"Are the pieces magnetic, so that they don't move?"
The little game set is very small which makes it a great travel companion. The stones are also very small which makes it a little hard to pick them up and move them but it also makes it cute and fun to play with. We have already taken it on a long trip and played on the plane and at the airport....

I purchased this as a gift for my husband because he loves to play backgammon and has been looking for a travel size set for traveling. I thought this would be perfect, but I was wrong. I am sending it back because it is not fuctional to actually play with. The wood in not treated and rough...could easily get a splinter from touching the board and pieces. The pieces are also tiny and do not have magnets or any other means of securing the tiny pieces on the tiny board. So dissapointed!! :(Read More
