In an article in the Sacremento Bee (Domino Effect), staff writer Alison apRoberts writes about a new board game based on dominoes.
ZingaMino was created by an engineer named Dahmane Dahmani and his 11 year old son Yanni. Together, they formed a company to take their form of family fun to market. The game is the product of more than 2 ½ years of quality father-son creative brainstorming and considerable investment in professional design and prototyping. They introduced their game at the American International Toy Fair in New York City in February. “Today, it’s possible for game lovers everywhere – including children — to participate in the market,” Dahmani says.
ZingaMino is a colorful twist on classic dominoes where you literally “play outside-of-the-box.” Taken from Swahili, the word “Zinga” means to turn in circles, and that’s just what you’ll do. Players race to fill four game circles that must connect sequentially. The luck of the draw can bring a Zinga!™ for extra points or even the win. What goes around comes around in a beautiful balance of strategy and chance.
The game is available for sale from the ZingaMino web site for $29.95.
