The most common domino-sets are called Double-Sixes, with tiles 
running from blank-blank through six-six.  For real fanatics,
there are Double-Nines, and if players have fallen off the deep
end, Double-Twelves (blank-blank through twelve-twelve).

Seems to me that size and spacing on the tiles Hank has been
worrying indicate a set of Double-Sixes, making the "It's twelve"
correct, but it is quite possible that Hank has one of the more
substantial sets to draw from.
