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.
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.
Great gift for my 10-year-old grandson. The packaging is okay. We also photograph the board at the end of each day to make sure that no “cheaters’ move pieces or cash.
This is very similar to the classic one. The different game pieces are more imaginative than when i grew up. There are new fun pawns, the money is a different color, houses and hotels are sleeker.
The game is still easy to learn and can be addicting. The only downfall to this game is that it lasts a long time. Besides that, it is an excellent game that i recommend.
Box came damaged. Looks like it was taped or water damage. Photos show single folded version of the game. Board was torn.
