Wycliffe Brothers® Tournament Backgammon Set - Black with Black Field - Gen II
Reg. Price: $325.00
Sale Price: $240.00
We are excited to announce the arrival of the highly anticipated Generation II series of backgammon sets from The Wycliffe Brothers®. As with their predecessors, these stunning backgammon sets offer all the features found in high-end professional models at an affordable price, and are available exclusively from GammonVillage.
This full-size backgammon set is built around an ultra smooth playing surface, known as V-Fiber™. Similar in texture to felt or microfiber, this proprietary material was developed exclusively by The Wycliffe Brothers, satisfying the two most important criteria for a backgammon playing surface: 1) the checkers glide effortlessly on a luxurious and perfectly smooth field, and 2) the playing surface offers the perfect amount of friction to ensure your checkers remain in place if the board is bumped or moved.
New to the Generation II series are the phenomenal marbleized checkers, so highly polished you'll find yourself transfixed by their beauty. Just shy of 1/2" thickness (11mm), these oversized checkers significantly reduce the instances of cocked dice, so you spend more time on game play rather than re-rolling your dice. If you're looking for heavy checkers, you've found them. Weighing in at a whopping 20 grams each, it's official - these are the new King of backgammon checkers!
Each backgammon set comes equipped with professional dice cups, ergonomically designed to fit your hand perfectly, and lined with the same V-Fiber™ to keep the noise of shaking to an absolute minimum. You'll also appreciate the tournament grade trip-lip, just to make sure the dice fall randomly and cannot be manipulated.
Also new to Generation II is the absolutely decadent oversized doubling cube, measuring 1-3/4" (42mm). When it's time to double, you can now do so with authority! Each case also features reinforced luggage-style handle and nickel plated locks.
"I highly recommend the Wycliffe Brothers® Tournament backgammon sets. There are so many things to love about these boards: incredibly smooth playing surface, enormous checkers, professional grade cups, cube, and dice...not to mention the unbelievable price! Dollar for dollar, these are the best backgammon sets in the world."
