Jaques of London is a family-owned company that was founded in 1795. In fact, Jaques helped popularise the game of chess by producing the first Staunton chess pieces in 1839. They have also been responsible for inventing many well-known games such as Ping Pong, Snakes and Ladders, Ludo, Happy Families and Snap. They produce a range of quality backgammon sets at very reasonable prices. As a result, a wooden Jacques backgammon set is the perfect introduction into the world of Deluxe Backgammon.
Because of the low price, the budget card and linen Jaques backgammon sets are a good source for spare wooden dice or checkers. The sets recommended by Deluxe Backgammon are fashioned from mahogany, oak and leather. The materials are top quality and so is the workmanship.
All Jaques products come with exquisite packaging. Because of the packaging, Jaques backgammon sets make superb gifts.
