Pros and Cons
Pros5

Backgammon is a fun game which is also surprisingly difficult to master. Finished surfaces throughout are smooth to the touch. All corners line up nicely. The playing area is smooth and nicely designed.

Board closes nicely on brass hinges. Magnets help keep the case closed. Some are slightly taller, also the round/circle shapes are not perfect, but they work as intended.

Wooden checkers and dice are extremely high quality. Wood grain gives just enough texture to make them easy to grip and pick up.

The game is gorgeous in terms of build quality. It has great craftsmanship. It's a very nice case and the workmanship is beautiful. If you want something that feels a little more hand-crafted and a little less factory feel, then great!

Have to say i was pleasantly surprised at how nice this game set looks. This set is really beautiful - the kind that you always see open on a table in high-end decorating photos. This woodronic backgammon set is top notch.

Two card packs have to be stored in a ziplock as well. Communicating with the little cubes is both surprisingly difficult and easy.

Concept is a mash-up of pictionary, charades, and pictionary. Think table top-version of charades.

Cons2

The pictures are too limited to make this anything other than a fancy guessing game. Here are some samples of things that we thought might be more fun than this game:1) any other game, including playing frogger. Dumbest game ever.

What is the incentive for a player to play? If they do a great job, the game keeps moving but that effort is not rewarded in any way. A quick sample of the top ten suspiciously positive reviews of this game reveal that everyone abandons the scoring sy...  Read More
