I took a chance on this item due to the mixed reviews but now I am paying the price. Other reviewers have stated that their sets contained duplicate dominoes and this is true with the set that I received. My set contains two 2-8 dominoes and was missing the 2-9 domino. This does effectively make the set unusable. Also, I have to agree with other reviewers that the dominoes are on the thin side. For those interested the dominoes contain the brass spinner in the middle which is not clearly indicated in the item description and seems to be an issue for some players seeking dominoes that are stackable. In my opinion, the return process for this item does not warrant the potential costs, so I have elected to attempt to fix the 2-8 domino by adding the missing dot. I caution that not all sets with duplicates may allow for this solution. On a positive note, and the reason for 1 star, at least there are 55 dominoes.

How can I give dominoes only 2 stars?
The NEW dominoes I rec'd are great. Heavy and well made. The wood case is nice too. The operative word there is NEW.
Of the three boxes I bought from Amazon, I gave one away. I kept two boxes and in one of the boxes, there are two shrink wrapped sets of dominoes. After my son opened his presents at Xmas, I helped him open one of the shrink wrapped packages. The others went in his room unopened.
We wanted to play dominoes today and when he brought the dominoes out, there was a set that were obviously used (had pink pen marks) and were discolored. The new ones are shiny and ivory. The old ones are orange-ish, a thinner domino, and scratched up.
I am so disgusted that they'd send USED dominoes. Hence the two-star rating.

too small cheap box
These Dominoes were very small. They appear much smaller than other makers for this price. I returned my set because the size of the Dominoes appeared even smaller than what the ad describes. They just felt too small. The box is also made very cheaply and is extremely lightweight wood, like balsa wood. Seems like it would fall apart very easily. If you don't mind the cheap box and the small size of the dominoes, they appeared ok other than that. But I like the larger size tiles so back they went. Plus I don't think the box would hold up at all.
