The name Domino has always been linked with the game of chess. It’s almost telekinetic sense, but this is only the early sense. In Italian, domino initially meant a cape worn by an ancient priest on his surplice; thus, Domino pieces have traditionally been made from ebony wood and ivory faces. Domino pieces have been made with gold, silver, bronze, and several other metals in different styles. In recent years, the traditional ivory domino was revived in a new variation featuring synthetic ivory, giving the piece an entirely new look. Domino chess pieces are typically square or rectangular in shape, though some chess enthusiasts have designed chess pieces in more unorthodox shapes, including heart-shaped and diamond-shaped pieces.
Another version of the classic domino chess piece is the double domino. These are made of two dominoes side by side, which means they can be easily positioned over one another to create an array of triangular prisms. Dominoes also make great gifts because not only do the colors match, but the design of the piece is in keeping with traditional domino designs, such as the double domino. For example, the marble dominoes are often paired with platinum or silver pieces.
Domino Data Platform provides chess enthusiasts with a simple yet functional way to store and transfer game pieces. Though not specifically designed for chess, the platform allows players to save games and share them with other players. The reviewer sees Domino’s biggest weakness as its complexity: its interface makes it difficult for the user to remember the pieces’ positions. Other than that, the platform is great for both casual and experienced gamers.
