It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a The Chess Store Australia Backgammon, Chess and Checkers set combination.

The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any 3-in-1- Travel Set combination in its price range. Nothing even comes close! You'll love this travel set!

Backgammon Board Setup

The backgammon board is divided into 24 adjacent spaces or points consisting of long triangles of alternating colours, connected along one side.
The points are numbered from 1 to 24; checkers move from higher to lower points.
This means that point no. 24 for one player is point no.1 for another.
Each player begins with two checkers on point no.24, five each on points 13 and 6 and three on point no.8.
The points are named collectively as follows:
  1. Points 1 through 6: your home board.
  2. Points 7 through 12: your outer board.
  3. Points 13 through 18: your opponent's outer board.
  4. Points 19 through 24: your opponent's home board.
  5. Point no. 7 is called the bar point.
  6. Point no. 13 is called the mid-point.

Players move in opposing directions. For example, the player with the black checkers moves anti-clockwise, while the player with the white checkers moves clockwise.

    Arrived in timely manner as stated, looks great apart from a few of the edges on the velvet could have been a bit neater, other than that really really pleased with it and looking forward to using it on our trip to USA.
