Create savepoint remembers the current layout with all the pieces you have selected until the program is closed. You can return to any savepoint layout later in the game. It is useful to make a savepoint at a moment when you are sure that all the selected pieces are correct, but you are not sure whether you are about to make a correct selection. Each savepoint shows its sequence number and the time it was made at.

Frequently Asked Questions
I spent a few hours trying to solve the game and still have not succeeded. Are you sure that DomiSol can always be solved?
Yes, each DomiSol layout has al least one solution. To convince yourself of that, you can click Solve the game in the Game menu and it will show you one of the possible solutions. However, you may prefer trying to solve the game yourself, as DomiSol will not offer you exactly the same layout again.Also, my advice is: don’t choose the pieces randomly; otherwise you can lose your patience before you solve the game. There are a few strategies that help a lot. Try to find them.
Why can I not choose to solve the same layout again?
The Domino Solitaire is a logic game, but it is also a patience game. It means it has a little bit of chance, luck and magic in it. Just like our life: nothing comes twice exactly the same. :-)
