Double-Eighteen Dominoes

Learn everything you need to know about the largest of the Western domino sets commercially available, the Double-Eighteens.

There are 190 individual tiles in a Double-Eighteen domino set, and each tile is twice as long as it is wide (known as "double-squares").  They allow you to play some of the more advanced domino games, can be used to add variety to the simpler ones, and allow more players to take part in a game than the smaller domino sets.  Double-Eighteens are generally best suited for games of 10 to 16 players.

Each end of a Double-Eighteen domino tile, divided by a central line (or bar, divider, or centre), is marked with one of nineteen suits denominated as a number of spots (or pips) ranging from 0 (or blank) up to 18.  Each of the nineteen suits has nineteen members with their spotted suit value marked on one end (or both ends for doubles) of the nineteen tiles that make up a suit.  The total number of spots found on a Double-Eighteen domino set is 3,420.
