W hen you were lit­tle, you prob­a­bly played with domi­noes. But for thou­sands of years, adults have used them for gam­bling – and for­tune-telling. The ear­li­est domi­noes are 2,000 years old and herald from China where they’re still used to­day as a div­ina­tion method. The Chi­nese sets have 21 tiles with names like Heaven (for six-six), and Plum Flower (for five-five). But in the 18th Cen­tury when the game ar­rived in Europe, ex­tra blanks were added, which in­creased the num­ber of tiles to 28.
