Dominoes, conventionally made from ivory or bone, are descendants of dice. The “bones” became known as dominoes from their resemblance to the style of a half-mask featuring a black and white pattern called domino. Western dominoes typically include 28 bones, with six bones having blank sides. This represents the outcome of the throw of one die. Dominoes, like playing cards are extremely versatile. There is a wide array of games that can be played with a set of dominoes.
