Since 1958

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 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 Parker who still believes 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 compares to the original…

Luxury Games; Only the Best

The finest materials, make the finest products…

When you’re purchasing from Geoffrey Parker you can rest assured we’re always using the finest materials. From the highest grade leather to ethically sourced exotic materials.

As a company, we’re also trying to be eco friendly where possible this includes sourcing packaging locally and using recycled foam pellets for shipping. On top of this our products are naturally quite eco friendly due to the natural materials used in them. Over the last few years we’ve also been asked to produce vegan backgammon boards for this we’ve used a high quality leather effect paper to create a board which looks just like a normal Geoffrey Parker leather board. Almost anything is possible here at Geoffrey Parker.

Designed and Handmade In House

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Meet The Team
