Exotic backgammon sets can be made of leather, alligator leather and rare hardwoods, and they sometimes use exotic gems and stones as playing stones. Geoffrey Parker has designed a backgammon set constructed of alligator and sting ray leather with solid gold playing stones inset with 1 carat of diamonds apiece.
Online retailers such as GammonVillage.com and BackGammonHellas.com feature many unique and exotic backgammon sets. Sets constructed of classic hardwoods with metal or gemstone playing stones are available. Personalized cases and plaques for cases are an option to make any backgammon set unique. Backgammon sets made of leather with high quality playing stones range in price from $150 to more than $900 as of 2015.
