Backgammon, Royalty, and Empires have a long and distinguished history. From ancient Mesopotamia to Medieval Europe, backgammon has fascinated Kings and nobles for centuries. In honor of the legendary King Arthur, we proudly present Excalibur, the pinnacle of backgammon sets, available exclusively from GammonVillage.
Excalibur backgammon sets are meticulously hand crafted in the United Kingdom, using only the most exceptional materials and are assembled with a strict adherence to detail and design symmetry.
Beginning with the case exterior, our design team has chosen Crest leather, sourced from Chiampo, Italy and known for its superior quality and exceptionally soft hand feel. Handling this backgammon set is an experience in sublime pleasure.
For the playing surface, we use ultra premium French dauphin leather. With its dimpled texture, this ensures perfect checker speed and glide as you move your men across the board.
Each Excalibur backgammon board comes equipped with an extraordinary set of backgammon checkers. The combination of leather and metal results in a playing piece that is thrilling to behold. Weighing in at 46 grams each, you’ll appreciate the heft when holding them, and you’ll marvel at how effortlessly they move across the field.
The 1-3/4” doubling cube is a similar masterpiece, also fabricated with leather and metal, and perfectly color matched to each backgammon set. Additionally, you’ll appreciate the tournament grade dice cups, each with a trip lip to ensure fair play. The cups are conveniently stored in the side pocket when game is closed. A set of precision dice is also included in each set.
The case is finished off with a hand stitched leather handle, gilt plated combination locks, and a touch of magic from King Arthur’s legendary sword. Excalibur backgammon sets are truly fit for a King!
