Was looking for a cheap but decent quality set to take to work for games over lunch. This fits the bill perfectly. Did wash the stones using dish soap and a colander to make sure any manufacturing residue was gone and it was ready to play.
I ordered my Shin Kaya set a few weeks ago. It arrived within a couple days. Fast! I think the bamboo board is beautiful and the double convex stones are easy to play with. I have been wanting to learn the game Go for some time. This pandemic presented the perfect chance. My son and I have been playing every night and I am looking forward to getting good enough and confident enough to play on a 19x19 board. When I do, I will be ordering it from Yellow Mountain. Great stuff!
Just starting to learn the game of Go and this set is perfect for my needs. Well printed and finished piece of hardwood. Would definitely recommend
Game board is perfect for beginners to start on a 9x9, to later upgrade to a 13x13. Quality is well made, and makes you want to upgrade to better stones once you get good at the game. Recommended for beginners for the reversible boards
