Backgammon sets for home and travel
The shapes and sizes which Backgammon sets come in are numerous. There are ones that are larger and sturdier which are perfect for home use, along with smaller travel versions, such as those with small magnetic pieces and clip-shut or zip-up cases. These travel versions can, as the name suggests, easily be packed away and played with, even when on the move.
The two player classic, or multiple player versions
Backgammon is, traditionally, a game for two players and there are many two player boards and sets to choose from. Sometimes, however, more than two people may like to play at once, especially in family situations. Multiplayer variations are available for such situations and family versions of the game are also available, allowing everyone to get involved.
Rare and luxurious sets
There are many standard Backgammon sets available, made by respected and well known brands. For those who would like something a bit more special though, there are various luxury boards and sets to be found, along with vintage items and rare collectable ones.
Every design, style and level of luxury can be found, from beautiful vintage wooden boards , to sets with leather and faux leather cases. Vintage cases made by big names in the fashion world such as Pierre Cardin are also available. Whether a standard set is required or something a bit more impressive is needed, there are multiple Backgammon sets to choose from that will fit the bill.
