We can't claim to be the world's foremost authority on backgammon. The modern game is derived from thousands and thousands of years of game history and has been studied in depth by some of the greatest minds and speediest computers ever conceived. Sure, we're decent backgammon players - you win some, you lose some - but we're trying to be realistic. But, whether you came to us curious about how to play or you're a seasoned vet in search of a new backgammon set, we're here to help further your love of the game. We've set out to stock the best selection of backgammon sets, backgammon tables, and backgammon accessories, and we're confident you'll find we've covered all the points.
Backgammon sets come in a huge variety of materials, types, color schemes, and prices ranges. Backgammon is played on the familiar two-part board, which lends itself beautifully to game design. Standard and travel backgammon sets often come in briefcase form, where the board itself folds up in to an easy-to-carry case for all the smaller pieces. Most sets come with all the accessories you'll need to play - dice, dice cups, backgammon checkers, and a fully appointed felt board with markings and bars. These sets are perfect if you like to take your game on the go, or if you prefer to store it in between sessions.
If tournament backgammon and the betting that comes with it is your cup of tea, look to invest a little more in a tournament backgammon set. You'll get beautiful material improvements like polished wood, leather, and intricate inlay designs. Tournament backgammon sets also come with all the pieces you need to rack up competitive victories - including the ever-important doubling cube.
For those with a more permanent space available for board games, backgammon tables are the perfect accent piece. Often found in the form of multi-game tables featuring chess, checkers, backgammon, and more, these tables can be simple or ornate, beautiful or functional. Either way, a backgammon table means there's always a way to entice visiting travelers into a quick game or two.

"My dad and I used to play backgammon on a beautiful backgammon set he bought in Greece when he was in the service. I still have that backgammon set, but I don't use it much because of its sentimental value. I had been looking for a nice-looking backgammon set some time and finally found one on your site. Thank you."
