Magnetic Backgammon Model - Le Tropézien

Being a player and a traveller I imagined then invented a game which is not cumbersome – not fragile and above all which allows you to play in all circumstances… including on an inclined or unstable surface.

Made for travel...

My patented device allows fabric or leather materials to become receptors for magnets while retaining their flexibility.

The size of the game part is generous enough to make real games.

The edge of the pocket incorporates a metal ruler allowing to place the pawns waiting for recovery.

It is possible to obtain in addition a track (tray) to roll the dice.


Craftsman from France

I do all the manufacturing in my workshop in Carqueiranne (Var)

From the cutting of the fabrics - the integral shaping - the silkscreen printing - the milling of the pins for the installation of the magnets...etc

3 hours of work are necessary for a realization.

Each order is subject to manufacture.

The game is made within 3 days. Then shipping.
