The Primal Board
Primal Nature of Humanity Confronts Backgammon
Sitting hunched over in the dark, Primal man clutches a stone in one hand and carefully, but swiftly swings it against another to create a spark.
He creates fire.
For a short and enjoyable moment, the darkness and cold is gone with life giving heat as the fire dances from his tinder wood.
The Primal Board focuses on the raw nature of an early savage man or woman. The handmade checkers encapsulate stone and fire in their appearance while the zebrano wood grain makes one think of the flowing motion of fire.
The inlays take earthy tones as one would expect of a primal fire pit.
Real leather covers the case, handle and accessories pointing to the respectful, but necessary hunt of the daily meal.
Note from the Backgammon Galaxy Team
Often we point to the stars and future for our inspiration. This time our love of history brought us back into early times of humanity.
The Primal Board was perfected from many colour samples, trial and errors until we found the right balance.
We decided to honour the exquisite zebrano wood by increasing the size of the board from our usual Galaxy dimensions. This makes it a fantastically decorative and modern centrepiece in the home while preserving a professional playing experience.
