£4,100.00 – £5,025.00An ever-growing Geoffrey Parker favourite; semi-perforated leather gives a contemporary super-car feel to our luxury backgammon sets.
Available in black and racing red hides, our Automotive hide is synonymous with supercar marques the like of McLaren and Lamborghini who have used this for their luxury interiors. In fact, we have been asked to make a few Backgammon to match a number of car interiors over the years.
However, despite its luxuriously soft feel, it is only suitable for cases and dice cups as the little holes in the leather form a vacuum when used as a playing field and slow play down considerably. So we twin this with our specially tanned for Backgammon leather; our Dauphin calf for the inside of the cases. This makes for a splendid marriage.
All the usual professional specifications are included in the build as on our other custom backgammons and these special editions are available in all sizes and in our signature contemporary leather & metal specification.

Our Leather and Acrylic backgammon set is just as luxurious as our other Geoffrey Parker full leather & leather and metal boards; the only difference is the acrylic stones and the doubling cube.
This set uses the classic acrylic checker which many backgammon players still love to use; our sets also feature the traditional acrylic doubling cube all set within our luxurious leather backgammon set.
Why Choose an Acrylic Checker?
The acrylic checkers offer a more cost-effective option to our luxury games without losing the beauty of a Geoffrey Parker board. It also depends on your personal preference as a player; many love to stick to the checkers they first learned with, while others love the feel of the addition of leather and weight. The choice is yours.
£2,750.00 – £4,000.00
Bringing the classic Gentleman’s club feel to our luxury backgammon boards; our Billiard Cloth Backgammon sets have all the features of our award-winning backgammons with a leather & cloth field and acrylic checkers.
Quintessentially English; utilising Yorkshire cloth used for military uniforms both past & present, as a substitute to leather, our Billiard Cloth backgammons create both a professional & beautiful board.
Why Choose Billiard Cloth?
Much like our acrylic checkers, familiarity and nostalgia will play a part in choosing this style of backgammon. However, it is undeniable that our cloth creates a slick & fast surface for a speedy game which can make this version of backgammon preferable over its all-leather counterpart. As always, the choice is yours.
£750.00 – £1,100.00
Our mastercraftsmen are more than happy to create custom backgammon checkers for your existing boards, tables or extra checkers for your very own Geoffrey Parker backgammon.
At Geoffrey Parker we build our boards based on the checker size, this is designed to ensure there is the perfect balance between board and checker during the game. If you’re unsure what checker size you require please don’t hesitate to get in touch. If your board isn’t from us that doesn’t matter, we’ll try and help you match the right checker to your specific board measurements.
Designing your custom checkers is a great place to start at Geoffrey Parker, whether you’re looking for your logo to be embossed on each one or just to match the perfect colour to your board we’re always here to help. Handmade to order our bespoke checkers come in full leather and leather and metal either in silver gilt, or gold gilt.
Please, select the size, style and colours of your custom checkers from the below menu.
Leather throughout, our Backgammon has magnetic wooden and inlaid leather stones/checkers which are built extra tall to make it easier to play. Miniature Staunton style boxwood chessmen are also magnetised and look handsome atop the inlaid leather chessboard set into the lid of this little case; which in turn is closed with a hidden magnet. Even the “bar” is magnetised so that taken stones/checkers are stable during play. Both chessmen and stones/checkers safely stow within the case while on the move.
All thirteen of our usual Dauphin Calf leather colours can be chosen for this miniature travel set; place a deposit and a member of our design team will be in touch to discuss colour combinations and the fine details of your design.
£445.00 – £669.00
Forget the unplayable roll-up backgammon sets on the market – no serious player will use these – Geoffrey Parker has created a hard-sided roll-up backgammon!
Utilising new technology our craftsmen & women print your backgammon colour design directly onto our leather, the playing field is then bound to two magnetic leather sides with 3 ‘loose’ sides that magnetise into place creating a rigid, hard sided backgammon. Once rolled up, the “board” and walls stow neatly within a drawstring bag which also houses acrylic stones/checkers, dice and doubling cube. Although we can make dice cups as an extra, we feel that the main point of the board is to keep it as light and easily stowable as possible within one’s luggage.
Once you choose the size of Roll-Up Backgammon that works best for you a member of our design team will be in contact to help design your perfect travel backgammon.
£170.00 – £510.00
Our team of highly skilled English craftsmen & women handmake our luxury leather doubling cubes to order in a choice of three sizes & thirteen colours. We offer two styles of doubling cubes which match our leather & metal & full leather backgammon sets.

These modern-looking doubling cubes can be found in our Leather & Metal Backgammon Sets.
Our full leather versions are slightly bigger in size than the metal and leather doubling cubes, wrapped completely in the finest Calf leather and again embossed by hand in either gold or silver our full leather doubling cubes can be one or two colours to suit your taste. To see these beautiful cubes in a backgammon set see our Full Leather Backgammons.

For extra protection when carrying your precious Geoffrey Parker backgammon board! It goes without saying that once you receive your Geoffrey Parker Backgammon you will want to try and maintain the condition of your board. When travelling or taking your set to The World Championships, we would advise the additional purchase of one of our quilted protective bags.
Custom Backgammon Bag
In addition to the felt drawstring dust bag, we provide with our boards free of charge. Our team can custom make, to order, a special double quilted carrying bag for our boards; which gives protection from scuffing etc. when travelling with your backgammon. It is not suitable though for putting in an aircraft hold or similar without outer boxing and further protection.
