When the board is closed it appears to be a set of two large books that could be placed on a typical bookshelf. On the spine of the first "book" an imprint in gold letters is Evenings At Home Vol. 1. The second spine had almost the same imprint - Evenings At Home Vol. 2. When the "books" are open they reveal a standard backgammon board of 42.7cm long x 48cm wide x 3.5cm thick.
