Mr. Manopoulos saw his father regularly play games in his free time in 1968. He realized that such games as backgammon and chess are stress-reducing and provide fun. On his twenty-first, Manopoulos designed his first bronze chess pieces at the art school and since then it has gone fast. His passion for the two games is reflected in the handmade chessboards, chess pieces and backgammon boards. With a Manopoulos game board you not only have a beautiful game at home, but your interior is also provided with a real showpiece.
