Make your move even while you're literally moving with this backgammon set from the Fundex line of elegantly diminutive travel games. The 6-by-6-inch leatherette case unzips and becomes an open book, revealing a richly colored hardwood pegboard and a pouch containing the game pieces: 30 silver- and gold-hued pegs. A sheet of rules is included, as is a trio of dice for moving and doubling. Even if you travel economy class, your play can look first class with the Portfolio Games Backgammon set. --Tony Mason
