All black with gold lettering on the binding. This edition has a backgammon board embossed on the front cover; I have another that doesn’t for some reason. Paul Magriel was a professional backgammon and poker player, former junior chess champion and math professor.
Book Size: 7 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ x 1 1/2″
-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 abroad…conveniently play backgammon or stow your passport, etc. (room safes are targeted more frequently than books)
