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.
£4,100.00 – £5,025.00

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.
£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.

Neatly stowed away within one attaché case is another attaché case!
Firstly there is our famous tournament size Backgammon, fully hand inlaid in leather (or wood) and available in all the usual specifications our Championship boards carry. Then lying inside is a slim professional folding Chessboard attaché; fully hand inlaid in matching leather livery and containing safely stowed in padded sumptuous suede; a chess set of your choosing. Of course, you may wish to take these to separate destinations or allow your friends to disappear to their suite with one or the other; but at the end of the day, they make easy bedfellows and can be neatly stowed away for when the next travel bug bites!
