Jamaicans love to play dominoes, and you’ll find people playing the game on street corners. Locals take their games seriously, strategizing moves like they are playing poker. In 2010, Jamaica hosted the Dragon Stout World Series of Dominoes, which offered prizes totaling millions of dollars for winners of the cut-throat competitions. Jamaica’s Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Olivia Grange said, “The game is played across Jamaica in every ‘nook and cranny’, in living rooms uptown, on verandahs, at clubs, even in churches.” And it’s played with passion: observers note that every time a tile is played, the table shakes.
