  • Leather & Acrylic Backgammon

    £2,750.00£4,000.00

    Our Leather and Acrylic backgammon set is just as luxurious as our other Geoffrey Parker full leather & leather and metal boards; the only difference is the acrylic stones and the doubling cube.

    This set uses the classic acrylic checker which many backgammon players still love to use; our sets also feature the traditional acrylic doubling cube all set within our luxurious leather backgammon set.

    [maxbutton id=”3″]

    Why Choose an Acrylic Checker?

    The acrylic checkers offer a more cost-effective option to our luxury games without losing the beauty of a Geoffrey Parker board. It also depends on your personal preference as a player; many love to stick to the checkers they first learnt with, while others love the feel of the addition of leather and weight.

  • Automotive Hide Backgammon Sets

    £4,100.00£5,025.00
    An ever-growing Geoffrey Parker favourite; semi-perforated leather gives a contemporary super-car feel to our luxury backgammon sets.

    Available in black and racing red hides, our Automotive hide is synonymous with supercar marques the like of McLaren and Lamborghini who have used this for their luxury interiors. In fact, we have been asked to make a few Backgammon to match a number of car interiors over the years.

    [maxbutton id=”3″]

    However, despite its luxuriously soft feel, it is only suitable for cases and dice cups as the little holes in the leather form a vacuum when used as a playing field and slow play down considerably. So we twin this with our specially tanned for Backgammon leather; our Dauphin calf for the inside of the cases. This makes for a splendid marriage.

    All the usual professional specifications are included in the build as on our other custom backgammons and these special editions are available in all sizes and in our signature contemporary leather & metal specification.
