Haven Magazine - - Upfront -

Domi­noes have been around since for­ever and in our home, one of the most trea­sured things in our toy room is a set of vin­tage domi­noes that my kids’ grand­fa­ther played with as a child back in the 1950s. For a spin on tra­di­tional domi­noes, have you ever played Tri-ominos? With more than 21 mil­lion sets sold world­wide, Tri-ominos is the ul­ti­mate game com­bin­ing strat­egy with luck. Play­ers try to match one side of a Tri­omino tile that’s on the ta­ble to one that they have in their hand. It’s easy for kids and can be played sim­ply or com­pet­i­tively. Our haven Kid Re­viewer, Miss 7, says Tri-ominos is “su­per fun and not bor­ing”. She likes to play it with her big sis­ter and her grand­par­ents “be­cause I can win even though I’m the youngest!”. “I also re­ally like num­bers and this game is all about match­ing num­bers,” she says. Just re­leased is the Tri-ominos 50th an­niver­sary edi­tion (pic­tured). It’s suit­able for 2-4 play­ers, aged 8+ years. $24.95.
