custom Chess set
For The Game Campaign Jeremy designed a custom chess set. Each piece brings to life members of the bird kingdom. The game of chess can be reflective of life in so many ways, each move made influences the rest of the game. Each play can involves planning the next several steps. These powerful members of the bird kingdom bring new dimension to the game this board offers.
When experiencing Jeremy’s art you will find his approach unique, prolific, and raw. His work is based in storytelling and his imagination creates endless material. People tend to be drawn to his playful ways and we hope you will be too!

Backgammon | the "Bible" of the game
Backgammon is the most highly-regarded work on the subject, often referred to as "The Bible" of the game. Written between 1973 and 1976 by Paul Magriel and Renée Magriel, Backgammon was the first book to lucidly explain the inner workings and advanced positional play of the game. The most important aspects are broken down into their component parts and then explained with a unique, easy-to-understand, step-by-step building-block approach. The book is enhanced by 600 clear and precise diagrams, a glossary and tables, including the betting odds. For any player who means to take the game seriously and wants to play well, Backgammon is an indispensable guide.
Mr. Magriel is often considered the foremost backgammon teacher and theorist in the world, and is one of the leading tournament winners of all time.
Now, to help The Game Campaign, Paul Magriel has graciously agreed to sign a limited number of hardcover copies of his classic work, to be given to our supporters. We’ll make every effort to provide only very fine copies of the 1974 edition of the book with jacket.
