Domino Games with a Disconnected Layout
In some domino connecting games the layout consists of several separate components - rows, columns, chains or groups of tiles - to which tiles can be added. It may be that each player has their own separate layout, or that players have the option of playing on any component they choose where their play will fit.
Here is a list of traditional and invented domino games on pagat.com that have disconnected layouts.
