Set of 15
Standard Backgammon Checkers - plastic, solid colours
ø 40x 10mm (1.57x 0.4 inches)
These checkers are made with a
slightly convex face and a slightly concave side. They are particularly suitable for inexpensive backgammon boards with sewn on points.
The ideal set-up is with the convex face touching the playing surface, this reduces the risk of checkers catching on the edge of the points and damaging them, and allowing a fluid movement.
Suitable for Backgammon, Draughts, International Draughts, Checkers, Polish draughts.

To determine the size of
checker that fits your set, measure the
inside of the backgammon board, so as to determine what the maximum size
of checker fits your set. Do not measure the checkers, as
the original checkers may be smaller than the actual size for a perfect
fit without gaps.
Measure along the inside edge - the edge where the base of the 6
triangles, measure from corner to corner, (i.e. from the edge of the
middle bar to edge of playing surface). It is best to measure in
millimetres, as this is more accurate, and divide this number by 6 to get
the actual maximum size. Thus if this measurement is 270mm, then
each checker can have a maximum diameter of 45mm (or 4.5cm).
