According to the World Records Academy, students in the Cayman Islands have set a new world record:
A total of 588 John Gray High School students played dominoes on the school campus – setting the new world record for most people playing dominoes simultaneously.
The previous Guinness world record was 549, set in Venezuela two years ago.
Maths teacher Ted Todd was the organizer of this fun attempt to break the record for the most number of people playing dominos in the same place at the same time and said he got the idea after watching some students play dominoes on the school campus. [read more]
The previous record, of 332 players, was set at the VI World Championship of Dominoes in Orlando, Florida in 2008.
