Itaca, home to Ulysses, the ancient King of Greeks, and the hero of Homer's epic poem "The Odyssey", is the inspiration behind this eye-popping wood backgammon set from Dal Negro.
With a solid maple wood frame, this elegant case opens up to reveal a colorful tulip wood playing surface, featuring inlaid crimson and marine points, with tasty mother-of-pearl designed checkers that should come with a "Do Not Eat" warning sign.
However, it doesn't just look extraordinary. You will also appreciate the "invisible" cylinder hinges that add a touch of sophistication to this backgammon set, as well as the meticulously concealed magnetic closures, both Dal Negro trademarks and a sign of quality craftsmanship and materials.
This backgammon set comes complete with dice cups, dice, doubling cube, velvet pouch, and rules booklet.
