           TRIVIA TODAY - Tuesday, June 10, 2008 
       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 
------------------------------------------------------------ 
Greetings Infomaniacs,

Over this past weekend, a few friends and I had an intense 
Scrabble competition that I managed to win with the word 
"invoke." Good one, huh? Anyway, the night of game playing 
inspired today's Trivia edition, which is packed full of 
board game trivia! 

Enjoy!

Dominoes were first played in the courts of Venice and 
Naples in Italy. The tiles were originally constructed by 
gluing and pinning two sheets of ebony on either side of 
the bone tile. This prevented cheating by being able to see 
the pip value from the back of the tile in certain lights.

A board game that appeared very similar to checkers (called
