“Undoubtedly the best handbook to the game was, and still is, F.W. Lewis’s Dominoes ...” — cf. Antiquarian Book Monthly, 1994. In it the author starts with the rules and the basic block game, then goes on to describe seven other games and their variants. He writes in the preface, “Once a player has gained a fair insight into the more scientific and skilled games ... they immediately drop the block game.”
