The crafty gents at Hector Saxe have dipped back into the Seventies' jet set stylings to resurrect this luxury backgammon board. These days you're likely to find it in the manicured hands of media barons and internet billionaires.
If you're so lucky to get one, the first thing you'll notice is the stately faux lizard exterior – a gorgeous blend of brass trimmings, tan and chocolate brown. Behind locking clasps (of course) are the jewel-like accessories Hector Saxe is known for: high gloss mother of pearl chips, dice cups to wedge snug in the palm of your hand, and a smooth playing surface of padded felt to muffle the clatter of dice rolls in your corner office.
All right, maybe you can't have the private jet. But if you're ready to open a new chapter in the history of great games, this is the luxury backgammon board for you.
