Doubling cube subject to substitution

Newest to our Signature Line, Athena’s Backgammon is a celebration of Greek culture, history, and design.

Backgammon, or tavli (τάβλι) as it’s called, has been a staple in cafes and homes throughout Greece for many years. Even in the 5th century, the emperor Xeno famously lost a game to an unlucky dice roll.

This backgammon set bleeds blue ⎼ from its Classic Blue exterior onto the canvas playing fields, all the way to the pearl dice and checkers. The playing fields feature a modern take on the ancient Greek columns, along with the Owl of Athena in the corners to guide you to victory.

    Everyone fell in love with this board last night. Thank you for the most perfect gift for our best friends – who reunited their wedding party in Oia, Greece to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. This board was the perfect gift and will be a memory in the years to come. It’s heading to Australia now! Thank you to the team’s attention to detail.
