Why Play Backgammon On Your Phone When You Can Spend $US25k On This Set?

There's a reason this backgammon set costs $US25,000. It's not a very good one, mind you - unless you happen to collect carbon fibre objects. The pieces are chiselled from 24-carat gold and silver, too. No diamonds, sadly.

While I love playing backgammon, there's no way in hell I'd consider spending $US25,260 on the briefcase-set. But would you? [Carbofan via RichTig via BornRich]
