Manopoulos Backgammon Set

Chessgammon are proud to represent a special company in Manopoulos in stocking their finest and most natural selection of backgammon set with us. The company have been manufacturing their own backgammon sets since the 1970’s from Greece. They produce some of the finest wooden backgammon board using natural and organic wooden products such as Mahogany, Olive, Oak, Wenge and Walnut. These special pieces of art have been carefully manufactured by hand by skilled artisans.

We are proud to announce our new and working relationship with the company due to similar goals in providing the highest quality backgammon boards at reasonable and affordable prices. The history of the company actually began with their well known founder George Manopoulos in 1968.

He would initially play the game of backgammon with his father as a recreational hobby, however all was to change as he started studying in the University of Athens where he started to develop handcrafted products.

These handcrafted products started to gain attention locally and so George decided to go ahead and open a small shop at the heart of Athens. Due to the demand and popularity of George’s well made handicrafts, he decided to implement a workshop within 5 years of opening his stall.

Following almost a decade in production of quality traditional board games, The company would go on to become a well known and established brand in Europe and a recognised product amongst their customers and collectors.
