Luxury board games
Alexandra Llewellyn Backgammon Board – Pheasant
This dark-walnut backgammon board features photographic feathers with a hand-lacquered surface, and compartments lined in black leather. The playing pieces are weighted then veneered in dark walnut and a natural laurel burr and then lacquered; the doubling die is laurel; and the dice cups are dark walnut and lined in black leather with inside lips to ensure fair and random rolls of the precision laser-cut dice.
Gosling Games Table
The Gosling games tables range from traditional four-player card tables with green baize top, to low tables with customised ergonomic seating designed for two-player games such as chess and backgammon. The bespoke commissions service allows you to individualise your table, incorporating games from Monopoly to Mahjong.
Linley Bespoke Scrabble Set
Scrabble set in navy and cream leather with zebrano surround. The scrabble pieces and holders are stored in a compartment beneath the main board, which rotates on a concealed turning mechanism. Leather colours can be customised, with 11 offerings to choose from.
Geoffrey Parker Children’s Game Cube
This award-winning design incorporates 23 games into a single cube. Hand inlaid throughout, the six gaming surfaces include classics such as chess and snakes and ladders, while the backgammon face opens to reveal 17 more games stored within, each housed in a felt drawstring bag. Finished in Dauphin calf leathers in any of a dozen colours and trimmed with stainless steel, this luxury cube is a favourite of yacht owners for its compact space and style. Bespoke commissions are also possible.
