"Groups" is a little generic but easily understood.

"Tessera" is very accurate good, but at least not in my life, not a 
common word, I'd have to look it up to know what it meant if the above 
defn. wasn't provided for me.

Which you choose is entirely up to you. they both remove the confusion 
that "tiles" would bring and that's my main concern.
