Handmade In England
All of our chess boards, cases and books are handmade in England; our chess sets utilise our leather inlaying skills which were handed down by our founder, Geoffrey. As with all of our games, our luxury chess is customisable with colours, initials, logos and hand embossed messages. All of our board games are available in different finishes or colour combinations so please feel free to get in touch and design your board.
At Geoffrey Parker, we’re doing everything we can to protect our staff during this challenging time. Our talented team of craftsmen and women are working from home and on a rotation basis at our workshops to enable them to continue to work in isolation.
The shippin of our games will, however, take a little longer as we will be keeping finished products in isolation for a minimum of 48 hours after our quality control check before they are shipped. This is to ensure once boxed up, your item it has been isolated for a minimum of 72 hours.
Our small family business is not alone in this global crisis; however, we understand how board games can help with mental health during this time. We would encourage everybody in isolation to play games with those they are isolated with, teach young children games such as backgammon to help with strategy and basic math.
If you need any additional resources for this please visit our Facebook page where we will be sharing information.
If you’d like to design your own backgammon board, please visit our online design tool.
Our team are working remotely, so if you have any questions please don’t hesistate to contact us via online chat, email or phone.
Wishing you all well, and good health, from the whole team at Geoffrey Parker.
