If you are in the market for a backgammon set visit Ekavi. The boards are inlaid with a vatirty of different woods. Board sizes range from stanard to small for travel. All are beautiful and the staff very helpful.

The shop sells all kinds of sets, from cheap ones to top end ones. Discounts are available, especially if there are any flaws in the set. I found the service very friendly and I got good advice and a good discount.
