We are pleased to announce the highly anticipated European arrival of the Generation III series of backgammon sets from the Wycliffe Brothers. As with their predecessors, these stunning backgammon sets offer all the features found in high-end professional models at an affordable price.
This full-size backgammon set is built around an ultra smooth playing surface, known as V-Fiber™. Similar in texture to felt or microfiber, this proprietary material was developed exclusively by The Wycliffe Brothers, satisfying the two most important criteria for a backgammon playing surface: 1) the checkers glide effortlessly on a luxurious and perfectly smooth field, and 2) the playing surface offers the perfect amount of friction to ensure your checkers remain in place if the board is bumped or moved.
New to the Generation III series are the phenomenal marbleized checkers, so highly polished you'll find yourself transfixed by their beauty. Just shy of 1/2" thickness (11mm), these oversized checkers significantly reduce the instances of cocked dice, so you spend more time on game play rather than re-rolling your dice. If you're looking for heavy checkers, you've found them. Weighing in at a whopping 20 grams each, it's official - these are the new King of backgammon checkers!
Each backgammon set comes equipped with professional dice cups, ergonomically designed to fit your hand perfectly, and lined with the same V-Fiber™ to keep the noise of shaking to an absolute minimum. You'll also appreciate the tournament grade trip-lip, just to make sure the dice fall randomly and cannot be manipulated.
Also new to Generation III is the absolutely decadent oversized doubling cube, measuring 1-3/4" (42mm). When it's time to double, you can now do so with authority! Each case also features reinforced luggage-style handle and nickel plated locks.
