What Is a Domino?

A domino is a small wooden or plastic block with markings similar to dice, designed to cause chain reactions when used. They can be used for various games and art installations; creating lines which form pictures or walls is just one form of application for their versatility.

Domino effects in business refer to any event which causes ripples across other events, like when one event triggers another event in an unpredictable chain reaction. One such domino effect would occur if an employer hires a new employee who fails to perform as expected and this then leads to other issues which impact its bottom line and reduce profitability.

Domino is an addictive two or more player game in which each player must alternate placing dominoes to keep playing until all their pieces have been placed or they declare a winner. There are various variations for the game with unique rules for play.

Some versions of dominoes require that all dominoes be lined up before starting play; other variations allow the player to choose any domino lying on the table that fits with their chosen value for each domino placed. Some games set limits on how often a player may place dominoes; while others limit how long they can continue.

Stephen Morris of the University of Toronto physicist explains that when a domino stands upright it stores energy as potential energy. When it falls, most of this stored potential energy converts to kinetic energy which causes it to push on other dominoes until eventually one topples over completely.

A domino can be used for various applications, but most commonly associated with dominoes or the “domino effect”. A domino is a small rectangular block marked like dice that’s used in playing this type of game where each domino affects successive ones in sequence until one falls over and all are scattered to pieces.

The term domino originates in Latin, “dominium domini,” which translates as: “The smallest thing which causes something greater to happen.” Domino also refers to long, hooded robes worn at masquerade balls – thought to have inspired its design as it recalls priest’s hooded cape over surplice. Domino was first introduced into French after 1750 and in English several years later.
