Bamboo 0.8" Etched Go Table Board Goban
Brand: Yellow Mountain Imports
This striking Go board is made out of solid bamboo. It's a very elegant way to play Go, combining the strength and beauty of bamboo - a grass species with the tensile strength of iron - with the timeless game of Go, a game so complicated that it's been calculated there are more possible Go games than there are protons in the universe. This board is made of solid strips of bamboo, pressed together one layer at a time. The lines are engraved into the board. On the underside of this Chinese standard size 19x19 board is a 13x13 quick game board. The lines are engraved slightly into the board in the fashion of ancient Go boards.

YM etched board bit may not be worth the price.
nice board . may not be worth extra price.
This is my first full sized (not travel or magnetic) go board and I love it! It is beautiful and the etched lines mean it will stay that way. I like the smaller board on the flip side, too. I am still a rank beginner and it helps to have a smaller board to play on. Shipping was fast and it was wrapped up tightly against damage. Thank-you so much!
The board lastes about 2 weeks before one of the bamboo panels started to break off the board.
Excellent service and products
Very nice bamboo board. Perfect for the club. Very sturdy and beautifully finished
