Components for the Game
by Sonné for Backgammon Elegance

Our dice cups, checkers, and doubling cube are unique and have been designed with the backgammon player's needs in mind. Each item is described in detail below.

The Dice Cup

Dice cups need to tumble the dice and be easy to hold while making just the correct muted sound. Our multi-trip design trips the dice several times as they are ejected from the cup. Cushioned inner and outer bottoms and walls of the cup relieve noise fatigue. Rarely, if ever, will you get a hung die which requires a re-roll.


The Playing Pieces

The backgammon checkers must bring together form and function. Dimensionally, all of our checkers are virtually identical. They are of the ideal weight. Radiused edges create a superb feel and give ease of movement.

Standard Checkers

The Sonné Standard White and Black Checkers compliment the Dice Cups beautifully. Made of color stable solid acrylic and   polished to a mirror finish. The white checkers feature a metallic gold inner ring and the black checkers have a metallic silver inner ring.

A wide range of colors is available for the inner ring for an additional cost of $20 US per set ($40 US for Silver Sparkle or Gold Sparkle). Click here for custom color choices.

In addition, you may customize your checkers with up to 3 initials which will be engraved in the center and color matched to the inner ring (additional $40 US for up to 3 letters).

Considereded "tournament" size the Standare Checkers fit most backgamoon boards.  15 checkers stacked is approximately 7.1" in thickness for bearing off tray.

Size: Approximately 1 3/4" diameter by 1/2" thick (.473") (Approximately 45 mm diameter by 12 mm thick)

The Chromed Checkers

One of the unique features of the Sonné Chromed checkers is the inset color, which, along with the contrasting rim prevents a man from being temporarily missed during a move. Our checkers are never overlooked!

The checkers' Leather insets are available in a multitude of colors-- choose insets in Palomino, Natural, White, Saddle, Light Brown, Dark Brown, Green, Aqua Blue, Gold, Purple, Pink, Red or Black.

The Deliberate Doubler™

The Deliberate Doubler™ by Sonné is unique in that it has a series of arrows that point to the next important double. No fumbling for the next number, just follow the arrow. Each successive number comes up facing the correct direction for the opponent. Every time.

Deeply engraved numbers on a frosted transparent acrylic cube. Gold numbers, silver accents. Available in 3 sizes.
