An association has been demonstrated between Domino playing and regional pain syndrome of the elbow joint among old Iraqi people. Reason for this are discussed. Haji Kasim and many of non-athletes aged people have been suffered from tennis, golfer elbow or olecranon bursitis, so more clarification is required whether the association is due to aging process or because of domino and the mechanical continuous trivial stress on the elbow or both. Also highlighting on the further contributing factors especially among general population would enhance our understanding of the degree to which they are preventable or treatable.
