Piano Lacquer Backgammon Game Set (13 Inches) with Wood Inlay Board
Brand: Yellow Mountain Imports
A set that combines convenience with beautiful craftsmanship, it's a sturdy and stunning (yet amazingly portable) wooden Backgammon set. With two sets of 15 Backgammon pieces (wood), 4 dice, a doubling cube, and 2 wooden dice clips, the game is ready to play when you are! There's something really beautiful about the high level of detail in the craftsmanship of the Backgammon wood inlay (both on the exterior and the playing surface). Starting with the foundation of high quality Backgammon board wood, its stunning design (and added luster from a piano lacquer finish) makes for an unforgettable set. It can be really easy to lose a set of dice or a couple of glass pieces, but rest assured that hidden inset magnets keep every delicate piece of the set securely closed for your peace of mind! Plus, piano lacquer exterior adds a supreme shine that impresses even when serving as storage. We stand by the high-quality craftsmanship of every aspect of this set, from the Backgammon pieces and dice down to the board, so if unsatisfied, please contact us for a refund or exchange.
- Beautiful Inside And Out: The level of detail on the Backgammon wood inlay (on both the playing surface and exterior surface) speaks to its superior craftsmanship.
- Folding Board For Travel: Even though the Backgammon board wood is dense, the set conveniently folds in half with all accessories inside, for a truly easy to carry set, with dimensions when closed measuring 13 x 8.25 x 2 in (33 x 21 x 5 cm).
- Piano Lacquer Finish Secures With Shine: Hidden inset magnets keep your wood Backgammon set firmly closed while the added luster of piano lacquer makes it a lovely work of art you might just want to display in between games as a decoration.
- Sturdy Wooden Playing Pieces: Two sets of 15 pieces (aka checkers) make for a classic look you can count on; dimensions measure 1 x 0.25 in (2.5 x 0.6 cm). Also included are 4 dice, a doubling cube, and 2 wooden dice cups.
Almost what I expected.
I bought this as a special gift for my sister. It is built precisely - the inlay is lovely. The magnets are strong and effective keeping the board closed. It is lovely EXCEPT: the "added luster from a piano lacquer finish" seems to be non-existent." There is no luster or shine. The best description I can come up with is the wood on the outside looks dusty. This was a tremendous let down as the set would be so much more attractive if the set had the deep luster that was promised. I cannot speak to the pieces themselves but they are very nice wooden playing pieces (well, not the dice). Overall it is an attractive set but lacking in one of the main selling points.
