Customer Reviews

First of all, there's a lot of content here and Ms. Kelley should be commended for that.

I thought this book would offer more concise rules and manner of play for the various domino games and variations this book talks about.

For generations, folks in my family have played various domino games, though I don't recall ever seeing a set of written rules. I'm delighted that I found the rules to these games and scores of others in Jennifer Kelley's "Great Book of Domino Games." From domino solitaire to versions involving eight or more players, the games are all here -- and so is plenty of five-star fun for friends and family, including kids who develop math skills as they become accomplished players. This superb little book is on my list for birthday gifts.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book that really introduced us to a lot of great evenings in our house. It has a wide variety of games for double six sets and double nine sets, and any number of players. The games we've played have been enjoyable for the adults as well as for the children, and many of the games have even helped our daughter's math skills - - a game such as muggins, where you try to make the pips on the open ends add to multiples of 5. There are old stand by's here, as well as games that have been newly invented. At a price like this, for all the fun we've had, well, it's tough to find a better, more enjoyable deal.

I want to congratulate Ms. Kelley for an outstanding research about the variations of this pastime. Very well written for a descriptive book about the generalities of each variation. I really like to contact Ms. Kelley in order to share some thoughts. My emails are: gtejeira@panamacom.com gtejeira66@yahoo.com
Sincerely,
Gabriel Tejeira

Format: Paperback
Just what the sport needed at the time of its publication the "GREAT BOOK OF DOMINO GAMES" is pretty much all good as a thing to anyone who might try it. It acheives a decent five stars by effectively making its mark as for what it is. I was looking for a bigger sized complete exposition of the sport of domino (to be honest) when I first read the GBODG but still was quite pleased with the outcome of reading it. I was so inspired that I later went on to write and publish a book myself - so my hat is really off to you Ms. Kelley! A good first choice for domino studying!
