Historically, dominoes were a small tile carved from bone or ivory, featuring small, round pips of inset ivory that collectively made up the early domino sets.
A game with ancient roots, the oldest known sets date back to c.1120 A.D. in China, and it is thought they were introduced to China from India before that.
It wasn't until the 18th Century that double six dominoes appeared in Europe where, over time, the game was adapted into the game we know and love today.
Standard dominoes sets today include 28 pieces. Each piece consists of a line dividing it into two squares and a number of spots in each square end.
This set of Double Six Dominoes, with mahogany case, from Jaques is a luxurious and timeless addition to your traditional games collection.
