These fun travel games are all legends in their own right.  Crafted from eco-friendly hardwood, they all come in their own finely crafted wooden box with lid.  They make great affordable and compact gifts for adults and kids alike.  With all-time classics like snakes and ladders, draughts, chinese checkers, reversal, four-in-a-row, ludo and solitaire there's bound to be one that brings back great memories from times when screens were non existent and games were social, not anti-social.

Originating in India, Snakes and Ladders is a long standing family favourite.  This compact travel set for four players is perfect for your next holiday or great as a casual coffee table addition.  135mm x 135mm x 28mm

This family classic was surprisingly not invented in China.   This form of the game originated in Germany in 1892 as a star shaped version of the American game "Halma".  The 6 pointed star caters for 2, 3 or 6 players.  Each player must jump their 8 pegs to the opposite star point before their opponents.  130mm x 145mm x 30mm

The earliest form of draughts or "checkers" as it is known in some parts of the world, was played by the Egyptians more than 3000 years ago.  A fabulous holiday classic that requires strategy and intellect.   A great stepping stone to chess for kids.    135mm x 135mm x 33mm

Ludo dates back to the 6th Century in India where the game was known as Pachisi.  Race your four pegs around the board and get them all home before your three opponents can do the same.  Land on your opponent's peg and send them back to the start.  Ludo is frustratingly good fun.  130mm x 130mm x 25mm

This addictive game of strategy is simple to learn and an excellent brain teaser.  It dates back to  the 18th Century and today is hugely popular in Japan where national championships are played.  Players take turns to add one peg of their colour to the board.  Any opposing pegs topped and tailed by your colour must flip over and reverse to your colour.  The winner is the player with the most pegs on the board when the game ends.   135mm x 135mm x 35mm

Solitaire is an addictive puzzle classic with roots that can be traced back to the 17th Century.  Aim of the challenge is to transform the board from one empty space in the centre peg hole to just one peg left in the middle by hopping pegs to eliminate them.   Make the game competitive to see who can finish with the fewest number of pegs on the board. 135mm x 135mm x 35mm
