Handmade Luxury Board Games

You’ll find family favorites in our collection of luxury board games that are nothing like the ones you grew up playing. Scrabble, Monopoly, backgammon, Rummikub, cards, and chess — family game night will never be the same. What makes a luxury board game so valuable? Shinbone Alley’s luxury board games must meet specific criteria to be added to our collection.

First, they have to be made from high quality materials, like sustainably sourced hardwood, ethically sourced cowhide leather, and polished minerals and metals. Second, the games should be suitable for display, like an artistic piece of home decor (as well as a tempting invitation to sit down and play). Third, we look for heirloom-quality board games whose pieces and parts are built to last — and whose boxes will never need duct tape and glue like the cardboard varieties we grew up with (and no offense intended to our thrifty parents and grandparents, who could work miracles with a roll of tape). Fourth, no electronics! We want our customers to unplug and enjoy facetime and competition the way we did when we were kids.
