Domino Game Room Video
With dominoes HTML5 web apps ('blue app' & 'green app'), you can play dominoes using any new browser - either on a desktop like Windows or Mac, or on a mobile device like iPhone or iPad or Android phone or tablet.

For best experience with GameColony web apps, we recommend using Google Chrome web browser.

You can play domino on a desktop using 3 different domino apps:


The above app selection box is shown on top of domino rooms' listings page. You can also select Menu inside a web app and then select Preferences to switch between 'blue app'and 'green app'. Or you can select Menu and then 'switch-to-java' to change to Java applet display of domino.

  • With 'blue app' selected, when you later select "Main Hall", you will see a blue-and-white lobby and traditional non-patterned colors for domino tables
  • With 'green app' selected, when you later select "Main Hall", it will come up in modern patterned green background.
  • With "java" selected, when you later select "Main Hall", it will show an old-style Java applet for domino that will work only if Java is installed correctly from http://www.java.com

    A scrollable domino game room for 'blue app' typically shows up active players and their tables like in the picture below.



    In the top-left corner of the game room, you can see the Menu button as well as your account and your invitations. All these areas are selectable. You can, for example, select your account and see futher details.
    In the top right corner, you can see the scrollable game room chat.

    The main part of the game room screen shows players and their games. Open tables show 'Play' button. You can play, chat, watch other people play, select invitations, etc.

    It is possible to see a sorted list of individual players. If you scroll the game room screen down to where the tables' listing finishes, you will see a list of players and you can select any column heading in that list to sort players, e.g. by their rating or status.

    Selecting Menu, shows the following game room options:


    How to Start Playing

    You can play, chat, watch other people play, select invitations, etc.
    • To start playing, you'd either have to create a table or join someone else's table.
    • To create your own table, select Menu and then 'Create Table'. After creating a table, you'd be able to 'invite' players.
    • To play at someone else's table, select a 'Play' button

    Domino Table

    Domino Table shows a typical domino board and game-related prompt in the middle of the board. Under your domino board there's a chat area. On the left -hand side under the domino board there's a clock with scores for each player.



    If there are several players or watchers sitting at a table, you can select a player name to chat to. To chat, just start typing or you can type after selecting the chat text input box located in mid-chat.

    Moving Dominoes



    Dominoes can be moved (dragged) from own hand to the center of the table. The recessed placeholders indicate where new dominoes can be placed. To move dominoes, you can also double-click them.

    The yellow navigation compass in the lower left corner shows the end-points of playable dominoes in 4 possible directions. Selecting the center of the navigation compass allows to zoom in and out.

    If there are many dominoes displayed on the screen, the whole screen can be moved (dragged) around like a map.
