A friend of mine & I like to play the game of Dominos. Last month, March, I suggested we get together every once in awhile and play game of Dominos. I had bought in an after Christmas sale couple years ago the Bamboo Domino set that you will see in photos below. We had fun and have now played a 2nd time. I won 1st & 2nd time so far.

I altered a composition notebook to write/record scores. I altered some of the inside as well. Used couple different Cricut cartridges & more to make this. See supplies list for details.

For those not familiar with the basic Domino game is that person with the double 6 Domino starts.
