    Looks Great, high quality materials.

    I was hoping to play this christmas day with my son when he opened it, unfortunately it came, shrink wrapped, looking wonderful but when opened all up, was missing the dice? The return policy says it needs to be in its original wrap to return, I am going to try at the store to explain that we had to open it, to find it was missing the dice? Hope they stand by it. I will change my stars to a 5 if they do.

    Good buy

    Despite the other poor review, I needed a backgammon fix. I went ahead and bought this. Personally, I think this set is well made. The board does feel a tad bit light for my tastes, but nothing was falling off or anything crazy/game-breaking. There was a slight error in packaging with my set as I received 3 white dice and only 1 brown die. Other than this, everything was as it should have been. Don't let the other reviews dissuade you, this is a great beginner set! I would recommend it.

    cheap garbage do not purchase

    This set is cheap garbage. It is worth approximately $10.00. My recommendation is to not purchase this set for the cost of $34.95. If you purchase this item at the Barnes and Noble store at least ask the store clerk to open the box to see the quality for yourself.
