Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The set was fine, and my issues relate almost entirely to the stones themselves, and the storage space for the stones. I ordered the large (18") size. I had a nice set that was a bit smaller until 6-ish years ago when I gave it to a friend, and then immediately regretted it. I remember there being little to no wiggle room between the pieces if you put six stones across in a given section, but there's a fair amount of wiggle room on this board. The stones measure 1.25 across and the width of a section is 8.75 inches, which means that you actually have room for seven stones across.
While the storage space for the stones isn't overly "big", and clearly the stones are the size that the designer intended them to be, they don't fit in the stone-storage space snugly, and fall out easily if you opened the board the wrong way... I remember in my old board the space for the stones had a bit of cushion, and they would really fit in their snugly.
The workmanship on this backgammon set was slightly off (for example, the bottom of the dice cups in the set I received were kind of glued together at an angle instead of being flat), however, this set was far and above the quality of others sold on this site. It is not exactly as "perfect" as the set I have from the 80's, but for the price it was surprisingly nice. I gave it to my 12 year old granddaughter for Christmas who said to me "you got me a really nice set like the one you have." That says it all!!
This backgammon set is nice looking and pleasant to handle. It has all the pieces, dice, cups, etc, and they even send spares in case you lose a die or a checker. The interior is soft and the points are sewn down and pretty much flush with the board. It closes up securely and is easy to open. I got the 18", which offers plenty of room and portability, because I had gotten a super nice one from Ukraine that I didn't want anyone else to touch. But I wanted a board that I could actually play with someone on. Had a little email chat with a manager at customer service about the way Amazon is shipping their game boards and she was friendly enough. All in all I am glad I purchased this board and would recommend it.
