Bob Stoller (of Alaska) who may be the world’s No. 1 collector of fine backgammon boards, received his 869 Custom Board today and he sent me a note and gave me permission to quote him below:
”This is a brief note to let you know that my backgammon ensemble from Erkan Dogrusoz has just arrived. Everything came through in good shape. The set is a very beautiful creation, and arguably the best value tournament-size set currently available for United States consumers. I will also be working up a new color combination for a set based on the colors of the Alaska flag ("Eight Stars Of Gold On A Field Of Blue", in the words of the official State of Alaska Flag Song),
I should add that the carry bag is a minor work of art in its own right.”
