How Not Your Grandma’s Dominoes Was Born
While all Henhouse games are family-created, Not Your Grandma’s Dominoes was a bit of a dad-driven game. I love playing Dominoes with my kids, but like most games I play with them, I can get a little impatient (I know, I need to work on that). We had just finished designing Not Your Grandma’s Crazy 8’s to be a speed game, and I really wanted to see what a speed Dominoes game would look like. My wife and 13-year-old son became the game play guinea pigs for this one, and we began experimenting will all kind of speed Dominoes options. Each iteration made the game look a little less like Dominoes. By the time we were on our 10th or 11th option, the game only half looked like traditional Dominoes, but was twice as much fun. When our friends came over to play, they were immediately addicted and spent hours trying to see who was fastest. They were pretty fast….but, who knows….maybe you’ll be faster.
