Equal parts danger and excitement, this exquisite backgammon board by the incomparable Hector Saxe is a master class in stark elegance. Each time you open the velvet leather case on it's whisper-quiet solid brass clasps, it unveils hand-painted spears of white and black on inlaid leather - a reminder of good vs. evil, light vs. dark - and most tellingly, the sharp contrast between having your own Hector Saxe and just wishing you did.
But don't think there isn't room for shades of grey in your game play. One turn you might blitz with a staccato roll of the polished resin dice out of a leather-cased cup. And the next you'll be sliding supremely smooth checkers to safe haven. The ominous click as you stack your luxury backgammon checkers after bearing off sounds like a clock slowly ticking down the minutes to a bottomless black pit of despair for opponents. But rest assured, as clear as black from white, they'll quickly recover their good humor. They may even offer to shut the board for you, pensively lock it with one of the two brass keys, then slowly walk it over to your shelf, stealing a last few caresses of the exquisite python imprinted leather.
