Old Northwest Trading Company's ACW009 "A Game of Bones" - Three Union Soldiers Playing Dominos

Domino games have been played by kings and presidents. The oldest known domino set was found in Tutankhamen's tomb, among the ruins of Thebes. Many different domino sets have been used for centuries in various parts of world to play a variety of domino games.

The soldiers of the American Civil War often played Dominoes (and other games) in camps between battles. The Double 9 sets were quite uncommon during Civil War times, but were around in small quantities. Most sets were Double 6 sets.
