Domino Line Games

This is the most widespread type of domino connecting game, in which the layout is a single connected chain of tiles, with both ends open so that it can be extended in either direction. Traditionally, tiles with unequal ends are played in line while doubles are played crosswise. Since lines can easily become too long to fit on the table if they were straight, they can be made to turn corners when convenient as in the illustration below. This has no effect on the game.
