I haven’t thought about these or even seen them in years.
I suppose that I could somehow make this fit into a suggestion for making in the classroom.
After all, who doesn’t have 3,242 dominoes at the ready for such a purpose. I checked the Walmart site and you can buy a classic set of 28 dominoes for $29.98. So, do the math before approaching your principal.
I can remember playing the game as it’s intended as a kid.
I also remember the big setups for television to start an activity with the knocking over of the first domino and then it cascades into knocking down the rest. I was always impressed the proper positioning of the dominoes allowed them to actually climb a hill.
But, this video puts it over the top for me.
It’s labelled a “Fail” but it certainly would surpass anything that I ever dreamed of.
- does anyone play dominoes anymore? I can remember watching people play on the Danforth when I lived in Toronto.
- have you ever “made” something with dominoes?
- do you still own a set?
Do you have an idea or thought that would be appropriate for my “Whatever happened to … ” series of blog posts?
Please visit this Padlet and add your idea. I’d love for it to be an inspiration for a post!
