About Geoffrey Parker Games

Makers of the World's
finest Board Games

Founded by Geoffrey in 1958, Geoffrey Parker Games started making miniature leather-bound poetry & literature books. Since then we’ve grown as a company and become synonymous with luxury board games, games tables & custom projects.

 

Geoffrey Parker Games is now in its third generation yet still thrives on the same principles as when it first started. Today, it’s run by Elliot and Max Parker who still believe in high quality, exquisite craftsmanship and market-leading designs. Geoffrey first created our leather backgammon set in 1961. Since then, the design has been copied a number of times, but none of these copies compare to the original…

Traditional Craftsmanship

We believe every person has an individual style. So why should every product be the same? We make all of our products by hand, meaning  you can customise almost every element of it. After all, board games are personal.Elliot ParkerSales Director

In recent years we’ve modernised the business but kept the fundamentals the same. We now offer online shopping but still believe customer service is key. While you may place the order online, all of the customisations are discussed with a member of our team. You will still receive our first class service & the product of your dreams.

Geoffrey Parker Games Historical Moments

Our company history is rather long; Geoffrey had a very interesting life, from Squadron Leader of an elite squadron during WW2, to his pig farming days. We’ve summarised a selection of notable events on our time line & below is our company movie where you can learn all about the company, our team and the projects we have been involved in…

1958

Geoffrey founded his company in Wimbish, Essex, making miniature leather-bound books after the war to supplement his income breeding pigs.

1961

In 1961 Richard Dunhil, current Life President of the World famous luxury  Dunhill brand, asked Geoffrey to make him a chess set. This was just the beginning of Geoffrey & his team making board games.

1972

From that first Chessboard, Backgammon was the next obvious luxury game where precise inlaying was de rigueur. By the early Seventies, the Company had already established itself as No.1 in The World for luxury board games. This culminated in Chess when Geoffrey was commissioned to make the leather boxes and chessboards for the famous Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer’s 1972 World Championship battle in Reykjavik, Iceland.

1977

As Geoffrey’s son Max started his career he decided to join the family business. In 1977 Max joined the business and started working closely alongside his father.

2000

After a long and happy life, in 2000, Geoffrey passed away leaving a legacy of luxury products and fine craftsmanship. To this day the business still lives in the grounds of Geoffreys’s farm house.

2012

In 2012 Geoffrey’s grandson, and Max’s son, Elliot, joins the family business working alongside his father like the generation before him.

2018

Geoffrey’s son, Max begins a new venture; a luxury B&B leaving much of the day to day running of the company in Elliot’s capable hands.

A testament to our craft; celebrities, musicians, World leaders, sportsmen, professionals & major brands are amongst our 60+ year customer list...

With over a 60-years experience & knowledge in leatherwork, our expertise are second to none. Our craftsmen and women are trained in-house over a period of five years. While the basic training may take five years, our skills and expectation of perfection can take a lifetime to master and become a top craftsman/woman at Geoffrey Parker Games.

Every product we make is a custom piece; whether you wish to choose your colours, add a logo or emboss a special message. Our craftsmen work hard to ensure no matter what you order, you’re always in awe when it’s delivered. Custom designs are also encouraged, from custom boxes to luxury packaging projects.

Due to the custom nature of our luxury games, many hold personal information or our designs are subject to NDAs, however, we can share a small handful of client’s who we have had the pleasure to make for over our history:
