Sit down on milk crates and play dominoes
Capicu! Slam it down, tell them adios
Latinos love to play the game of Dominoes, especially outside. Sometimes, if you don’t have a chair, you’ll get a milk crate from the street or the local bodega to play.
Capicu is a Puerto Rican Dominoes term. It refers to a domino that is able to connect to both ends of the Domino tile. It’s not an easy move to make, most games don’t end in capicu, but when they do, it’s an amazing sight. Think of it as the Dominoes version of the checkmate.
