The walnut tree blossoms in the spring; its tightly-grained timber is highly valued for its hard, dense resilience, and the way it polishes to a smooth satin finish.
Its Latin name translates to Jupiter's Acorn, or a nut fit for a god. And that's how you'll feel when you open the secure latches of this classically beautiful Greek walnut backgammon set to tackle your next game.
Prepare to scale Olympian heights on a playing surface that gleams with a rich walnut sheen and is elegantly accented with meticulously carved matte gold and ink-black points. Feel the weight of the dice and stones along with the tradition and history of the finest wood backgammon sets carefully created by generations of the Neroulia family of Greece.
