Backgammon SetHaving your own backgammon set is a must! Any backgammon fan will tell you, and they’re right. The urge to play simply has to be satisfied, especially if you like the game just a bit or are new to it. Setting up takes only seconds, yet playing provides hours of enjoyment. Having a set around makes this very easy.
Backgammon, likely originated around 3,000 BC in Persia, is played everywhere. A backgammon set includes a pair of dice, 30 checkers, and a board with 24 spaces or points. You move based on dice roll numbers. The first player to remove (“bear off”) their checkers wins. You’ll thrill at learning how to block and hit your opponent.
You can buy many backgammon set variations. The perfect “table game,” it’s ideal for inclement weather or nighttime fun. Backgammon is exciting thanks its mix of strategy and luck. You can get a stylish oak, maple or walnut backgammon set, with handsome inlays. Or, buy a modest card and linen set: light and quick to move about.
Boxed backgammon sets are handy for traveling or carrying anywhere. For the widest selection, buy from Jaques of London, makers of superior games and sports equipment since 1795. You can get 11-, 15- and 19-inch versions, from simple to deluxe, even with a chess set combination. Fun, multiplied!
