The Briefcase Backgammon Set

Apparently designed to trick others into thinking that it's an ordinary case, a briefcase backgammon set is an interesting item to own. It looks like an ordinary attaché case on the outside with latches or locks and a handle. But when it's opened up it reveals a backgammon board with counters, a pair of dice, doubling cube and dice cups neatly tucked inside.

A standard board that is used in tournaments is 21" in size. So you will find a briefcase backgammon set that has a 21" by 26" dimension when opened. But smaller sized backgammon sets are more popular because they are easier to store and carry around. There are a variety of sizes and colors to choose from in an attaché case set as it is with other types of backgammon boards.

They come in compact, jumbo and other customized dimensions that you can think of. And as case sizes differ, the size of the accessories inside change as well. So, a 24" by 15" open case can have 1.75"-sized counters as compared to the standard 1.5"-sized ones.

What's more, most of these briefcase backgammon sets come with felt, suede, or other smooth playing surfaces that's preferred by more serious gamers. It's not really pleasant to play with any other surface where the noise from throwing dice and advancing checkers are distracting. The materials used in the exterior of these attaché cases also come in leather that caters to well-off game enthusiasts. But non-leather exteriors are available as well.

Now, the price of a briefcase backgammon set can be as low as US$40.00 to as high as US$500.00 or even higher depending on its size and quality of its materials. And since there are a number of board game suppliers online nowadays, you'll only need to compare their products to see what's best for you. Also, there are even backgammon/chess combination attaché cases available too so you can get two kinds of game boards in a single case.

The briefcase backgammon set is a stylish, easy to carry, and easy to store item to possess. It's not as bulky as a backgammon table or as common as a backgammon box. It comes complete with all the necessary accessories inside. There's a lot of sizes, colors and materials choose from when you looking to own one. You can get yourself a briefcase backgammon set without breaking the bank or a luxurious attaché case set to show off to your friends.
