Deluxe Backgammon

Welcome to Deluxe Backgammon. We offer backgammon playing guides, rules, tips on strategy and tactics, plus recommendations for quality backgammon sets.

Backgammon is one of the world’s oldest board games, with a history dating back at least five thousand years. It is a two-player strategy game where each player has fifteen checkers, which move across twenty-four points on the board. The movement of the checkers happens according to the roll of a pair of dice. The objective of the game is to win by being the first to move all fifteen checkers off the board. Strategy and tactics are crucial during game play, but the end results can be determined by luck in the short term. However, in the long run, over a series of games, the more skillful player will almost always win.

Playing Guides.

We appreciate luxury backgammon sets, but we also really enjoy playing the game. As students of backgammon, we are always trying to improve our standard of play. As in most endeavours, practice makes perfect. The Deluxe Backgammon team has put together a series of playing guides that summarise the lessons we have learned through our study and practice. We also have some reviews of some additional backgammon resources, including rules, software, books and venues. These resources will help improve your play and the enjoyment of your luxury backgammon set.

Deluxe Backgammon sets and accessories.

Deluxe Backgammon is a recommendation site for luxury backgammon sets and accessories. Our preference is for backgammon sets made from sustainable natural materials. Luxury backgammon sets can cost many thousands of pounds. At Deluxe Backgammon we think quality and style is more important than just the price. As such, we consider quality backgammon sets from all price ranges from budget to luxury. A premium backgammon set is available in a wide range of price points. Remember, the best backgammon sets are dependent on quality, not always the price.


The Deluxe Backgammon team has inspected and played on many backgammon sets that simply don’t meet our high standards. As a result, they don’t appear on this website. We don’t rate our recommendations, rather we simply provide an honest and well-researched review. Deluxe Backgammon only ever recommends quality backgammon sets and accessories that we would use ourselves.
