Backgammon board

Backgammon set

Backgammon is a classic game and one of the oldest traditional games in the world. It has classic designs of pointed triangular spaces in altering colours and a simplistic outer design. The beauty of backgammon can very well be in it’s simplicity if it is made of the quality and care required.

These backgammon boards that we have are all designed and created in Greece by the Manopoulos company. These are amazing backgammon games for your games club or to display in your living room.

Manopoulos backgammon set

Manopoulos backgammon board is constructed in various different types of wood, mahogany, oak, walnut and wenge wood. Although some sets include the aspect of mother of pearl, this variety is minimalistic and focuses more on the quality of the wood bringing out the design and colours.

They are veneered wood that has been inlaid and polished off by skilled artisans in Greece. The backgammon sets are completed with acrylic black and white checkers and we also provide accessories such as backgammon shakers and dice alongside our storage bags.

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

Please browse through the huge range of styles we have in different categories on our site to find what is suited best to you. Although the traditional style of backgammon in the UK is leather, the wooden classic designs may be what’s currently extremely popular in the market in the UK.

Although most board games are considered as toys for children, the very specific traditional board games that we sell here at Chessgammon aren’t just to play on but a genuine show piece for your living room or dining room table.
