Is there strategy in dominoes?
Some people see dominoes as a game of blind luck that depends on what tiles you draw and what tiles other players lay down. This isn’t really the case: Dominoes is actually a game in which skill and strategy are important, and so one of the more important factors in playing dominoes is keeping your tiles close at hand.
What percentage of dominoes is luck?
Extract (summary) from rationales for lower estimates: the luck factor is less than 1%, and almost all of that is in the drawing of dominos. If one percent of drawn hands were unbeatable, that would mean over 11,840 different possible sure-win combinations could be drawn. That seems like too many.
How do you play Cuban domino strategy?
