  • Anyone remember orange hexagonal dominoes, maybe called hexominoes 1970s

    Hello all, 1st post.

    Fantastic forum, which I have been browsing for a short while now.

    Anyone remember orange hexagonal dominoes?

    They might have been called hexominoes.
    I remember getting these as a treat on a trip out with mum.
    They were played a bit like Triominoes, but were hexagonal. The pieces were orange and about 2.5 inches across. Can't remember if they had numbers or dots. The pieces came in a tube - cant remember if the tube itself was hexagonal or round.
    They were bought in Lewis's in Argyle Street in Glasgow in the early 1970s - don't know if that shop still exists.

    I would love to own a set of these again, but just for now to see a picture of them would be good.

    Have hunted high and low online for years now and no luck.

    Any leads welcome

    Only thing I can think of is Tri-ominos

            Here is a really bad mock up of what the pieces looked like from memory
