Once you've set up camp and started the fire, un-roll this portable game board and set up a game of checkers or roll the dice for backgammon with your adventure companion. The smart design of the roll makes it ideal to carry in a pack. The game roll is also a great way to keep children entertained when traveling when the situation calls for electronic devices to be turned off. It has a checker board on one side, a backgammon board on the other, and pockets at the end of each board to keep the leather game pieces and bone dice contained. A brass buckle and leather strap keeps the board rolled up when not in use. As many games get played, the leather will patina beautifully with time.
This game roll requires no special care. We suggest that it is kept away from moisture and direct sunlight to prevent the leather from cracking and the canvas from fading. If you wish, you may condition the leather periodically with neatsfoot oil or wax such as our Beeswax Leather Conditioner.
An intrepid traveler, Andrew McAteer found that the available bags, carriers and accessories on the market didn't properly suit his on-the-go gear requirements, so he began to design and make his own goods. Working out of a small workshop in Astoria, New York, Andrew creates products that he needs and, by extension, that others might also find useful.
