  1. I thoroughly enjoyed Domino Master and I’ll probably go back for more games even after I finish reviewing it.
  2. Domino Master is nothing more than dominos in five flavours with the ability to go online. If this excites you then you should download Domino Master right away, for now this is the one-and-only domino game on Live.
  3. The clean, simple interface serves Domino Master well, but complete games (composed of several matches) drag on too long, and the tile-placement guides slice too much of the plotting and planning from the experience. [Dec 2008, p.73]
  4. Basically, if you want to play a game of online domino's, just like what you'd be able to play at home, then Domino Master delivers. However, it'd be nice if there was something about the game to really made it stand out, some type of new mode or something introduced strictly for the video game version, to keep it from feeling like a simple board game cash in.
  5. Domino Master isn’t going to overpower a gamer with variations of the game and what you get is pretty straight forward.
  6. 45
    Dominoes isn't about the game at all, it never was and never will be. It's about the social interaction. That's something that doesn't translate well online.
  7. This was a terrible, terrible idea. [Issue#35]
