoners of war and eventually arrived in Britain as early as 1797 via prisoner of war trade routes. Domino is derived from French for “a black and white hood worn over priestly surplices”, though nowadays domino games can be found all around the world with various rules and naming conventions being employed for play.

Traditional domino sets feature tiles with faces decorated with an arrangement of spots or blanks similar to those on a die, known as pips, which are uniformly molded or drilled into every domino and separated by either a line or ridge; their backs may either remain blank or come adorned with designs; common combinations for dominoes include white with black pips and black with white pips.

A traditional set of dominoes contains 28 pieces due to six possible pairs of pips on each end (a double-six set), but additional dominoes can be combined using blank ends without pips and blank spaces at either end to form 56 unique dominoes, giving this set its name.

Larger sets of dominoes, like double-nine or double-twelve sets, may also be found. These large sets allow multiple players to participate at once but generally cannot be found in retail stores due to needing more storage space.

A domino effect in business occurs when events or actions cascade from one point to the next in an uncontrollable chain-like fashion, like poor customer service leading to low employee morale, which then results in decreased revenues – this can be catastrophically harmful to any organization.

Domino’s Pizza is an internationally recognized restaurant franchise founded in 1963 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Their initial strategy centered around efficiency and fast delivery; however, as time went on they realized consumers wanted more quality in their meals and so shifted towards quality over speed as part of their offering. This led them to make this strategic shift within their organization.

Domino’s focused on quality by adapting their recipes and increasing use of fresher ingredients, as well as positioning their locations near college campuses to reach students more efficiently while keeping up their quick delivery reputation. While this change altered their strategy slightly, it kept with their core values; by sticking to these ideals Domino’s has thrived over time.
