Moreover, who wins in a tie in dominoes?

The deal is won by the team of the first playerwho plays all his tiles. A blocked game (one that ends in fourpasses with the players still holding at least one tile each) iswon by the team whose unplayed tiles have the lower piptotal. In case of a tie for pip count, the game is atie.

Similarly, why do dominos have spinners? Today, the spinner is still used in some dominosets, largely because out of respect for tradition, but alsobecause the spinner can help protect the face of thedominoes as they are shuffled, and can make it easierto spin or rotate the domino in place. The pin is also sometimesknown as a "pivot".

The pips plus Spinners are counted on allun-played dominoes left in each player's hand at the end ofeach hand. Each dot or pip is counted for its value and eachSpinner symbol is counted as 10. The DoubleSpinner counts 20. Players may agree, prior to the start ofany game, to play a shorter game.

Game Option 1: Blanks can be used as “wildcards” where they are without number in and may join with anytiles regardless of numeral including other blanks. GameOption 2: Blanks count as zero and can be joined only toother blanks, not to any other number.
