The Kingdom of Boardom
Not to be confused with the Kingdom of boredom, whereby people sit around all day morose and lethargic contemplating their navel or other unlikely body influences. No, this "Boardom" is the pinnacle of the bourgeoisie, the elite domicile for the life styles of the rich and famous and their toys, or in this case boards.
Design and fashion has nearly always been contemporary when speaking about backgammon boards.
Tradition demands that the board is usually made of a polished wood with the dice and pieces equally highly polished and hand carved. Of course the cheaper versions are usually of plastic with boards of paper or a cardboard equivalent. But we won't worry about those too much!
Elegance and equity now go hand in hand in this latest range of backgammon boards, seen as the perfect accessory for high society and perfectly acceptable as a conversation piece, or as a companion on journeys of excruciating boredom.
Breaking away from the normal style of boards comes the offering from Maharishi's whose aim is to liberate the game from it's household image and bring it into the designer focus showroom of the avant garde.
In losing its military association the board is decorated in a house bonsai forest cameo style that still smacks of camouflage, but in a much more subtle way.
Resplendent in a bright Orange and Olive coloured pattern on the outer board representing the influence of nature in the design, and featuring the roles of Tigers versus Dragons, this beautiful piece of hand tooled leather craftsmanship is made to order and is accompanied by a set of exquisite dice, playing pieces and dice rollers with the whole ensemble encased in a specially built lightweight designer briefcase for ease of carrying, complete with combination locks, all for a measly £1,200.
A small price to pay for such a stylish must have accessory and an ideal gift for a Christmas stocking filler.
