Thanks for the information, and this is a proper correction.  What I meant
to say, was that the European introduction of dominos (outside of the domino
influenced playing-cards) was in the late 18th century.  An example of being
too hasty while composing a message.

John, a further question now that you have been looking into this area.
Have you discovered when "positional" domino games were first started?  I
presume that most of the references you mention are, if known, for games
that played more like playing cards.
