Domino’s is famous for its pizza and other foods, but they also offer appetizers, pasta dishes, salads, and desserts. Their food is generally considered to be fast and affordable. They are a popular choice for lunch and dinner. The company is based in the US and has been a publicly traded company since 1995.

Domino (also dominoes or dominoe) is a flat, thumb-sized rectangular block with a line or ridge that divides the identity-bearing face into two squares bearing an arrangement of dots or marks, similar to those on dice, from one to six pips or spots: 28 such pieces form a complete set. The identifying markings are called pips and the blank or identically patterned side is known as the crown. The number of pips on each side indicates the value of the piece. Normally, each domino belongs to one of seven suits of numbers (threes, fives, fours, sixes, eights, nines, and 0s), although there are some exceptions.

Like playing cards, each domino has a rank, or weight, that reflects its ability to stand in for other tiles of the same suit in various games. The rank of a domino is determined by the sum of all its pips, which range from 6 to none. In addition, each suit has its own color, and the dominoes are traditionally colored in a way that distinguishes them from each other.

Before a game of domino begins, the players draw a hand of tiles. Then, the first player (determined by drawing lots or by the holder of the heaviest hand) places the first tile on the table, usually a double-six. All other players then follow in turn, placing a tile with an open end that matches the value of the previous domino.

In a game of domino, the goal is to lay down a chain of tiles that each triggers the fall of all other tiles in the same row. This process is known as stacking or building, and can result in a structure such as a tower or pyramid. Some people also use dominoes to make art, arranging them in straight or curved lines, grids that form pictures, stacked walls, and even 3D structures such as houses or vehicles.

Lily Hevesh began using dominoes when she was 9 years old, and loved the simple thrill of setting them up in a line, flicking them with a finger, and watching them all fall. Now Hevesh, 20, is a professional domino artist, with more than 2 million YouTube subscribers who watch her create stunning layouts. She uses the same technique for each of her videos, making a test version and filming it in slow motion so she can make precise corrections as needed. Hevesh says the most important thing for any domino enthusiast is to remember that, when planning a layout, “you have to think about all the forces and how they will affect each other.” You can learn more about this art form by watching Hevesh’s video below.
