Full Leather Board

Our full leather board is designed to truly stand out. With the help of the world-famous Backgammon player Paul Magriel, we designed the weighted leather checker. To accompany this, we created a full leather cube to complete our stunning full leather backgammon set.

Leather & Metal

Much like our Full Leather board, our Leather and Metal set can be finished in any of the different leather types.

One of our most popular boards, our Leather and Metal set features our weighted checkers in either gold or silver-gilt alongside our luxury doubling cube.

Leather & Wood

For those who love a more Mediterranean feel to their board. For some, the clack of the dice as they hit the wooden surface is what truly makes a backgammon board for them

Our leather and wooden boards feature the traditional Geoffrey Parker leather attache case with a Mediterranean style inlaid playing surface.

Billiard Cloth

Introducing our Billiard Cloth, for those who love the gaming feel of billiard cloth. This can be sourced in multiple different colours so please always request if you have a specific colour in mind.

Leather Choices

Bespoke Backgammon, Geoffrey Parker | Luxury Games

Dauphin Calf Leather

Our Dauphin calf leather is our traditional gaming leather, specially tanned for gaming it is one of our harder wearing leathers. Tobacco and wine stain resistant. This leather is perfect for our professional gamers and social players alike.

Bridle Hide Leather

Our luxury bridle hide; a leather we love, but don’t often use as it can age slightly quicker than our dauphin calf leather. To some, this adds character and grows better with age like a fine wine, to others it doesn’t look as perfect as the day they purchased it and therefore doesn’t have the same appeal.

Exotic Leathers

Our final option is our exotic range, this includes Aligator, Watersnake and Ostrich but we also work with other leathers; so, if you have a particular request. Our exotic collection features our professional gaming elements in a board fit for the finest home, yacht or jet.

For backgammon lovers and car enthusiasts alike. Our automotive and carbon fibre leathers are created to give you the perfect automotive feel with the added luxury of our leather playing surface.

We also work with luxury automotive brands to create limited-edition versions of our boards. One of our most popular was our Bentley board, featuring Bentley leather.
