How many dominoes are there in a set?


The traditional domino set consists of 28 dominoes, colloquially nicknamed bonescardstilesticketsstones, or spinners. It is widely known the fact that each domino is a rectangular tile with a line dividing its face into two square ends.  Not too many people know the fact that dominoes first appeared in Italy during the 18th century.  Keep in mind the fact that European-style dominoes are traditionally made of ivory/bone, or a dark hardwood such as ebony.  It is interesting to know the fact that Dominoes can be played at a professional level, similar to poker.
