What the HECK Are They Saying?






If you've ever played dominoes with some SERIOUS domino players, you've probably heard some pretty CRAZY slang when somebody scores five or more points ~ in multiples of five, of course!

So, just in case you've always wanted to know exactly what some of that slang is and what it actually means in relation to the number of points scored, I've compiled a list, though not comprehensive by ANY means. For those of you who would like to share some of your slang or slang you've heard, you can send it to me at contact@big6bones.com, and I will update the blog!
