A set of double-six dominoes contains 28 tiles, with the numbers on the tiles range from 0 (or blank) to 6. There are seven suits (blank, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), each with seven members. A double-six is the "heaviest" domino; a double-blank is the "lightest" domino value. A double-six set is the most popular size of domino set, and allows you to play many of the most popular domino games (see Double-Six Domino Rules).
The game of Dominoes shares its diverse past with many cultures form the East to the West. Said to have originated in 12th century China and based on the paired couplings of rolling 6-sided dice, Dominoes evolved with every culture to which it was introduced. Traders of the Marco Polo era brought Dominoes to Europe in the 13th century. English immigrants, fresh from the Seven Years' War, then brought Dominoes to North America where the game evolved into the many variations we play today. In the tradition of making games worth giving, Front Porch Classics offers two classics in this decorative game box: Block and Draw Dominoes and Mexican Train.
