Manopoulos Oak and American Walnut Backgammon with Side Racks - Medium

It's one of the world’s oldest and most loved games, so beautifully designed you’ll want to leave it on display even when it’s not in play. The Oak & American Walnut Backgammon Set from Manopoulos will make a perfect gift for the traditional games enthusiast and a delightful addition to any living room or games room.   

The case is expertly hand-crafted from real walnut veneers on solid wood, each piece featuring beautifully unique grain, meaning no two sets are the same.  

Twin branded gold tone clasps open to an exceptionally smooth playing surface. Using the traditional art of marquetry, a striking, white oak veneer is inlaid with contrasting mahogany and walnut playing points and decorative patterns. Handy side racks are perfect for storage.  

Colour-coded mother-of-pearl style checkers, 2 pairs of dice, a doubling cube and a set of wooden shakers are included – everything you need for a game.  

A personalised message can be engraved on a brass plate for a special gift.
