Another fine old war game, Backgammon requires skill and practice very much like the game of chess. Like chess, it is a favourite cafe game in many European and Middle Eastern countries. Crafted from Sheesham wood by expert Indian craftsmen, the quality of the workmanship is exquisite. The dice are rustic wooden dice with hand-painted numbers. The counters are discs cut from Sheesham and Boxwood. (No dice cups included with these sets)
The medium set measures approximately 180mm x 300mm when closed. It weighs in at 1050g.
The large set measures approximately 200mm x 350mm when closed. It weighs in at 1400g.
This is a fantastic backgammon set worth every sent
Brilliant! Chess Africa were super quick and efficient and got me an emergency birthday present in a few days. The set itself is terrific - well made, lovely wood and inlays, unusual & quite striking.
Birthday present for my daughter. She's absolutely delighted with it.
Great service and fast delivery.
Makes a great gift and is sturdy enough that you can take it away with you without feeling like the board might get ruined. Great quality and service!
Beautifully made pieces and excellent service. Thank you x
