Pretty good; could be better

While I've enjoyed playing this game, it could use a few improvements. The game is set to "landscape", which makes sense, but one of the most annoying things is having to move the board back and forth when the string of plays gets too long to fit in the window. There is an icon in the lower right of the field of play for that brings up a "Cancel" window and it is sometimes in the way and you can't see the domino on the right end of play. Another example, if you choose to play a domino from your rack, you can't change your mind. If there is only one place to play the domino, it plays it right away. But if there are multiple places to play it, arrows point to the various options. If you decide that wasn't the best one to play ... tough. One final thing; in playing real dominos, for strategy moves I sometimes draw from the bone pile even if I have a play. I assume this is legal because you're taking the risk of getting caught with extra dominos, giving the opponent points. But, this won't let you do that. It seems you can only draw when you don't have anything to play. On the positive side, it won't let you draw a domino when you have a play that you didn't see. Hope that helps.

I've played Dominos for a very long time and I rarely come across anyone or program I lose to very often. I felt like I was playing my 9 bones against the computer's choice of the rest of the yard. The computer scores at will regardless of what is played and, as mentioned below, almost always gives you doubles when drawing. How is it that I can pull six of one suit, drop the double and the computer have the only other bone and have that happen numerous times

If the computer pulls from the boneyard, 8 out of 10 times it pulls once and plays, 8 out of 10 times it will score on the draw, 8 out of 10 times you will pull more than twice each time in the yard, & 9 out of 10 times you will pull at least one double on your first pull each time in the yard. Those facts, though true, should be about as unrealistic as beating the computer with a 9 bone hand scoring 250 to 0...which I did...but only once.

To those below, if your screen doesn't allow you to scroll or you wish to choose a different domino to place down while the arrows are blinking, simply exit the game and reenter. Do not restart, just exit the game and reenter.

a lot of fun- needs adjustable A.I

I love this game! The presentation is slick and the sounds/music choices work well, I've definitely gotten my money's worth in play time so far.
Assuming (hoping!) Soneso intends to update the game, here's what it could use:
-when I got this game I had know idea how to play dominoes but wanted to learn. I found the instructions to be fairly clear, however I did not understand the five-up scoring system-- it wasn't explained very well. I think maybe the instructions make more sense to people who have played other versions of dominoes and know the terms.
-unfortunately the A.I.'s difficulty is not at all choosable. I found that once I understood the rules of the game I could win every time- PLEASE I beg you, add some difficulty settings!
-I noticed when I dont have a dominoe that I can play, the "camera", for lack of a better word, moves to the center of the board and will "fight" you if you try to scroll to see what piece was placed last. That is very annoying, please fix that.
