MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

If you love to play backgammon, but don't have a board or table, a magnetic set may be just what you need. Magnetic sets work like puzzle boards, with magnetic pieces that fit together to form a game board. You can set up the game board anywhere, including your fridge, desk or nightstand. These sets include pieces, checkers, dice and a timer, so you can play at any time of day.

Magnetic backgammon sets come in a variety of styles and sizes, from kids' sets to adult sets. These sets also vary in price, but they tend to cost less than traditional backgammon sets, which can run $150 or more. Our testing team evaluates magnetic sets for ease of use, including setup, play and cleanup. We also evaluate how durable the pieces are, how durable the checkers and timer are, and how easy it is to keep track of the score. Here are the best magnetic backgammon sets to buy in 2022:

Amerous 3-in-1 12" Folding Travel Magnetic /Checker Chess and Backgammon Chess Set

by Amerous

Portable: It portable and easy to travel with chess board, it easily stored away in a suitcase or backpack yet large enough for a good game of chess anywhere

The Amerous 3-in-1 12" Folding Travel Chess /Checker and Backgammon Chess Set is a fun way for the whole family to play games together. This 3-in-1 set comes with 3 pieces of chess, 3 pieces of checkers, and 1 backgammon board, so the whole family can game together. The chess pieces are magnetic, so they won't fall off when your car bumps into a curb or tree. The board is constructed from high impact plastic, so it's both sturdy and resistant to damage. (The boards in our two previous top picks are made of cardstock, which is subject to wear and tear.) The pieces also have a glossy, finished look, making it much nicer than other sets we've tested. The set comes with game instructions, so you can start playing right away. The pieces aren't weighted, so they're a bit lighter than the weighted pieces in our top pick, but they still offer good heft. The set has the option to lie flat so you can either carry it in a backpack or put it on a shelf. The board is not magnetic, so you have to be more careful transporting it. Overall, this is a high-quality set that does a great job of combining 3 classic games.

We also like the fact that the set comes with its own storage bag, so you can easily keep it organized when you're not playing. The magnetic boards aren't as sturdy as the wooden boards we tested, but they're not intended to be. They also don't come with a chess board, so you'll need to buy one separately. The game boards are small enough that they can be stored inside a suitcase, making them a great travel companion. The JIMIYOKI 3 in 1 Game Set is a good set for anyone who likes to play chess, checkers and backgammon. It makes a great travel companion, and it's fun and educational to play these classic games.

The Backgammon family is one of the most popular board games around, and this Middleton Games Magnetic Portfolio Backgammon Set is a fun way to take it with you anywhere. The set comes with everything you need to play: magnetic checkers, a velvet playing surface, and a compact travel case. The playing surface is a little small, so if you're playing with family and friends, you'll probably have to use two sets. The magnetic checkers are sturdy, but the green felt playing surface was a little rough, although it's possible this was just the sample we received. The case is small and lightweight, so it's easy to carry around, and it closes with a magnetic closure. The set comes with instructions and a magnetic travel map, so you can find opponents almost anywhere. The set also comes in several different colors, including red, blue, green, and orange, and there's even a version for kids.

KIDAMI Magnetic Folding Backgammon Set Classic Board Game for Kids and Adults(11.2X11.2inches)

KIDAMI Magnetic Folding Backgammon Set Classic Game Board for Kids and Adults(11.2X11.2inches)

by KIDAMI

Excellent QualityThe board and pieces are made up of HIPS the premium plastics. The reinforced chessboard is designed as a storage box that can be easily opened and closed, and the pieces can be stored in it.

The KIDAMI board is an attractive and well built set. The pieces are relatively simple, with squares of varying sizes, so it's easy enough for kids to learn. The setup is quick and easy. The pieces are nicely weighted and the magnets are strong enough to hold the pieces in place, but they aren't so strong as to be disruptive. The magnets also don't interfere with gameplay, so the pieces can "grip" the board without attaching to it. The board is durable, and it's made of sturdy plastic and laminate. The fold-out design makes it easy to carry and store. The magnetic pieces are a nice bonus, since the pieces don't attach to the board, and there isn't any risk of losing pieces. If you're looking for a good board for kids and adults, the KIDAMI board is a good bet.
