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.

Cons1

The playing surface looks to be a printed vinyl/pvc material. The checkers are wood, but that's all. It's embarrassing because i bought this as a gift and had it shipped directly to the recipient - thinking i was sending a nice classy gift.

Pros3

The magnetic board is not that strong to hold the pieces but still it holds them good. It's great for practicing chess. The ai is incredible. It will give you suggestions for moves.

A computer chess opponent is a necessity to have an opponent on a regular basis. You can change the style of the computer to normal, passive, very passive, and aggressive. It works just fine and the battery lasts long.

It's a little small for my fingers (but i purchased it for my nephew who is ten years old. Bought for 11 year old grandson.

Cons2

The lcd board is old and not clear at all. The only way i could read the screen is by shinning a flashlight directly on the screen. The command * are not really intuitive, so it is difficult to use.

The magnets are very weak and the pieces come loose with ease. You waste a lot of time trying to determine why the first move is incorrect. From above, pawns look like pawns, the other pieces all look about the same.
