Established in 1948 in the industrial belly of Brooklyn, NY, Crisloid quickly built a reputation on unrivaled, American-made, premium quality products. Company founders and gaming enthusiasts Alphonse and Lucky Lodato believed that quality materials and painstaking engineering were tantamount. Their execution of this philosophy swiftly propelled Crisloid into its global position as a worldwide gaming supplier.

Today, Crisloid relentlessly maintains and improves its standards of quality within our well-equipped 25,000 ft² facility. Working together as one, our in-house wood shop, resin casting, case department, silk screening, design team, and much more strive to continuously create the finest classic games.

We fully respect the entrepreneurial spirit and pride ourselves on being one of the few that offer custom designed sets. View some of our previous custom work or design your own backgammon set.

Here you’ll find many of your classic gaming needs, from backgammon sets to dice, mah jong, and checkers. From our quiet-cork playing surfaces to our hallmark hand-crafted and polished checkers, every detail is designed and built with the finest workmanship right here in Providence, Rhode Island USA.

It’s not just a game; it’s a test of character.
