What was the significance of the dominoes game in the Steiners’ living room? Do you know why dominoes are called “bones”?

I think dominoes can represent the forces of motion that has been set fourth by the Nazis in Eastern Europe as well as the lives of the people we are reading about. Dominoes represent cause and effect in motion. Dominoes are called "bones" because the earliest domino tiles were made from animal bones or ivory.
