Chess and backgammon set
A chess and backgammon set (or what we like to call, the “chessgammon” set) is something that is quite unique, something that is 2 in 1 or can also be 3 in 1 if you include checkers. The backgammon board is folden away on the inside and when opened up from the inside, the backgammon board is displayed.
However, on the outside of the set, you are able to play chess on the chess board. Many of our customer base are fans of both games so much so, that we have been requested to keep chess and backgammon sets on our website. The sets are completely equipped with the tools you may need for both games. You will recieve backgammon pieces which can also be used for draughts pieces, chessmen , dice, shakers and so on.

Our classic range boards encompass many different colours and patterns, the boards are incredibly lightweight and in actual fact the chess boards are quite large, each chess square is much larger than that fo our luxury range. The set itself is held together by a metal clasp on the side. We provide these sets with some lightweight wooden chessmen. This is the perfect set for your children, fairly cheap and a great beginner set for anyone who wants to practice chess.
In this range, we have fantastic Helena chess and backgammon sets carved out of solid ebony, rosewood and walnut wood and inlaid with very selicate small designs around the border of the board. These boards tend to have a thicker outside border and a smaller playing field but we do think that they are a perfect fit for our 3″ staunton carved chess pieces. The chess pieces are made of sheesham and boxwood crafted by Artisans in India. It would take a number of years for a craftsmen to acquire such skill and experience.
The staunton chessmen we stock are fantastic quality, entirely solid wooden. We include these only in our Helena chess and backgammon sets as well as a number of our chess sets. We match these to the type of board they are being paired with. The ebonised chessmen are well suited to the Helena black foldable sets and in the same way we pair the sheesham chess pieces with our rosewood boards to suit the mahogany colour. Each of the types of wood are placed with the maple wood to have the two main colours of each set.
The dimensions of the king height is 3″ and that is why the pieces are classed as 3″. This does not mean that all pieces are of this height but only the king. They have a felt base and are great fun to play games with. Our staunton pieces are best sellers and we sell these all over the uk and even internationally. Have a look at our chess pieces or staunton range categories for more details.
