    Are they game dominoes or falling dominoes? All these ideas are great for game dominoes. I haven't seen any falling dominoes in person, but I am sure the form should inspire the function.

      @Susan E What on earth is a falling domino and how does it differ from a game domino?

  • Susan E Susan E on Sep 20, 2015
    Falling dominoes are the ones that people line up in patterns. They knock the first one and the dominoes all fall down. The dominoes are really plastic rectangles in bright colors. Here is a youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARM42-eorzE

    How about spraying the sides with the dots white or any other color of choice and then tile an area (wall, serving tray, glue to backboard and frame it, etc) in a subway tile pattern.

    I have a favourite necklace that was bought at a craft fair, it is made with a single dominoe. The creator painted the back with a butterfly and drilled a hole thru the top to thread a string through. The back of the pendant is the dotted side. Don't know what you'll do with the rest of the box of them!
