In our 20s, my wife and I played on a briefcase-style board with a soft brown casing. We were all business, playing two out of three, make it three out of five, in Crown Heights, Carroll Gardens, Ann Arbor, and back on the Upper West Side. The board was a constant on the makeshift coffee tables and bookshelves of each not-for-long apartment.
Two decades later, at our friends’ place upstate, the table is the board, a gleaming piece of sculpted rattan. It lacks the patina of too-small walkups and U-Haul moves. But it’s a showstopper. –Josh Albertson
