Backgammon is one of the oldest board games known to humanity, with roots potentially extending to the ancient Persian Empire some 5,000 years ago. Luckily for modern players, we don’t need to carve our own pieces from wood and bone anymore. Everything we need to play is included in this beautifully constructed deluxe wooden backgammon set, which features inlay work inside and out, interior felt detailing, and wooden components.
How to Play
A game for two players, each player starts with 30 checkers across 24 triangles. As you roll the dice, you move your checkers around and off the board. The player who gets all their checkers off first is the winner.
Don’t let this simple premise fool you! This is a game full of traps and strategy that can occupy friends and family for hours.
This wooden backgammon set comes complete with handy magnetic closures, 30 checkers, 4 dice, 2 wooden cups, and 1 doubling cube.
