Our classic range collection of backgammon and chess boards has vast array of designs, we have the most popular of design available in the mosaic mother of pearl and a very unique walnut wood overlay.

These particular boards are crafted with a template of the sides initially. The top and the bottom portion of the board are crafted separately. This part of the board involves carefully imprinting an overlay design across the surface.

The sides and the faces of the boards are then brought together with tough and durable wooden blue. These boards are smooth with no signs of bolts or screws visible, after all a stunning backgammon board should certainly show the correct finish. These boards, once complete of glossed down individually and a smooth polish is applied to a perfectly compatible chess and backgammon board

These type of chess sets are actually a recent addition to our range, again the chess sets come in a varied number of designs and are the best chess starter packs for those starting our young. The game of chess starts out quite young, we start to gain interest in our years at school.

These chess sets are very much for those who wish to get into chess and often for parents to guide their children on the game of chess. High quality chess sets that don’t require much care and very durable as they are not crafted from solid wood.

This particular type of chess set does not include staunton chess pieces, rather more smaller and subtle designs that are not completely crafted by hand. over all the set is a wooden chess board accompanied by chessmen, but very much falls as a start/economy range pack.

Materials used in Our Sets

Both our flat board and foldable classic range chess sets are crafted from basic materials. This includes the base material being mdf wood. This man made material is ofcourse incredibly durable, responsible for  a large range of furniture and kitchenware as well a lot of other board games on the market. The overlay is made from polystyrene, achieving an very smooth, silky and elegant flat surface.

Foldable and flat board sizes

The foldable classic range boards are primarily available in 19 and 20 inch size. We feel based on feedback from our customers, they prefer the feel of a large playing surface but at the same time would welcome the convenient nature of folding the board and pieces away into a small compartment, ready to play on the next family night.

The flat board only comes in 1 size and this is the 14 inch size, as mentioned above, the 14 inch size is perfect for a starter, who is very much just getting used to the idea of chess and ofcourse with the potential of buying a larger, more expensive set when older and more responsible.
