The Advantage of Premium Quality Board Games
Board games never lose their allure, as they have entertained generations of families over the centuries. The oldest known board game is the Royal Game of Ur, which originated over 4,600 years ago in the ancient empire of Mesopotamia. Likewise, chess, which originated in India before spreading across the world, has been entertaining analytical minds for over 1500 years. Playing board games is as much in our heritage as many of the ancient monuments we see around the world.
Every family can benefit from several high-quality board games in their home. Board games can teach children fine motor skills, and later develop the powers of reasoning and strategy. Playing board games as a family can strengthen familial bonds and relieve boredom on days and evenings spent at home. Lastly, but maybe most importantly, board games can teach us to play by the rules and be both a good winner and loser. But why should you invest in a high caliber board game, instead of buying a cheaper set?
Enhanced playing experience
The quality of the set will dictate the experience you have playing the game. A board game made of quality materials will tantalize the senses as well as the mind. The tactile pleasure of playing chess with our luxury bronze Paris edition of the game will leave a lasting memory. Each chess piece is recreated in the form of one of Paris’ iconic buildings and cast in high-grade bronze. There’s a pleasing weight to each piece, and this is a set which will last for generations.
If travel isn’t of interest, then revisit history with themed chess sets depicting moments of the past. Specially conceived to enhance your playing experience, and handcrafted by Greek artisans, we recommend the Greek Mythology Chess set, which takes inspiration from the story of how the city of Athens got its name. Or enjoy exploring the Byzantine Empire with a same-named chess set in which chess figures are inspired by the royal family of the Macedonians. And surely, mythology fans will be enamored of the Labors of Hercules chess set. For those who just want a good game of chess, we also have the classic Staunton chess set, crafted in brass with gold finish, each chess piece is carefully weighted and hand-finished to ensure quality, comfort, and ease of play.
A heritage item
Played by the Mesopotamians and Persians and still providing a legacy today, backgammon is the quintessential board game. So beloved within Middle Eastern nations, its popularity has spread around the world. Available to browse in our online store, there is a myriad of designs from classic right up to contemporary. These backgammon sets in various designs are made from plastic-coated and laminated wood with marbleized checkers. One of our favorite designs is the Moroccan Mosaic Art set, which is a beautiful take on this classic game. Or browse sets from the Premium collection, sharing sets carefully crafted from rare hardwood, such as the Dark Red Cork Set or the Fossil Forest Set both of which are accompanied by mother of pearl checkers, 2 dice cups, and a doubling cube.
We absolutely love the Travel Size Classic Car set, for the hours of enjoyment it will offer to players young and old, to relieve the tedium of long journeys. Its classic design means that it will never go out of fashion. Having a luxury board game in your house means that future generations of your bloodline will be able to play with the set, creating an inheritance which can be passed down.
Better for the environment
Buying a quality board game is far better for the environment.
