Backgammon is believed to have originated at around 3’000 B.C. in Mesopotamia and is the oldest known recorded game in history. It’s popularity increased again in the 1960’s due to the efforts of Prince Alexis Obelensky who organized the first Official Backgammon World Championships in the Bahamas, the winning of which became backgammon’s highest honour.
Our traveler’s version designed for Pelikamo is rollable and entirely handmade in Switzerland of heavy canvas and beech wood with brass details. At an unfolded 44x55cm it’s perfect for a serious game whilst still being easier to pack than traditional cases.

«Bob Last, The Man from Fast. The sound of serious young men. The definer of Post Punk,» says Bill Drummond of the KLF in his memoir 45. Jon Savage writes in 1993: «You could say that Fast Product stands at just the point where Postmodernism fully moved into popular culture — a 1979 Harpers & Queen article by po-mo architect Charles Jencks featured Fast Product sleeves — and that all the discussions about packaging, consumerism, etc., were just a prelude to a more intense, reference laden consumption. You could point to the label as containing all the cutting edge elements that would become mainstream styles: new pop, synth pop, rock funk. You could say that for all that period’s speed, wit and passion, that the drive of the media industries was unstoppable: and you would be right.» Here speaks Mr. Fast himself...
Written by Bob Last and Christopher Roth, initiated and designed by Rodakis’ Pascal Alexander for Club Zukunft.
