Bought a fantastic backgammon set for 1/3 of the price I found it in London. Great quality! Highly recommended!

Another word for Manopoulos Backgammon... "Excellence" What can i say. I bought a backgammon set (Olive burl) for my son and he loved it! Perfect job, outstanding customer service and most of all, unique gift. Well done Manopoulos! p.s. Special thanks to Korina for her suggestion and her service.

The shop sells all kinds of sets, from cheap ones to top end ones. Discounts are available, especially if there are any flaws in the set. I found the service very friendly and I got good advice and a good discount.

Order their best Manopoulos Premium Backgammon board and received a used board with a lot of flaws with ugly uneven points and visible gluing and so on. There were also only one pair of dice and no doubling cube. The convex playing surface with scratches are really unacceptable and unsatisfactory. When I send a complaint by email they never answered..... More

I'm a Greek visiting Athens and was looking for a high quality backgammon set. Tavli. They sell Manopoulos sets, which are very good sets but Ekavi gets the lower quality sets that have flaws. They sell the 2nds. Sets that have knots in the wood or have other flaws. They sell them at top dollar and tell you that's the... More

I bought a nice travel size magnetic chess and backgammon board, only to discover at home that it was missing two of the white pawns. Seems like a nice enough store, but make sure you open the box and count all the pieces!!! ( Will now contact the store about my problem and hope they will send me my missing... More

We were searching for worry beads that weren't plastic and cheap looking. We found this store after closing, but went back the next day. They have beautiful chess and backgammon boards with a fairly large range of prices. What we bought were beautiful worry beads that were going to be gifts to high school girls. They had a very nice... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
