The oldest known board game, backgammon was invented 5,000 years ago, and evidence of its popularity can be found in cultures around the globe. As long as one player has a fair pair of dice, a board and pips could be devised with as little as a piece of paper and a handful of coins. Designer Alexandra Llewellyn takes a decidedly more luxurious approach. Handcrafted by a team of artisans, Llewellyn’s exquisite backgammon boards are made with exotic woods, metals, and semi-precious stones. This particular model features a bevy of feathers in place of half of the traditional triangular points. Alexandra Llewellyn’s series of backgammon boards is available exclusively at ALTAI in the United States.
