For the High Rollers

Winning at backgammon requires a mixture of good fortune and skill. Perhaps it’s the combination of destiny and dexterity that makes the game so compelling. We have found one of the best backgammon boards, at London leathergoods company Pickett.

The Large Backgammon set is handmade in Pickett’s London workshops. Available in a variety of shades of leather, it measures 46cm x 33cm x 10cm (closed) and comes with almost everything you need for an impromptu game. All you need to add is a playing partner… and some luck with the dice.

With its countless small shops and boutiques, London is an ideal venue for Christmas shopping: but where can you find the really special and unusual gifts? Classic Driver is out and about in the Capital, and will be suggesting a new gift idea every day.
