It would be more convenient if it has a handle for carrying along. It is big, and a handle will really be useful. I like an extra tile for each color in case you lose a piece, but this set does not include any. The inner suede looks great and feels nice to touch, but that can be a problem after months of playing as the suede material loves to accumulate dirt and grime. Construction does not look very impressive to me, the center part where it hinges is also lined with black leatherette that may not stand long with repeated closing and opening. Another gripe is the lack of a decent beginner's manual. What it has is almost useless as the quality of the print is very inferior and the illustration is hardly readable. This is great for a casual player, but a seasoned backgammon player might look somewhere else.

This game was a pleasure to play and my daughter especially enjoys learning new strategies to beat me at this game. Although the game box indicates that this game is for ages fourteen and up, my eight year old has no trouble at all playing this game. In fact, I think it's preferable to challenge young minds to learn problem solving strategies rather than wait until they are older.
I would recommend this game if you plan to use it often and are looking for a board and pieces that will stand the test of time. If I was in the market for a new chess and checkers set, Main Street Games would probably be my first choice after having played their backgammon game.
If you check the comments section I'll include a couple of places to find tutorials on how to play backgammon. The included instructions were quite good, but the orange print was not something I would expect to come with a game of this quality.
All in all, the workmanship in stitching is excellent but the glue is lacking in the construction of the game I received. I enjoy playing the game, like the look of it, appreciate that it's far superior to the heavy pleather set I had many years ago, but I'm not excited about the retail cost.

The set is pretty but the case latch broke the very first time I opened it! Also it doesn't have a handle.Published 17 days ago by Sharon Svabek
I am so impressed. I didn't expect it to be quite so nice and sturdy for the price. My only disappointment was the dice are small.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
I would give this 5 stars if the dice weren't so bad! The board looks and feels great as does the "chips" but you'll need to get other dice.Published 4 months ago by John Flaskamper
