Davidson (Dallas, TX USA) – This review is from: Double 15 Color Dot Dominoes in a Collectors Tin (styles will vary) (Toy) Wow, this is a great set of dominoes. You can play a huge number of games with varying levels of complexity.Fun: Personally, I recommend you get the box of Double 12s. This box has more ‘bones’ as the dominoes are called and unless you sort out those with higher values you will find some games too time consuming or unnecessarily difficult. Otherwise this would have gotten 5 stars for fun.Education: From simple for all ages, to more complex rules to satisfy those who require games with thought and strategy. The great part about dominoes is that you can play a game with both types of folks at the same time!Durable: Not only are the dominoes very durable, the tin they come in is a wonderful storage container.Extra: The colored spots/dots on this set. They truly liven up the bones in a way that white on black simply cannot match. They add more ways to play than counting spots or pattern recognition, adding to the ease of play and ability to use the game educationally. None of the dots have not chipped or faded for me.Buy this game for yourself. Play with friends and family. Watch them go out and buy their own set. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 37 of 38 people found the following review helpful Poor quality control, damaged, etc., February 12, 2012 By J. Anderson (IL, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Double 15 Color Dot Dominoes in a Collectors Tin (styles will vary) (Toy) I made sure to purchase this set of Double 15 colored pip dominoes because they are produced by Cardinal Industries – the company that made my double-9 and double-12 sets that my family purchased in the mid-90’s. Let me start out with my major complaint: Cardinal Industries’ quality control is now in the toilet. I know the double-9 and double-12 sets purchased in the mid-90’s were much more expensive and of a higher quality… seeing this double-15 set for such a low price made me leery. Even with reviews posted here on Amazon, of paint defects and easily identifiable defects – I still purchased this set… I fully expected some of the dominoes to have issues. However, I’m disappointed at the level of damage, paint chips, and over all paint contamination causing many to be easily identifiable. Side note: I’ve uploaded a number of photos to this product to show some “issues” you may run into. Make sure you get what you purchased! Do not “assume” that all the *RIGHT* dominoes are there. Lay them out, put them in order, and verify that every one is there. Having an incomplete/incorrect set will cause confusion in the middle of your favorite intense game of dominoes. Note: My set was complete. My set arrived in a tin, though it wasn’t damaged, it is a metal tin – and we all know they *can* be easily dented, etc. Take care – if yours arrived in great condition. The “train” hub that was included in my set (see the pictures I uploaded) is adequate, no frills. It is smaller than other ones I have, and I actually prefer that. My set only came with 4 – yes four – train markers. Hello Cardinal, the train hub provided for – say Mexican Train – plays up to 8, plus the public train… you need to provide at minimum 9 markers! 4 is not enough. In my opinion, if they didn’t want to include a full set, they shouldn’t have included them at all. If you want a stand alone (more robust) train hub (with frills) and 9 markers, look at this product: Mexican Train And Chickenfoot Game Centerpiece Kit Let’s face it, this is a set of dominoes, and there are various types of games you can play with them… thus the 5/5 for “how fun is this toy”. I’m giving a 3/5 for durability – after one day some paint is already coming off – just from shuffling the dominoes! Overall I have to give it a 1/5. I’m disappointed by the quality control coming from Cardinal Industries, the paint issues and contamination is just too much – even for the price. ** One last thing… Upon opening the dominoes (they come shrink wrapped in the tin), a very intense chemical odor emanated from the set. The smell persists, days later. Played a game with five others, and they all noticed it. Nauseating really. :/ ** Update: I’ve noticed that some tiles are actually thinner than others – by a noticeable amount. This is just another nail in the coffin that is Cardinal Industries Double Fifteen Color Dot Dominoes. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 38 of 39 people found the following review helpful Fun with your neighbors and friends, February 11, 2002 By Amazon Customer (APO, AE United States) – This review is from: Double 15 Color Dot Dominoes in a Collectors Tin (styles will vary) (Toy) We purchased the 15 color dominoe set and we loved it! We have German neighbors and we taught them how to play dominoes and“chicken claw” (a fun dominoe game). The dominoes are so durable and colorful that even the kids were able to play with the adults. They are easy to clean (if necessary) and store nicely in their tin box. Great product! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
