4 – Garden Draughts

Draughts is another classic board game which we would have all played during our time at school. The game can be compared to similar games believed to be played in Ancient Egypt and Rome. Samuel Johnson wrote the earliest piece of literature about the game in 1756 and the game has become popular as draughts or checkers across the western world.

Our Garden Draughts set includes 12 black discs, 12 white discs, interlocking foam pieces that construct a 1.2m x 1.2m playing board and a carrier box to store it all in. This complete set is currently priced at £29.95.
