These travel chess/checkers and backgammon boards are just over a foot long and weigh less than half a pound. Play on a plane, a road trip, a picnic, camping, or even on one of those tiny tables at the park or a coffee shop.
The board’s playing surface is sophisticated and suede-backed with a soft leather that’s pleasing to the touch. A zipper storage pocket is built right in on the edge. This safely stores the stones, dice, and doubling cube for you backgammon players or the iconic tokens for the chess set. Speaking of which, flip the pieces over, and you’re ready for checkers.
Both when in play and when packed away, Sondergut’s boards look and feel deluxe, worthy of the classic games for which they’re made.
