From the workshop of Manopoulos in Athens Greece comes a collection of beautiful, hand crafted backgammon sets in a variety of unique designs and wood combinations. This backgammon set features a beautiful walnut exterior that opens to an oak playing surface with blue and walnut points. The light oak playing surface creates a stunning contrast against the surrounding darker walnut and the blue and walnut points create a striking contrast against the oak - the look is sharp and elegant!
Chip racks on both sides of the board conveniently hold chips that are not in play. The blue and ivory multi-color chips are made from a high quality plastic that have a mother-of-pearl look. Included with this backgammon set are two sets of dice, a doubling cube, a burgundy velour draw-string accessory bag, two wood dice cups, instructions on how to play backgammon, and an attractive black carrying bag with the Manopoulos logo. Whether for yourself or a gift, this backgammon set is bound to please with its old world quality and craftsmanship.
