As seen in the UBC 2020 final
Did you see a beautiful organic styled backgammon board on the UBC 2020 final between Grand Masters Ueda and Mochy? You’re not mistaken! This is the same backgammon board, and it’s now available to all backgammon fans!
1 board sold = 10 trees planted
The Earth Board is a tribute to our home planet. That’s why we have teamed up with TeamTrees, which means that 10 trees will be planted for every board we sell. This ensures that the production and shipping of the board is done in a sustainable way.
To do this we will donate to the Non-profit organisation TeamTrees, which distributes the funds to tree-planting projects all around the world.
The game of backgammon is perfect, but the boards are not. Every single tournament-sized backgammon board out there, is an oversized and bulky suitcase that’s very difficult to carry around.
But not anymore. We have reinvented the board.
The Earth Board is perfect for any situation. It’s tournament-sized but in a space efficient and streamlined package. Going to the cafe, local events or travelling the world is now easier than ever, thanks to its main feature: the separate tray box.
The separate tray box is a standalone unit that fits inside the board during transportation. When you’re ready to play, just take it out and place it on either side of the board. Or you can leave the tray at home and instead place everything in the small zipper carrying case that comes with the board to be even more lightweight.
This freedom allows you to focus 100% on your game.
If you could choose one backgammon board for a lifetime - The Earth Board is the one!
Same dimensions as our online board
Modelled from the board you know and love from our website, the “Earth Board” will surely impress your friends and opponents, whether you play at home or bring it with you to tournaments.
Our skilled craftsmen have selected pristine materials for the board. The case and tray box is cut from a wonderful piece of beech wood, which goes perfectly with the green hues of the playing surface as well as the golden touches of the hinges and logo plate on the outside of the case.
The hefty yet elegant 44.2 mm marbled acrylic checkers presents a refined look. Sliding them smoothly across the felt offers the senses a delightful feeling.
Travel made easy
One of the primary design specifications of the Earth Board was to solve the biggest problem of luxury backgammon boards: the ability to travel with them. Usually the luxury boards are too big and clunky and with a handle and locks.
We solved this problem with the innovative design idea by combining the two bear-off trays into one unique tray box that fits perfectly inside the board. Furthermore, the optimal playing dimensions of the interior also contribute to minimising exterior length of the board.
Improved lightweight version
Another upgrade since our Neptune board is the addition of a new travel friendly bag for all the board components. You’ll now have the option of the elegant standard dice tray that you can carry inside the board as well as this lightweight bag. Zipping effortlessly around the world for backgammon tournaments is now one notch easier.
Easy to clean removable playing surface
We are introducing a novel feature to our already innovative travel design. The playing surfaces are now removable such that you may easily clean or replace the surface. Furthermore, the materials used for the surface provides a really solid feeling and bounce to the dice.
Separate tray box = Flexibility
The unique separate tray box gives you multiple options for setting up the board. Want to cut down size and weight even further? No problem! Simply pack the checkers, dice, dice cups and cube into the custom designed zipper bag inside the board and leave the tray box at home. Now you have the barebones setup which is both lightweight and takes up minimal space on the table!
The separate tray box will also help you when setting up your board at crowded venues. You can place the dice tray exactly where you want and leave you room to breathe.
Elevate the clock or scoreboard
Another handy feature is the ability to use one half of the tray box as a completely flat platform to elevate the game clock, dice tower or scoreboard.
Unlike many other boards we have decided to minimize the distance between the opposite facing 5-stacks. This means that you don't have to reach so far to move your checkers on your opponent's side of the board.
And believe it or not, this compact approach also improves your general overview of the position of the checkers, as your eye travels less. These are the same dimensions as the online Galaxy board, and we believe these are the optimal dimensions for a backgammon board.
