Dominoes - HistoryIt's not totally clear when or where the game of dominoes was invented. Many historians believe the game was invented by the Chinese some time around 1100 AD and it eventually arrived in Europe some time during the 18th century. A game similar to dominoes was also found in Tutankhamen's tomb in Egypt, which dates all the way back to 1355 BC. Wherever dominoes may have been invented, it remains a popular game around the world. Each set of dominoes has 28 dominoes or tiles. Each rectangular tile has a line dividing its face into two square ends, which are each marked with a number of black spots or a blank space. The word "domino" is French for a black and white hood worn by priests, which is probably where the name of the game comes from.
