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).

Choosing the best colour of checkers for your game.

Sometimes it is difficult to imagine how the colours of the checkers you like will actually match your board.

We suggest that your “right click” on the checker of your choice and
  • from the menu that appears choose “copy image”
  • then paste the image into a word or imaging document
  • adjust the size to the correct size of the checker of your choice
  • the resulting image can then be copied and pasted into the same document as many times as required
  • finally just print the document, and cut out the circular images, which can then be placed on your board.

IMPORTANT. As with all digital photos, the resulting printed colours will differ from the original pieces.
