Wiedenbrücker Domino Team Topples over 100,000 Dominoes!

From May 30th through June 1st, 2019, the Wiedenbrücker Domino Team (WDT) was busy setting up over 100,000 dominoes in a local gymnasium in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Germany. WDT consists of 7 professional German domino builders, who meet annually to organize a giant domino event. This is the eighth straight year that the builders have held this event, but this one was bigger and better than ever before. The builders were aiming for a grand total of 105,501 dominoes, an effort that would successfully break the team’s previous record of 87,197, which was set at last year’s WDT event. By the time the falldown on June 2nd rolled around, the builders had exceeded their expectations and set up a total of 108,982 dominoes!

Each year, the team’s domino event has a theme, an overarching idea that each domino project is based upon. This year, the theme was The Life in Domino. As the falldown progressed, the domino projects depicted situations sequentially from birth, childhood, adulthood, and finally, death. By the end, the falldown was a perfect success, with no fails or breaks along the way. According to WDT, 108,851 out of 108,982 dominoes toppled, resulting in a new record for the team, and a target to beat next year! Watch the falldown here!

Dutch Domino Team announces 2019 event with 350,000 dominoes!

Dutch Domino Team is a team of 8 talented domino builders from the Netherlands. The team recently announced on their YouTube channel, DutchDominoTeam, that they are planning a 2019 event with 350,000 dominoes, with the theme “Road to Fame: Emma’s Story.” You can watch the official trailer (which includes 100,00 dominoes!) here.

According to the YouTube description, the domino event will be about “a fictional character, Emma Smith, who would love to have a singing career. She goes viral with a video of her singing at a marketplace, and after winning a talent show, her popularity is higher than ever before. She moves to America, gets a contract there and scores number one hit after number one hit. By the time she’s 21, she has become a fully-fledged pop star. Everyone has heard of her! She throws a massive birthday party, not knowing that from that day her luck is about to turn against her…”

Dutch Domino Team plans to beat the Netherlands Domino Record, which the team also set only a year ago during DDT 2018. This national record currently stands at 222,222 dominoes, but hopefully for not much longer!

Hevesh5 launches new H5 Domino Community channel!

Over the years I’ve noticed there are two main groups of people who watch my videos. Of course there are those who enjoy the satisfying nature of dominoes falling, but there is also a significant number of people who are interested in the process of domino art, and who want videos that go really in-depth about the intricacies of domino art.

The idea is that this will be the channel made FOR the domino builders where people can interact with other domino builders around the world, learn from other builders' experiences, share ideas, new tricks, different ways of building, and thoughts/topics related to dominoes. It's kind of like the channel that I wish had existed when I first started building dominoes. I really want to invite the community to be a part of the channel and make it a centralized place for the inner domino community to connect. Through this channel, I hope that it can spread awareness of domino art, encourage builders to actively get involved in the domino community, create friendships and spur new domino clubs/events, and inspire kids to take on this awesome hobby :)

On the new channel, we will be starting a few series including featured builders, domino challenges, Q&A’s, community videos, as well as the typical Hevesh5 behind the scenes videos. So if this sounds like something you would be interested in being a part in, subscribe to the H5 Domino Community!
