Bamford London is best known for its commitment to personalized luxury products, and the Bamford Dominoes are no exception. The stunning black with white dot dominoes blend in well with Bamford’s other offerings—including their high-end watches. On the back of the tiles, the Bamford logo is displayed. The dominoes come with a clear case that slips into a black box, giving it an elegant and stylish look when not in use.
Dominoes dates back centuries, with the earliest mention being in the Song dynasty in China. The gap in history from that noting covers a large span, with modern dominoes resurfacing in the 18th century in Italy. Dominoes can be played in a number of ways. Regardless of the game, play revolves around the rectangular tiles, each decorated with a number of spots called pips, nips, or dobs. The tiles themselves are also called various names—bones, cards, tiles, tickets, stones, chips, or spinners. Traditional sets consist of 28 dominos representing the possible spot combinations of zero through six. Originally, those number representations were based on one of the 21 possible results of throwing two six sided dice. Most games are played with the objective of emptying your hand while blocking the play of other players. Games can be quick and strategic, and are a great way to bring people together.
The Bamford London Dominoes bring a touch of elegance to this ancient game. The design remains true to the origins, but beauty of the pieces elevates the game.
