I buy backgammon sets for two reasons: one because I love the game (and wish my husband would play with me – Justin!); and two because new backgammon sets cost the earth! And I try to buy sets that are as close to new as possible, so it’s worthwhile – you’re not only getting a reasonably priced set, but one that’s not far off the version you’d buy new. This set has all of its pieces, including dice and instructions pamphlet, the only real issue is some print that’s transferred onto the board – for some reason someone photocopied the rules, and left the copy in the case, presumably for a very long time – long enough for the ink to make it’s way onto the board. It’s quite faint though, and only visible on a few of the white triangles, so not really the end of the world. The metal clasps are also slightly worn, and there’s a bit of glue on the green felt from when the board was put together, but greenly speaking I’d say that the set is good, clean condition.
