Games have always been a source of entertainment for millions of people across the world. A game is simply a structured form of entertaining play, sometimes used for fun or amusement, and at other times used as a teaching tool. Games are quite different from work, which often is carried out for remuneration; and from literature, which is mostly an expression of artistic or aesthetic elements.
The simplest form of game is the board game, based on a simple set of rules. Every player enters the game with a set of playing-cards, known as playing-chips. Each player has a main role, that is, to be the discoverer of cards by fulfilling the conditions laid down before them by other players. For example, in a game of Monopoly each player is the owner of property, but cannot use it unless he receives new playing-chips from his opponents. In a simple game of Monopoly each player has a main role, but is allowed to alter the rules as he sees fit.
Another form of game is gambling games. In gambling games, all players roll a dice and place their bets. There is no player-room and all decisions have to be made by a group of people sitting at a table, using a dominoe to move their pieces around. In some gambling games, like blackjack, there are two dice, one for each hand. The object of the game is to be the first player to get all their dice into their opponent’s pockets.
The game of chess is played with a set of chess boards covered with marble. Dominoes are also used, but are circular discs with one end shaped like a marble. Players place their chess pieces on top of the dominoes and alternately pushing their pieces over the board. Marble is laid on top of the dominoes, making a solid foundation for the game. Each player has a set of tiles they can use, but any other tiles are considered “tiles” by the rules of the game. After a player has pushed all of their tiles off the board, then they are “out” and their opponent is the new “player”.
A third type of game that some people think of when they mention Monopoly, or similar board games, is playing cards. While the board does play a part in the physical skill required to win, the actual cards that are used are the main tools used to move your pieces around. Playing cards have a base of fifty cards, including seven “regular” cards and three “special” cards. These special cards deal more damage, allow you to move your pieces, or have other effects. Some of the special cards include “use all of your power”, “castigate your rival”, “cash money”, and “take control of property”.
All of these games use different sets of dominoes, and thus each set plays differently than the others. Some of these sets, including Scrabble, contain cards that are referred to as “dominoes”, which are stacked up in a certain order. Dominoes in these games use different sets of rules than do regular dominoes found in regular card games. As you can see, there are a lot of different ways people can play and incorporate board games into their day-to-day lives.
