Dominoes by M. Overlin, P. Beard, I. Gasowski.

Part of the More After Dark collection.
I've always really liked the Dominoes module. At the time, it was a unique idea to create a screensaver out of game and there was something slightly fascinating about watching a game play out automatically on your screen. Okay, maybe I was easily entertained back then.
A small number of future After Dark modules would play on the theme of a game. It's something I wish was done more. Why not have a chess or checkers game as a module? The After Dark Games release came close as each game could also be used as a screen saver but they didn't capture the simplicity of this old Dominoes module.
Also, as with almost all the More After Dark modules, this runs absolutely fine on modern systems.
Plays a game of dominoes so you
don't have to.
