Each backgammon set will include thirty checkers in two different colours, fifteen checkers of the same colour for each player. Checkers are also known as counters, stones or men. The checkers should be sized according to the width of the base of each point on the board. At Deluxe Backgammon we prefer natural materials so checkers recommended below are crafted from wood or stone. As the checkers are simply used as markers during play we like to select our pieces to complement the colours and textures of the backgammon board.
See our Deluxe Backgammon recommendation for Replacement hardwood checkers from GammonVillage.
