I don't know much about Domino games. I've been told 42 is one of the best, but I don't like the fact that it requires pen and paper for tracking scores and marks.

I'd like to hear about some of the very best and most interesting, challenging, and strategic domino games, including how many players they support, how quickly they play, what kind of dominos and other components they require, and why you like the game.

Thanks in advance!

All dominoes games that I know of require scorekeeping. However, if you don't want to use disposable items like pencil and paper, you could use a cribbage board instead.

You'll find some good information via this link.

For most domino games, you can use a cribbage board for scoring.

Or you can just play individual hands and not keep a running score.

The game 42 is unique among domino games. Texans may shoot me for saying it, but it's not your standard domino game; it's a trick-taking card game designed to be played with dominoes instead of cards. But of course it is played with dominoes--and the two-endedness of the tiles makes a difference.
