Some terms regarding the game of dominoes
When you are playing this game domino, there will be many terms that you have to come across. Go through this article thoroughly to know what these terms are and what the relations are.
These terms which we are going to discuss today are:
- Blocking Game
- Scoring Game
- Draw Game
Let us now go into some of the details of these terms.
What is Blocking Game?
The blocking game in Domino generally requires the involvement of two players and also involves the involvement of a “double six set.” The main point of this kind of game is that one player can only know the value of the cards of his or her hand itself, but not the ones in the hands of another player. One player initiates this entire game with the tiles which he or she has, and thus, these tiles will now act as the line of play of the game. Likewise, each and every player has to bid in their line of play, which must be valid only if the adjacent sides are matching. But, if any situation occurs where one cannot bid in a valid line of play, then he or she must draw the tiles which are kept as a stock at the side. This will continue unless and until that player will have a valid title to bid as a line of play. The player who will bid in his or her last tiles as a line of play, he or she will win. Or else, if none of the players can give in bids, then the game is said to be blocked. In this case, the one who blocks it gets it all.
What is a scoring game?
This is the part where you score in your game. Before a title has been laid on the table, a player is expected to call out the word domino, but, if he doesn’t, and someone else does it after the tile has been laid, then that initial player will be entitled to draw another domino.
What is a draw game?
When a draw game occurs in a domino that is neither a scoring game nor a blocking game, then all the players have to keep on withdrawing their respective tiles from the stock, without placing any kind of bids for a line of play. This step will keep on continuing unless and until the stock is almost empty. The game here is scored with reference to the number of the pips, which are present in the hand of the losing players. But, this generally happens where there are only two tiles left after the successive withdraw of tiles.
What is bogus play?
This is a play for earning extra points to be very frank. This mainly happens when a player plays out of his or her own turn or when a player draws a tile when he or she could have easily played one. To this situation, if a player calls out “dewa poker,” then the player calling will be receiving 50 points instantly.
