 Helping Out
There are several ways to help us get dominoes going: email, chat, talk, or whatever else you prefer. We can always use assistance in helping new players learn to play Canasis Dominoes. The more players we get, the better Dominoes can become and the more features we add. The biggest thing we need assistance in is getting more players over here.

If you are part of a Yahoo dominoes club, feel free to represent your club in Canasis Dominoes by helping others in your club out and passing on their comments and suggestions to us. If you do this, please do let us know so we can give you credit for it and when it comes time to setup our own clubs we will know who to contact.

 Dominoes Night
Every Tuesday starting at 5pm MT/7pm ET we will be holding a gathering in Dominoes. Come play and chat about Dominoes and other stuff. Sometimes we will even have contests, marathons, prizes, coupons for milk (joke), or just to play for fun, we invite all players to come and join the fun.

The gatherings are held in the many-more-games tab => "UnderDogs" room. (used to be held in homegrown room, but moved to UnderDogs room for now) Hope to see you all there.
