I have always enjoyed playing board games. They provide a fun way for people to interact with each other. Not long after I met hubby, he taught me how to play backgammon. Considered a classic educational game, backgammon makes you think while still being fun to play. GrowUpSmartis a small company that focuses on educational toys and games. Their Smart Tactics Backgammon Set is a nice looking, quality product. Perfect for beginner players as well as those with experience, this set is the perfect holiday gift. It comes in a case that keeps all of the pieces together, making it ideal for use at home, in a workplace breakroom, and even while traveling. Here’s a full description of the products.


Teach your children the joy of playing backgammon, a simple yet genius game of tactics and chance that has been played and beloved around the world for thousands of years!

Smart Tactics Backgammon is an all-inclusive backgammon set that truly contains everything a backgammon player could ever need, from a large foldable board with soft felt interior to dice cups and a doubling cube. This high quality backgammon bundle would not only satisfy even masters of the game, but is also ideal as an introductory set to beginners.

The backgammon board is made from wood and coated with a well-stitched supple PU leather exterior and a green, red and white soft felt interior.

It also has convenient piece storage trays and folds into a handy suitcase-shaped travel pack with press buttons and a handle. Unlike many other backgammon games, this game has been tested for compliance with US toy safety standards so you know it’s safe to use for children and adults alike.

I don’t know if I have ever actually played. We had the game as a kid and I pretty much just made up my own rules.

My sister and I used to play when we were kids. I think it’s time I show my kids how to play, would make a great Christmas gift.
