This set of cardboard dominoes reminded me of ninth grade, playing paper chess in the school library during free-study periods. Whenever a teacher seemed too close to us, we’d – carefully – cover the board with a notebook. Too vigorous a cover-up caused a breeze that shifted the pieces. We started a lot of more games than we finished.
