The plains of the Serengeti are famous for the 'Big Five', but the obvious inspiration for this backgammon set from Hector Saxe was the enormous Nile crocodiles of the Grumeti River.
This crocodile-imprinted green leather backgammon set, crafted by the Parisian artisans of Hector Saxe, features nickel-plated hardware, with key-locking clasps, protective corners, and high quality hinges, perfect for pre- or post-safari play.
Open up the case to explore its fine grey leather field, with inlaid white and chateau green croco leather points. The thick stones are high gloss mother of pearl, and have a perfect playing weight, not to mention their dazzling coloring, white and emerald green.
This luxurious leather Hector Saxe backgammon set comes complete with stones, dice, cups, and a doubling cube.
