“El Domino” is for Puerto Ricans not simply a game of strategy or just a pastime, but also an activity around which community relationships are built and sustained. Dominoes are played in all circles in the Puerto Rican society by people of all ages. It is primarily known as a family game, since it is learned by children from their fathers, uncles, and grandfathers. In Dominoes, it is interesting that one of the team strategies summarizes a community theme: “The best offensive strategy is to defend your partner.” Around the domino table, the players & families interact – cooking, playing music together and just mingling; therefore dominoes becomes a social-familiar event, almost a ritual, in which all become refreshed and recharged.
We will provide a staff member that will instruct the rules of game, tips and tricks of playing Dominoes Puerto Rican-style. We will then set-up games and run them tournament-style, offering direction and assistance throughout. Puerto Rican dominoes are played 4 people per game in teams of two. We will provide each participant with their own set of Puerto Rican Dominoes. We will make adjustments to the event based on timing and other factors.
