Playing board for domino games.
|This offered dominoes differ from traditional game
as follows: there is a playing board (game board); and domino elements
(pieces, tiles, tokens) are designated by specific way, which allows
players to receive unusual capabilities for rule organization of their game interaction.
The playing board squares have rectangular shape, which coincides with shape of domino tiles. Light and dark squares are alternated as in a chess, and also squares are divided in halves with thin linear marking that allows placing dominoes lengthwise or transverse in relation to the board. At the playing board’s edges there are numerical designations corresponding to vertical and horizontal square rows.
The playing board, which is used in this domino game, is consisting of 8 vertical and 8 horizontal square rows. The main reason for this playing board is the fact that 64 squares are the most optimal quantity for player’s perception, and the fact that this number of squares is accepted for many classical games such as chess or checkers.
Well known domino sets including 28 tiles with digit combinations from 0 to 6 do not fit to the playing board which has 64 squares. Due to this circumstance in this game there are tile sets in which repeated dominoes are added.
Doubles 0/0, 6/6, 2/2, 4/4 are added to one set (designated with “A” letter), and doubles 0/0, 6/6, 1/1, 5/5 are added to the second set (designated with “B” letter). Altogether each complete set contains 32 domino tiles. Thus two sets of dominoes can be brought into coordination with these 64 squares of the playing board.
The domino tiles are dual digits combinations. Combinations of equal digits are called “doubles”. And if domino tiles are combinations of unequal digits they are called “fractions”. Digits are applied on domino tiles as dots.
These two sets of dominoes differ from each other with help of circles which have different colors. These circles are situated on face side of tiles. Red and yellow circles are applied on tiles of the set “A”, blue and green circles are located on the set “B”. In all, each set includes domino tiles of two colors. These two colors are necessary to designate proportional groups in sets’ composition. Namely, these two colors indicate that each set is distributed (divided) into two groups of dominoes, and digits in these groups are proportional. In the set “A” digits of 16 red tiles are proportional to digits of 16 yellow tiles. And in the set “B” digits of 16 blue tiles are proportional to digits of 16 green tiles.
Thus, to play rules of this domino game you can select two proportional groups from any one set composition, digits in composition of which are proportional. In other case you can select two sets, which digit compositions are identical. In this circumstance, if each player is playing by dominoes of his own set or his own proportional group then winning equal odds will be obeyed.
Back sides of domino tiles, which belong to set “A” and set “B”, are differ from each other due to dark and light circles located on them. Proportional groups in sets’ composition are designated by presence/absence of crosses.
Proportional groups of dominoes located on the playing board in initial game positions are shown in Figures 1(A) and 1(B). Domino digits are shown on these Figures with Arabic figures inside of a playing board schematic square frames.
Domino tiles are directed towards the opponent with help of orienting arrows. It is necessary to ensure for digits of proportional groups to be oriented proportionally. Namely, digits applied on domino tiles can be directed forward or backward in relation to orienting arrows. And to ensure optimal game interaction it is necessary to have proportional number of digits, which oriented forward and backward, in each proportional group of dominoes.
This is shown in Figures 1(A) and 1(B) with help of schematic arrows located on right side.
As can be seen from these Figures, domino sets included in this game package are presenting so called “magic square" of dominoes. In accordance with “magic” arrangement of digits in this shown “magic Figures” the sets of dominoes A and B are distributed into proportional groups. And orienting arrows are applied onto domino tiles in accordance to this “magic” arrangement. Due to this arrangement players may to place dominoes on the playing boards directing towards opponent by orienting arrows. It ensures optimal game interaction.
This “magic” arrangement consists in the fact that digits create regular sums in vertical and horizontal directions when dominoes are located on specifies order. These sums are shown along schematic board edges. The sums of digits obtained in horizontal direction are shown on right side. The sums of digits obtained in vertical direction are shown above and under of the schematic board.
In such a manner, the present domino game has defined order, which allows players to have equal odds and to play with playing information opened completely.
