Golden Anchor backgammon boards have brass combination locks .
All metal parts have the same color. Golden Anchor backgammon bords are hingeless. That means when the board is open, no metal part on the dividing bar is visible - the bar is flat. In closed position the bottom side has no visible metal part and the case stands upright without legs. All other metal fittings as corners, handle base are brass.
The Golden Anchor backgammon boards are 53x32 cm closed. The Golden Anchor checkers have 40mm diameter and are 9 to 11 mm tall depending on the model. The length of the Golden Anchor board provides ample space for rolling - 5 checkers on both sides and the dice cups inbetween. They are 30 mm deep - enough to stack three thick checkers inside. This is necessary to provide a big surface for rolling and a high enough wall to prevent dice from rolling out of the board.
As in the other Svilo boards, the Golden Anchor boards have the famous oval leather, bottom bumper, lipped Svilo cups. For no additional charge it is possible to change the oval cups with Lady leather, bottom bumper lipped dice cups.
There are 4 types of handles used in Svilo backgammon boards. The Soft handle, Hard swing handle, Hard fixed handle and Hard bending handle. Only the first two types are used in the Golden Anchor backgammon boards. The picture on the product page only shows the likely model of handle, but it is not a 100% guarantee. If you like to ensure the exact type of handle, you may ask by email, but you may or may not need to add 20 EURO for handle change depending on availability of materials and semifinished parts. If you make a custom order, then you can pick your preferred handle without surcharge. The dice in the pictures are not necessarily the dice you are buying. The dice in the specification column are the dice you pay for.
Personalization. Some parts may be interchanged free (dice cups, size or color of dice, but not standard dice to precision dice). You might also ask change or addition of dice cups, dice or doubling cube that involve a surcharge. This is personalisation
Customization. The change of other elements may require additional labor, materials. It involves risk and time. That is why in the very beginning of making of a custom order you are asked about a 10% surcharge over the normal prices at the Backgammon set gallery. In the process of fixing of your order we will reach the real price of the custom product that you order. Even if you do not reach an order or cancel your order before I send it, I will keep the 10% surcharge as a compensation, but I will return all the other money.
For instance you can have any of the playing fields mounted on a natural leather case. At this time I have the following colors: Gray, Coffee, Black, Green, Cream, Dark brown

Backgammon equipment. Ready made price list and customization procedure
One can personalize a backgammon set by changing checker color, dice cups color, dice cup model, dice color or size, doubling cube size or color. Personalizing the backgammon set usually cost nothing if it is technically possible (sizes, availability, etc.). You just need to ask before you buy.
Custom made backgammon boards
A backgammon board can be custom made to the requirements of a customer. He can choose size of his board (4 sizes available), material and color of the exterior, material and color combination of the playing surface, type of handle, type, size and color of dice cups, type, size and color of dice.
Size of doubling cube.
One can order custom imprints on the outside cover of the case, the playing field, the checker separation area or the dice cups.
At the Golden Anchor site you can order custom building of a backgammon board.
For a start, you will be asked about 10% surcharge to the normal price of the basic board you choose to customize. The prices are about 10% higher than the normal price for a ready made board .
If your personalization consists only in replacing or adding accessories - only the difference in price will be settled and the rest of the 10% surcharge returned or some more asked.
If you like to customize your board in a way that involves more labor, materials, time or risk, the final price will be agreed before we start work.
If making the custom backgammon board is thwarted in any way (anything like: we do not reach agreement, changes that you like are unacceptable, materials not available, risk in doing it is too big etc. etc.)- I will refund the full price minus 10%. That means, when you start talking you risk that 10%. I also risk my time, materials and other men's time and effort.
After a customized board is ready, I will send you a picture for approval. If you do not like the board, you can still cancel your order. I will then refund 90% and keep 10% of the agreed and paid total price as compensation.
If you receive a customized board and do not like it for any reason, you can return it within the first 7 days after receipt at your own cost. If the backgammon board and all accessories are as new I will make full refund of the money received minus 10% or make a replacement if you wish.
