FTH Backgammon

sick sense of humor and when I die I expect to find Him laughing..."

FTH Backgammon

I can highly recommend FTH and Fazil Terlemez for your next backgammon investment

Based in Germany, FTH has been making boards since 1997

Fazil holds a quick and serviceminded communication and smoothly adjusted my order after my wishes

The surface is felt with inlaid pips, my checkers are 50mm XL Size and I finally decided for the oval XL cups above the round ones, also in the picture on the left

One important feature I wanted to adapt was the corner pockets for the cube, so that it is not blocking bearing of checkers

The finish is perfect and the construction sturdy

After 1 year of useage I have still not noticed a single imperfection


The lyrics from Depeche Mode's Blasphemous Rumours seem fitting for backgammon, how often have we not lost a sure victory to the sarcastic humor of the gods of dice..

Colors of choice

The white felt board is easy on the eyes and the red and black very classic colors for the pips, nothing extreme

The white leather on the inner side gives a nice contrast to the black case. I added to the design with large black and white dice as well as a set of chouette cubes in the same color scheme
