Dominoes: a beautiful game

It’s been a little while since I’ve stumbled across any game-like bits and pieces I’ve wanted to include here. Until now that is. A new take on an old classic, for sure. Dominoes re-imagined. Created by Glasgow-based Derek Walsh of DWS and designers Graphical House, it’s just the kind of collaboration that warms my heart. It’s good to know people are paying attention to little things like this lovely, calm game so they are not entirely forgotten …

What a fine thing to pop into a campervan compartment or simply to play while sheltering from harsh weather wherever you may be.
