    How to correct?

    There is an error with bold characters in the sentence below:
    The playing pieces are used in blackgammon are made of contrasting odors, frequently black and white or red and white.
    May be" playing pieces " --> " playing pieces which" ,but I am not sure.
    I wonder if I can say "The playing pieces used in blackgammon are made of contrasting odors, frequently black and white or red and white"?

    I'd just call them 'pieces', but don't see what's wrong with 'playing pieces'. However, are you sure that they are made of 'contrasting odors'?

    How about using 2 verb in passive voice" are used" and " are made" in the same sentence, is it OK?
