For African people, they will want a representation for traditional Awele bowls
(played with dried seeds).
For Asiatic people, they will want their own dominoes, the Mahjongs, which are
intermediate between card decks and dominoes, with well-known series, and small
trump-like series (flowers, winds...). Same problem about orientation, but I'm
not sure how one would represent the 3D constructions... Unless there are games
using them in a 2D surface.
