The origins of Dal Negro go back as far as 1756, when a small factory for playing cards started business in Treviso, Italy. The Dal Negro family took over the factory in 1928 and they have improved and extended their manufacturing methods and range ever since. Dal Negro's Playing cards portfolio includes triplex, cardboard and 100% PVC home, clubs and casinos. Their games revolve around their beautiful wooden box making resulting in elegant, high-quality production Backgammon sets, Chess pieces and boards, roulette wheels and children's games.
In 2002, Dal Negro moved to a larger factory and headquarters and today Dal Negro operate with over 60 employees in premises that cover 15,000 square metres with ten external workshops. Playing cards are still the main business of the Dal Negro but they are also world leaders in Backgammons sets, Backgammon cases, Chess, roulette equipment and other table games.
Over the years Dal Negro have come to specialise in beautiful looking game boxes, humidors, Backgammon sets and the like. Their basic form is to make the Backgammon set frame from a good solid but nice-looking hardwood such as Walnut or Cherrywood and then to make a lid from a particularly special timber such as briarwood or ebony or some Burr Walnut with a spectacular grain. This forms the eye-catching exterior.
The Backgammon interior is often a matching wooden playing surface with inlaid points from a carefully selected contrasting wood of equal beauty such as Maple, Cherrywood or Toulipier.
For those who prefer a quieter Backgammon surface, Dal Negro have two options. Firstly, they have developed Similpelle, a modern substitute for leather designed to have a similar feel and look but to perform better and last longer. Dal Negro's classic smart Backgammon cases were originally made entirely of Similpelle.
A more modern development from the Dal Negro development workshop is a new material for Backgammon play - a modern composite fibre surface which is extremely long-lasting and provides a supreme surface for the play of Backgammon - the counters glide across the surface as smoothly a silk over marble.
The Dal Negro Backgammon range provides excellent options for backgammon experts, devotees as well as those who just appreciate fine craftwork and exquisite wooden articles. The extremely high quality of their work means that their Backgammon sets are perfect for presents - wedding gifts or anniversaries, birthdays and leaving gifts.
A Dal Negro Backgammon set not only looks and feels good, it plays well too which explains why dedicated players continue to turn to Dal Negro time and again. Attention to detail is the order of the day - the magnetic clasps and hinges are elegant and unobtrusive, the playing surface exquisite to play on the, the tactile playing stones beautifully aesthetic whether you have the pearlescent styled counters or the more modern lazer-engraved pieces. Even the dice seem special.

As their leading British retailer, Masters Games specialises in Dal Negro Backgammon and roulette and continues to stock a large range of other gaming items in the Dal Negro portfolio.
