Originating sometime around the 3rd millennium B.C., few games have such a long-standing history as that of backgammon; a game of logic, intelligence, risk and tradition. These unique backgammon sets were designed in PH style, to honor this age-old game.
Hand crafted by skilled artisans who have been manufacturing classic board games since 1948 in the U.S., these backgammon sets are carefully engineered to cradle all of the game components with care.
All wood components are hand picked directly from lumberyards to ensure strength and proper drying via kiln or an adequate amount of time after milling. All corners are finger grooved for maximum strength and long-term stability. The checkers and dice are made of high quality resin and are unmatched in weight and sound. The cork in each board is sourced from Portugal and is sealed with a proprietary lacquer mixture to ensure durability and a highly functional playing surface.
Each board is made-to-order so please allow +/- 2 weeks from date of order. Monogramming available - please email firstname.lastname@example.org for monogram specifics and pricing.
