Deluxe Backgammon

Welcome to Deluxe Backgammon. We appreciate luxury Backgammon sets made from sustainable natural materials.

Backgammon is one of the world’s oldest board games, with a history dating back at least 5000 years. It is a two-player game where each player has fifteen checkers, which move across twenty-four points on the board. The movement of the checkers occurs according to the roll of two dice. The aim of the game is to be the first to move all fifteen checkers off the board. Strategy and tactics are important, but results can be dictated by luck.

Playing Guides.

As well as appreciating luxury Backgammon sets, we also enjoy playing the game. As students of Backgammon we are always trying to improve our level of play. 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 software, books and venues. These resources will help improve your play and the enjoyment of your luxury Backgammon sets.

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 the price. As such, we consider quality Backgammon sets from all price ranges.

The Deluxe Backgammon team has examined and played on many Backgammon sets that simply don’t meet our 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.
