Wow, this is a great set of dominoes. You can play a huge number of games with varying levels of complexity.
Fun: Personally, I recommend you get the box of Double 12s. This box has more 'bones' as the dominoes are called and unless you sort out those with higher values you will find some games too time consuming or unnecessarily difficult. Otherwise this would have gotten 5 stars for fun.
Education: From simple for all ages, to more complex rules to satisfy those who require games with thought and strategy. The great part about dominoes is that you can play a game with both types of folks at the same time!
Durable: Not only are the dominoes very durable, the tin they come in is a wonderful storage container.
Extra: The colored spots/dots on this set. They truly liven up the bones in a way that white on black simply cannot match. They add more ways to play than counting spots or pattern recognition, adding to the ease of play and ability to use the game educationally. None of the dots have not chipped or faded for me.
Buy this game for yourself. Play with friends and family. Watch them go out and buy their own set.
