    the difference between "most cards in a domino chain" and "longest card domino chain" is:

    in 'most cards in a domino chain'; Besides the first card, any card may have two cards leaning on it, (like the third card in this chain)...

    in 'longest card domino chain', only one card may lean on the card before it

    getting all the cards in one straight line is a little more difficult, that's why I submitted both categories. sorry for the confusion. I am open for any name ideas.

      Thanks Dan, but this record is mislabeled, this is the "most cards in a card domino chain," The difference is that in this record the chain may split into two (or more) chains. The "longest playing card domino chain" should be one long chain.

      Is 108 the right count? I thought we were just counting the longest successful component, not the attempts with gaps in them.

      yes, only the successful attempt is counted.

      I'm still confused. Doesn't "successful attempt" = "longest playing card domino chain"?

      well, this is two decks wide but only one deck long. the "longest" should be in a straight line.

      Hey Tai, you think 'Most Playing Cards Used In A Domino Chain' should be more appropriate? or 'Longest Two-Deck Playing Card Domino Chain' ...I'm a little confused too after reading this thread
