Would Chinese dominoes be a possible choice?  You can get sets of the
easily and there are many games with them.  They are usually used like
playing cards rather than "end matching" game devices.  In particular, Pai
Gow  ("make Nine") is a gambling game played with the tiles in Casinos all
over the world which has a "Traditional way" of setting the tiles that is
mathematically flawed, so it is a good programming problem.    I was going
to use it as an exercise in my classes at the last school at which I
taught.
