A domino is a piece of wood or bone or plastic that is used as a gaming object. They are variously referred to as bones, cards, men, pieces or tiles and come in different colors.
They usually measure twice as long as they are wide and are shaped into two squares called ends, with the number of spots or pips on each end. The most common set is double-six (28 pieces).
Some people call them boneyard or stock, although in the United States they’re more often called “bones” or “tiles.” They’re shuffled face down, and players choose seven pieces from them. Then one player plays their domino and the other must play a domino that has the same number of pips as the one they played.
In most games, the person with the highest total number of pips wins. However, if the first player doesn’t have any dominos with matching values, they must choose another from the stock or boneyard and play that. The pattern repeats until one player has all their dominoes or none are left.

The chain effect
A domino has inertia, or the tendency to resist motion when no outside force is present. The inertia is a function of gravity and its ability to store energy. As a domino is lifted off the ground, it has potential energy — stored energy that could be converted to kinetic energy. When it falls, that energy is released.
The domino effect is a physical phenomenon that can be applied to business and personal strategies. It’s easy to let your streams of ideas crowd out one another, but if you can prioritize which ones are most important, you can knock them over and make space for newer, more exciting ideas.
It’s also helpful to remember that there’s a big difference between the amount of energy you’re putting into each idea and how much time you spend on it. In fact, the more you devote to an idea, the more energy it will generate for itself.
In addition, if you share an idea publicly, it’s more likely to catch on. It’s also easier to connect with other people who are interested in the same topic, and this can help build your audience.
You can use this principle in your own life, too, by finding a single activity that you want to work on. If you do this, you’ll find that your other interests will follow suit and eventually become a bigger priority.
Domino’s pizza turned around
In 2009, Domino’s CEO Patrick Doyle launched a new marketing campaign that encouraged the company to be honest about its mistakes and own up to its failures. The results of this effort were a resurgence in sales and an incredibly strong share price.
