While double-six and double-nine are the most commonly used sets of dominoes, larger sets are available for players who want very long games or who plan to play in large groups.

It is possible to determine the number of spots in a domino set of any size by using the formula (n+1)(n+2) / 2, where n equals the largest value available in the set. The spots on a domino set are also sometimes known as dots or pips.
