Geoffrey Parker – luxury games handmade to order

Established in 1958, Geoffrey Parker has ascended to the pinnacle of luxury board games, games tables, and exquisite packaging. Renowned worldwide for our meticulously handcrafted leather backgammon boards, we have remained the discerning choice for professional players, enthusiasts, and luxury brands alike for over six decades.

The name Geoffrey Parker pays homage to our visionary founder, who, driven by a profound passion for leather and literature, embarked on a journey that began with crafting miniature leather-bound books in 1958. These exquisite creations found their way into the hands of exclusive boutiques and distinguished luxury brands, including the likes of P & O and Cunard. Notably, one of our esteemed clients was Richard Dunhill, descendant of the iconic Dunhill brand. It was at his behest that Geoffrey Parker’s unparalleled skills in leather inlaying were employed to fashion a chess set, a pivotal moment in our storied history.

Today, Geoffrey Parker’s legacy thrives under the stewardship of its third generation. Elliot, grandson of Geoffrey himself, has been an integral part of the family business since the tender age of 16 and has recently assumed the mantle of Managing Director from his father, Max.

A Geoffrey Parker board game transcends the ordinary, embodying the epitome of craftsmanship through time-honoured techniques and decades of expertise in seamlessly inlaying leathers to fashion a flawless playing surface. As masters of our craft, it comes as no surprise that luxury brands invariably turn to us when seeking to elevate their game offerings. Yet, beyond their aesthetic allure, our games are imbued with a steadfast commitment to professional gaming, designed to meet the exacting standards of tournaments and competitions.

Each board is meticulously crafted to competition specifications, with subtle features ingeniously integrated to ensure fair play.

Consider, for instance, the ubiquitous issue of biased dice. A standard set of die, with its uneven weight distribution, tilts the odds in favour of certain outcomes, undermining the integrity of the game. At Geoffrey Parker, we address this concern with professional weighted dice, meticulously balanced to eliminate any unfair advantage. Similarly, our dice cups feature a clever a trip—to ensure that each roll is truly random, thwarting any attempt to manipulate the outcome.

Whether you’re a seasoned backgammon aficionado or simply enjoy hosting an elegant poker night for friends, our collection caters to all tastes and preferences. Nearly all our products are handcrafted to order, allowing for unparalleled customization without any minimum quantity requirements. Our dedicated team stands ready to collaborate with you, crafting bespoke pieces that reflect your unique vision and style.

For those who prefer instant gratification, our curated selection of stock items await, available for immediate order. While these pieces are offered in predetermined colours, rest assured that each one is painstakingly crafted by our master artisans to the exacting standards set forth by Geoffrey Parker over six decades ago.

In tandem with our esteemed luxury board games, we specialise in crafting bespoke games tables tailored to our clients’ exacting specifications. These handcrafted marvels seamlessly integrate our exquisite board games, offering a fusion of elegance and entertainment. Our diverse range of games tables spans from opulent poker tables to sophisticated backgammon tables. For those torn between classics, we present tables that harmoniously blend traditional games with timeless casino favourites, ensuring there’s something for every discerning enthusiast.

Throughout our illustrious 66-year history, we’ve collaborated closely with numerous interior designers, embarking on truly exceptional projects. From meticulously selecting non-flammable materials for safe usage aboard private jets to curating materials and colour schemes that seamlessly align with a home’s aesthetic, we strive to bring each designer’s vision to life with unparalleled precision and sophistication.
