Board games are an excellent way to engage kids' thinking and
social skills. Fun Board Games is a great resource for traditional
games like dominoes, chess, backgammon, and mah jongg.
We tested two sets of double six dominoes. These sell for $10.99
per set on the Fun Board Games website. The dominoes are made of
an acrylic-like plastic that is heavy and durable. After months
of play, all pieces are in great shape. Dominoes is often associated
with stacking the tiles on end and knocking them down. That's fun,
but its even more rewarding to do some digging on the Internet
and learn how dominoes is played around the world. Our children
learned the basic game and enjoyed hours of stacking and knocking
down before returning to the basics.
Fun Board Games is the consumer arm of Fame (USA) Products, Inc,
manufacturer and distributor of a wide range of traditional board
games. If the dominoes we tested are representative of the quality
of their product line, they're definitely worth a look. Among their
other products is a collection of more than 70 themed chess designs,
ranging from the American Civil War to Lord of the Rings.
