28th Domino World Championship 2022
The FIDO Domino World Championship is held annually since 2012 in the period from 27 to 31 December (before that on a fixed day within this period). The games are played in decentralised locations where participants form groups of 5 people.
Björn Andreas Wolst is Domino World Champion 2022!
After two years in which the Covid 19 pandemic had reduced the number of participants, this year there were again 30 players in four face-to-face events – only one was added online from Kiel, Germany, to Switzerland.
The leading FIDO nations were all involved again: played in Norway, Germany and Switzerland.
Four players managed to win two of the three rounds of play, so that it came down to their score – in his third game, Björn Andreas Wolst came second, which is why this ultimately tipped the scales in his favour.
Defending champion and 2021 World Champion Matthias Nolting finished slightly behind in 17th place this year. Nick Nolting, World Champion 2016, was runner-up this year. The best Norwegian participant was the runner-up from 2020, Sigrun Scheving Aas, who came third.
The fact that the only online player won the world title is a first-time curiosity and makes Björn the first virtual domino world champion in FIDO history. The screenshot shows him on the right, his fellow players from the last round and the online moderator on the left.
We warmly congratulate all the title holders and thank everyone for their participation!
