How to Create Spectacular Domino Effects


Domino is a popular table game. Its simplicity belies the intricate way that games are played to determine the winner. The basic game is played with a set of 28 dominoes (also called bones, cards, men, or pieces). A domino has an identity-bearing side with an arrangement of dots, usually pips, and a blank or blank-looking side. A domino’s value is determined by the sum of the pips on the two ends.

The most common domino game involves one player attempting to play out all of his tiles before the opponent does. The winner is decided when all rounds are completed or a point limit is reached. The player with the highest score wins. There are also domino puzzles that require players to place tiles based on arithmetic properties of the pips, such as totals of lines of tiles and tile halves.

Creating these complex domino effects takes planning and careful execution, but the result can be spectacular. Hevesh, a domino artist known online as Hevesh5, is a 20-year-old who has earned more than 2 million YouTube subscribers by creating stunning domino displays. Her largest installations take several nail-biting minutes to set up, and they can contain hundreds or even thousands of dominoes.

Domino’s leadership change in 2004 was devastating for the company and resulted in more than $943 million in debt. To turn things around, Domino’s needed to make a series of changes and stick close to their core values.

One of those core values is Champion Our Customers. By focusing on listening to employees and responding to their concerns, Domino’s was able to improve the quality of its service and customer satisfaction. In turn, Domino’s saw a rise in its sales and market share.

Domino is also used as a metaphor for leadership and management in business. To be successful, Domino’s has had to put its leaders in a position where they can succeed, rather than putting them in positions that are detrimental to the company’s goals and mission.

When it comes to plotting a novel, whether you write it off the cuff or carefully outline your manuscript, you need to consider the domino effect. Each scene in your story should have a domino effect, a sequence of events that naturally leads to the next scene. Using the domino effect in your narrative will help readers understand your characters’ motivations and logic. It will also prevent you from writing scenes that run counter to what most readers believe is logical. For example, if your hero shoots a stranger or has an affair, the reader will want to see a reason for this action that will allow them to forgive it or at least continue to like him as a hero. Otherwise, the scene will fail to be compelling to your audience.
