Domino sets vary in size and complexity, according to the number of dots. This big Double Twelve set has 91 domino pieces, and each piece has from one to 12 color-coded dots at each end, or no dots (blank). The pieces can be used to play 16 different games; instructions for all the games are included. Made of a heavy white, ivory-like plastic, the pieces are 2 inches long, 1 inch wide, and .3 inch thick, and they store neatly in their case. --Richard FarrSee all Product description

It is so fun!
There are many colors, which help match the number of dots (there are two or three sizes of dots--larger for the lower numbers, smaller for the higher numbers), which can get pretty tricky.
The tiles sound good when you smoosh them together to mix them up. Very click clicky.
My 6-year-old loves it and even beat me a few times! (Really. I did NOT let him win.)
Unlike for some of the other reviewers, our tin was not dented upon delivery. Maybe the manufacturer figured that out.
The tiles chip easily.
They stain easily (something got on two of the tiles--not sure if they came that way or it happened at our house, but we noticed it immediately). I tried to remove but only an SOS pad helped. Now I can still see a (very) slight discoloration.
There are only four trains. As another reviewer mentioned, you can use coins for the other eight slots, but really, why only four?
There is no electronic train. I assumed there would be; I should have known better. I'll look to see if I can buy it separately.
My four-year-old daughter is utterly disinterested (but I'm not surprised--it's definitely too old for her).
Have fun! This really is a great value.
Follow up: Amazon did a great job sending me a new set in a couple of days. Thank you Amazon! I'm glad I held on to the return set because I had to raid it for a 10/-. The second set came with and extra 10/10 and no 10/blank. Again! Don't buy this set. Get something from Puremco instead.
What arrived was a set of 91 double-twelve dominoes. The tin was dented, as another review mentioned, but the damage was minor and I can deal with it. Also, the tin looks different than the one in the picture. The difference is purely cosmetic (it has a red border on top, the picture of four dominoes on a gray background, and the circle of a poorly played game of Mexican Train below it), but it is interesting to note. Inside the package were the dominoes, four plastic trains (red, green, blue and yellow, not red, blue, black and white as in the picture), the Mexican Train octogon starting piece, and the instructions for 16 games.
Let me begin with the instructions. They are quite extensive, with Cardinal's description of Mexican Train (which is incomplete, see [...]), along with many other games and a few versions of Solitaire. There are plenty of games which can be played with a double-twelve set of dominoes, so having this set of rules is a good start, although I also purchased a book of rules that should be more comprehensive and complete (Great Book Of Domino Games by Jennifer A. Kelley).
Onto the pieces. Everything is made in China. The starting octagon feels very cheap, but considering it's not really necessary for play and it does the job, it is satisfactory. All the plastic pieces have an odd smell, but that disappears over time. I left the dominoes out overnight and while there is still an odor, it is not as strong as it was when I first opened them. Another review notes that the dominoes are ceramic. This does not appear to be the case, although the plastic they are made from is indeed very sturdy. I do have some black flecks on some of the dominoes and the paint is chipped on some of the pips, but the pieces are otherwise intact and I'm happy with them. They are 2"x1" and 1/4" thick.
I received a complete set of dominoes with no missing pieces or duplicates. You don't have to unwrap the dominoes to verify this. They come packaged together in a few shrink-wrapped bricks, each brick having a set of dominoes in order with the pips exposed. I would recommend opening the tin and examining the pieces to make sure you have a correct set in case you need to return/exchange it.
For the price, I'd recommend this set. Dominoes are classic, and there is much fun to be had with a set like this.
