It was hard for me to decide which Silverman & Co. 19-inch premium backgammon set to buy. It was between the classic green field with black & white points and grey field with red & blue points in black case. I settled on the black with white & black points. It is a very well made entry level backgammon set. Even though it isn't advertised as a tournament sized set, it does fall in the requirements for USBGF tournament board measurements. So it will work as a tournament set if this 19-inch set is all you have. Just would have to obtain precision dice since the dice that comes with this set is retail dice and not precision dice. Other than that it is tournament ready. The doubling cube is basic and slightly smaller than most doubling cubes but has clear large font engraved on the cube. It gets the job done. The checkers are 40mm which is slightly bigger than 1-1/2 inch. Keep this in mind in case you want checkers other than what is provided in this set. Most 1-1/2 inch diameter checkers are in the 36mm-38mm size range. There are small spacing plate that are in both checker trays. These are useful to use with checkers that are thinner than the 10mm stock checkers that come with this set. Although I would recommend using some foam to place in the checker trays to stabilize the spacing plates. This Silverman & Co. 19-inch set has become my go to Backgammon set. Big enough to really enjoy the game yet small enough to travel with ease. It is just the right size for my needs of casual play. Having inlaid points is a real plus. Smoother checker movement and better dice rolls. Inlaid points is the way to go. I am really happy that I decided to purchase this set. It has given me some good memories already. I am sure it will give you many years of enjoyment as it will give me. I highly recommend getting this set if you are a beginner backgammon player who wants a set with better quality over the cheap options Amazon has to offer.

You enjoy the finer things in life. Quality is important to you. You appreciate fine craftsmanship, attention to detail, and exquisite design. However, the high cost required to satisfy your taste may require careful financial planning. Not anymore! We are pleased to announce the arrival of the spectacular Silverman & Co. premium backgammon sets. These exceptional products set a new standard for quality at a price that cannot be beaten.

The exterior is finished in premium leatherette, assembled with uncompromising precision and attention to detail. The playing surface is an ultra fine padded felt, offering a luxurious glide for the checkers that will delight your senses. The checkers are a hefty 1.5" in diameter and 3/8" thick. Best of all, the checkers fit perfectly in the home board, with minimal gap when side by side.

When game play is over, and you're ready to pack up, you'll also appreciate how snugly the checkers fit in the side storage compartments, making closing the board trouble-free (no tilting checkers!) and keeping everything secure for when you pack up the board and head on to your next victory.

There's more! You'll also appreciate the ergonomic oval dice cups, with smooth felt lining (to reduce noise) and with tournament grade trip lips to ensure a fair dice roll each and every time. Each set also comes with a large 1" doubling cube and 5/8" high gloss black and white dice.

These are all characteristics normally found only in much pricier backgammon sets. That is, until now. Silverman & Co. premium backgammon sets are by far, the best combination of high quality and unbeatable value that you will find anywhere. Available exclusively from GammonVillage, we unreservedly give these backgammon boards our highest recommendation.

Available in 3 sizes: 13" (travel), 16" (medium) and 19" (large).
