— Finally! Eco-friendly BagGamesTM are the new classic board games like checkers, chess and backgammon that come in a bag and are now available at www.BagGames.com.
These travel games are compact enough to go anywhere, yet the all-in-one attached board folds out to a full-sized game. With the introduction of the patent-pending, one-piece bag and board game combinations of BagGammonTM, BagChessTM and BagCheckersTM, entrepreneur and product developer R. Scott Dotson has solved the problem of anyone on the go or on the road with family and friends who want to enjoy classic board games together.
BagGamesTM fill the gap between standard, full-sized games (too big and bulky to travel with) and the numerous small travel games (clumsy, miniature imitations). BagGamesTM pack easily, but unlike the miniature travel games, the cinch-bag contains an attached full-sized board and game pieces. BagGame’sTM unique design allows for easy clean up and storage. Just fold the attached cloth board, lift one side and let the pieces slide into the bag and you’re done! BagGamesTM go anywhere – in the smallest suitcase, backpack, pocket, or even clipped to your belt.

“The creation of BagGamesTM began on a surf trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica where the evenings were the perfect downtime to play backgammon,” says Dotson. “The problem was we didn’t bring a game because no one wanted to lug around a full-sized board in our already stuffed backpacks. We could have brought along a travel version, but who really likes playing with those tiny little pieces on a miniature board anyway. No one in town had even heard of backgammon, much less had one for sale. Our only option was to conjure up our own makeshift board. We found a small sign company to draw up the board per our description and used colones (Costa Rican currency) for the checkers.”
Why bring this up? Because one idea was if Tamarindo had a t-shirt shop, they could silkscreen a game board onto some cloth and play on it. They never did find that t-shirt shop, but it was during that search that the seeds of BagGammonTM and BagGamesTM started to grow.
