The game of dominoes shares its diverse past with many cultures from east to west. Said to have originated in 12th century China and based on the paired couplings of rolling 6-sided dice, dominoes evolved with every culture to which it was introduced. Traders of the Marco Polo era brought dominoes to Europe in the 13th century. English immigrants, fresh from the 7 Years' War, then brought dominoes to North America, where the game evolved into the many variations we play today.
