Dominoes players can now finally enjoy one of their favorite games in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. The popular Dominoes app has been recently updated in the Windows Store and has received full support for Windows 8.1
Let’s get something clear from the beginning – we are talking about the dominoes game, and not Domino’s Pizza. And yes, Domino’s Pizza also has the same logo that depicts the Dominoes game. But we’re talking about the popular tile-based game dominoes or, how some call it, dominos. For those that are beginners in Dominoes, here’s its description:
The traditional Sino-European domino set consists of 28 dominoes, colloquially nicknamed bones, cards, tiles, tickets, stones, or spinners. Each domino is a rectangular tile with a line dividing its face into two square ends. Each end is marked with a number of spots (also called pips or nips) or is blank. The backs of the dominoes in a set are indistinguishable, either blank or having some common design. A domino set is a generic gaming device, similar to playing cards or dice, in that a variety of games can be played with a set.
I’ve been playing this game on my Windows 8 tablet with the Dominoes app (link at the end) and have recently discovered an update that means nothing else than just the fact that it has been updated for Windows 8.1. The game is 100% free and comes with the following playing modes: muggins, block, and draw. This Dominoes app lets up to four different Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 players to enjoy the game.
You can also choose to play against a very smart artificial intelligence opponent, if you’re lacking friends. The score is very easy to keep and the statistics that are provided are also helpful. Inside this Dominoes game for Windows 8 you will find five different domino styles and game themes. Do you like to play dominoes on Windows 8?
