A dominoes game with questions and statements on forces and weight and mass instead of answers.
- Use and rearrange the formula Pressure = Force/Area
- A small force exerted over a small area can exert a large pressure and can apply this to everyday situations.
- Units for pressure are N/m2 or Pascals(Pa)
- 1N/m2 = 1 Pa
- Pressure exerted in a liquid provides upthrust and the relationship between floating and sinking.
- Cause of atmospheric pressure and why it varies with altitude.

Rules of the Game
- Each player selects seven dominos from the top of the face-down pile and holds them in their hand like playing cards.
- The player whose surname begins with a letter closest to the letter A starts and play proceed in a clockwise direction.
- Dominos can be matched exactly, or a name can be matched with a symbol or descriptions, sketches and circuit diagrams can be matched.
- If a player thinks a match is wrong they can challenge. If the challenger is correct, they give a card from their own hand to the challenged player. If the challenged player is correct, they give a card from their hand to the challenger. Pupils are encouraged to check their books for the correct answer and consult their teacher if a consensus is not reached.
- If a player cannot play a domino, they pick up from the face down pile and can play if possible or add it to their hand.
