ROLZ is both Chess and Checkers, featuring a durable, vegan leather board and double-sided, silk-screened resin game pieces. With a unique roll-up design, ROLZ is made for fun on the go, and its distinct, checkered profile makes it an attractive conversation-starter for any space. Imagined by Umbra’s Vice President of Design, Matt Carr, ROLZ is whimsical, durable and extremely giftable.

STAX is 4 in a Row like it has never been seen before. Beautifully crafted in brass with frosted playing pieces, STAX blurs the line between entertainment and decor, a game that never needs to be put away. Umbra’s senior lead designer Sung Wook Park created STAX with all your favourite rooms in mind, not just the game room.
