Board game sets suitable for high rollers

 

As many of our readers relax on their yachts and in villas in the South of France the Hamptons and Ibiza, many will be enjoying the odd board game of an evening. Here, we highlight five of the best sets currently available:

 

LINLEY Scrabble board

LINLEY Scrabble setThe most regal Scrabble board on the market is available from LINLEY for £3,600. Available in leather in 11 different colours, the board rotates on a concealed turning mechanism and comes with a zebrano surround and storage compartment. Wealthy wordsmiths like Jeffrey Archer, Julian Fellowes and J. K. Rowling will surely be flocking to the company’s Pimlico Road showroom.

 

Coach Scrabble board

Coach Scrabble£446 ($698) will buy you a cheaper but still luxurious board from New York based leather goods firm Coach™. It’d be just perfect to take onboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express to while away a few hours. Hercule Poirot would most certainly approve.

 

Asprey backgammon board

Asprey backgammon setBackgammon aficionados like Kylie Minogue, Kate Winslet and Ted Turner will love Asprey’s backgammon board in red English saddle leather. The set, priced at £3,700, comes complete with precision dice, counters, dice cups and a doubling cup.

 

Monopoly set by Geoffrey Parker

Monopoly set by Geoffrey ParkerA hand-bound Dauphin calfskin Monopoly set is available for £4,834 ($7,570) from Zontik Games. Embossed in silver or gold, here’s a gift that wouldn’t make a huge dent in the $1.1 billion fortunes of London property developers Nick and Christian Candy.

 

Military Monopoly set by Pemberton & Milner

Military Monopoly by Pemberton & MIlnerIf you’re in the league of Donald Trump – allegedly worth $10 billion – you could spend ten times more and commission Pemberton & Milner to make you a £100,000 Military Monopoly set. Created in conjunction with jewellers Garrard & Co., they can even highlight the Monopoly logo in white diamonds. Your conscience will be eased when you discover that 15% of the proceeds will be donated to The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and The RAF Benevolent Fund.
