Hi all, 

While we are on the subject of dominoes I came across this recently which I attempted to find out more about but got no answer from the author. If anyone knows more...

"Recently Europe's earliest known domino, from the late 15th century, was found at Einbeck in Germany, while 16th century pieces are known from Oxford, very similar in form to those used today".
