We make our unique Bookgammon™ sets because backgammon is one of the oldest games of this current civilization, plus backgammon was outlawed in the 16th Century due to a gambling prohibition, during which time they took to concealing the game in books. Those are 2 excellent reasons as far as we’re concerned.
In fact, Unique Backgammon Sets seems like an understatement. Our Bookgammon™ sets are one of a kind, handcrafted playable works of art celebrating both the history of backgammon and that of repurposing books. I kid you not. Through research on our beautiful book safes, it was discovered that during a 16th Century prohibition on games involving dice or cards, hardcore gamblers took to hollowing out books to conceal their backgammon addictions. There are no known examples of these, but we believe we’ve literally upped the game with the following features:
- Magnetized boards for maximum mobility (coupled with the following)
- The checkers are washers for maximum replaceability (they often go AWOL)
- Considering the above, they’re perfect for travel…conveniently play backgammon or stow your passport, etc. (room safes are targeted more frequently than books)
