Domino Wars

I have lived for a considerable number of time and accumulated a history. So every once in a while I will post a story from my past. Not too often, of course, otherwise I will seem to be one of those old people. Okay, lets forget about them.

Montreal - IMO Training Camp 2004

Dr. Recio has brought his amazing set of "Cuban" dominoes which go up to (9,9) instead of (6,6). We have wasted a lot of precious training time making long domino chains and playing "Capture the Flag". In the game one player builds a castle and hides the flag in it. The other player uses the remaining dominoes to knock down the flag using a series of domino effects. David made the most artistic chains, however mine were more effective in terms of achieving the goal. Janos engineered the best castles. These required 12 to 15 explosions. One time, I made a very high and unstable tower. David decided to destroy it (to get more dominoes for his himself to play with) and he made a long chain of dominoes leading up to my castle. But David forgot that chains go both ways, so when he was about to knock it down, I just triggered his chain from the other end!

Wow Oleg, you guys play such intelligent games at IMO camp. At the IPhO camp in Vancouver, all we played was Counterstrike!

Oleg instead of playing “the intelligent games “such as domino in IMO camp, gather every one to play halo. The second one is out. You can start playing now. So don’t waste another min on math. Get halo and start playing NOW!
