Leather throughout, our Backgammon has magnetic wooden and inlaid leather stones/checkers which are built extra tall to make it easier to play. Miniature Staunton style boxwood chessmen are also magnetised and look handsome atop the inlaid leather chessboard set into the lid of this little case; which in turn is closed with a hidden magnet. Even the “bar” is magnetised so that taken stones/checkers are stable during play. Both chessmen and stones/checkers safely stow within the case while on the move.
All thirteen of our usual Dauphin Calf leather colours can be chosen for this miniature travel set; place a deposit and a member of our design team will be in touch to discuss colour combinations and the fine details of your design.

With our specially tanned super-fast gaming leather on the inside and the quintessentially English Bridle Hide case, these bridle hide backgammon sets will be the envy of everyone.
£2,750.00 – £4,000.00
Our Leather and Acrylic backgammon set is just as luxurious as our other Geoffrey Parker full leather & leather and metal boards; the only difference is the acrylic stones and the doubling cube.
This set uses the classic acrylic checker which many backgammon players still love to use; our sets also feature the traditional acrylic doubling cube all set within our luxurious leather backgammon set.
Why Choose an Acrylic Checker?
The acrylic checkers offer a more cost-effective option to our luxury games without losing the beauty of a Geoffrey Parker board. It also depends on your personal preference as a player; many love to stick to the checkers they first learned with, while others love the feel of the addition of leather and weight. The choice is yours.
£5,075.00 – £6,475.00Incorporating water snake into our backgammon designs makes for an exceptionally luxury game! Looking for a backgammon set which showcases exotic materials and incredible craftsmanship? Our Watersnake backgammons are beautiful and a joy to play on.
Hardwicke’s Sea or Water Snakeskins are sought from our tanners in Thailand and offer a huge array of beautiful colours for our craftsmen to work with. The lighter colours show the spin markings making the skins even more exotic in look. Unlike most snake skins, water snake does not have scales that lift up, as this would be a problem when playing a friction-based game like Backgammon.
These boards are available with a Swarovski trim to add an extra sparkle or without, the choice is with you as always. As we often order in the snakeskin to order please submit an enquiry and we can discuss colour options and lead times.
£2,750.00 – £4,000.00
Bringing the classic Gentleman’s club feel to our luxury backgammon boards; our Billiard Cloth Backgammon sets have all the features of our award-winning backgammons with a leather & cloth field and acrylic checkers.
Quintessentially English; utilising Yorkshire cloth used for military uniforms both past & present, as a substitute to leather, our Billiard Cloth backgammons create both a professional & beautiful board.
Why Choose Billiard Cloth?
Much like our acrylic checkers, familiarity and nostalgia will play a part in choosing this style of backgammon. However, it is undeniable that our cloth creates a slick & fast surface for a speedy game which can make this version of backgammon preferable over its all-leather counterpart. As always, the choice is yours.
£4,100.00 – £5,025.00An ever-growing Geoffrey Parker favourite; semi-perforated leather gives a contemporary super-car feel to our luxury backgammon sets.
Available in black and racing red hides, our Automotive hide is synonymous with supercar marques the like of McLaren and Lamborghini who have used this for their luxury interiors. In fact, we have been asked to make a few Backgammon to match a number of car interiors over the years.
However, despite its luxuriously soft feel, it is only suitable for cases and dice cups as the little holes in the leather form a vacuum when used as a playing field and slow play down considerably. So we twin this with our specially tanned for Backgammon leather; our Dauphin calf for the inside of the cases. This makes for a splendid marriage.
All the usual professional specifications are included in the build as on our other custom backgammons and these special editions are available in all sizes and in our signature contemporary leather & metal specification.
