We from Columbus have traveled around the world searching for traditional, fascinating games at their places of origin to bring them to your home now. One of our journeys took us to the Orient where we found Backgammon.

Backgammon is one of the oldest dice games known to man and it is absolutely unique. Its internationally-known name comes either from a Welsh word meaning 'small battle' or it has Anglo Saxon roots meaning 'game on the backside of the board'. But much older than the familiar name is the game's origin itself. (For further details, please take a look at History of Backgammon).

COLUMBUS offers Backgammon boards in two different designs:

Nardshir-Backgammon and Tabula-Backgammon.
