42, The National Game of Texas

The Star Telegram covers “42”, a local dominoes variant it (and Wikipedia) claim is the “national game of Texas”. Could be. It dates back to 1887. It was created by two Baptist kids who were forbidden to play with card and so were messing around with dominoes.

Celebrity fans include Willie Nelson and President George W. and Laura Bush. The article includes play instructions and links to play online.
