Travel backgammon set

Original Range

Our original range sets for travel backgammon are handmade by skilled craftmen based in Amritsar India.

These boards can be made with a range of different woods, particularly involving the best of  and extremely hard to source, sheesham wood.

You will love our sets, which have been put together by artisans with only the best experience and skill that cannot be found in london or anywhere in the UK.

When it comes to wooden handicrafts, India is the place for a perfect wooden backgammon set!

The wood used in this particular type of travel backgammon sets need to be prepared accordingly to prevent warping of the board itself.

When manufacturers started designing these particular backgammon boards, they came across great difficulty due to the number boards warping.

They then found ways to improve the quality of these boards and the secret was in the preparation of the range of different woods used to handcraft this wonderful backgammon set.

The wood used needs to be prepared and needs to be left to dry under a heated climate, any damp on the board will mean the board is prone to defect after it has been manufactured.

Classic game

Typically the popular british design of travel backgammon is in the leather case however there are numbers of different styles of backgammon produced all over the world.

The leather backgammon set is produced mainly in china and our manopoulos board range is made in Greece.

We also have our Helena backgammon board well known for its beauty, which are produced in Turkey.

The leather sets are incredibly popular for something a little more sophisticated and modern however if you require a special gift, we would highly recommend the wooden backgammon set.

Handmade is not easy to source and would definitely make for an exciting new present.

Even if your younger ones are looking for toys, a lot of our games can be played by a younger target audience and allow them to develop a lot of educational skills whilst having fun.

Please take a look through our numerous categories on our website and see the range of design for a fantastic price.

Bring joy and happiness to those you love and find them the ideal present only on Chessgammon! Backgammon sets are available in all different colours such as gray, blue, black, white and red.

Backgammon sets

We love to include all the finer things involved in backgammon games in each of our sets. You will recieve a dice, to play with, shakers for the dice to roll, rules booklets and a good quality storage bag for all your pieces- absolutely everything you could need for a thrilling game.

Travel backgammon is an area in marketing that isn’t actually very saturated, it’s hard to find a decent backgammon set that you can take to your trip to London.

We ensure that the good quality items that we stock on our site are enabled to actually allow our customers to do this, whether the game is leather, magnetic, or wooden.

Types of Wood Used In Our Travel Range

our board on the inner surface are crafted primarily with sheesham, rosewood and boxwood. Rosewood out of these 3 types of wood tends to be more expensive due to its sparse availability.

Most travel backgammon sets handcrafted in india are manufactured with the inner surface completely finished with ebonywood.

However as a bespoke order we have discussed this particular difference with our manufacturers to allow the finishing of the inner surface in rosewood instead of ebonywood.

Each part of the inner surface has been inset by hand. A slight variation can cause the mosaic of the inner surface to completely disjoint. These skilled artisans can take upto weeks to prepare these particular types of boards due to skill needed to craft them.

This backgammon set also has a wooden partition to store the backgammon set, each set including a set of 15 sheehsam pieces and a set of 15 boxwood pieces.

The storage area is padded with a soft bright green velvet material to prevent any damage to the backgammon checkers. The outer surface of the backgammon board has teak plywood and each edge is sanded down to apply a smooth curve to each corner.

The board is then coated with a quality smooth gloss finish. The Travel set can be a special gift for anyone who is into the classic game range and allows you to enjoy life no matter where you are.

Many of the suppliers in India can also provide magnetic backgammon or even leather backgammon, we also currently stock leather backgammon which can be provided with pearl backgammon checkers.

The magnetic set is very popular in India itself as the design allows the white and black pieces to be set up in an ideal way, resistant to moving. However, we believe our sets are more sophisticated without the magnetic design.

A box is not required for the storage of these checkers as there is a section in the backgammon case where they can be kept safely.

If you are looking for a great present for your friend who simply cant get enough of visiting different cities in europe or loves to change location often, then a travel game set is perfect for them!
