Magnetic 14.3" x 13.5" Go Board w/ Single Convex Magnetic Plastic Stones Set
Brand: Yellow Mountain Imports
Why settle for a small, flimsy Go set on the road? Finally, a portable Go set with a 19x19 board of real quality. The reinforced tube carrier comes with a handy shoulder strap and the set is large enough that you can play the stones without using tweezers or chopsticks. The go board is highly durable. It will bend, twist, do yoga, and always keep its original shape! Simply roll it in the opposite direction it was placed in the travel tube and it will lay perfectly flat.
The go stones are magnetic so don't worry about a sneeze, a bump on the car, or airplane turbulence on the plane messing up your game. The board is magnetic too! Stick it to a chalkboard or dry erase board for small group instruction or keep it on your fridge to ponder go problems.
- Board measures 14.3" x 13.5" x 0" (363mm x 343mm x 1mm). Playing field is 19x19.
- 181 black and 180 white Magnetic Plastic stones. Single convex stones measure 5mm tall and 18mm wide (approximately 0.2" x 0.71").
- Stones come in individual cloth pouches.
- Includes 180 white pieces and 181 black magnetic stones.
Good quality all around, and good service.
Very well made. Travel / storage tube is durable. Everything works as advertised. Highly recommended.
The order came in three parts. The shin-kaya go board, and the go bowls and bag both came in three days. Very impressive! They came by UPS and Fedex. The third part, the velcro bowl straps, got lost somehow with the tracking, resuming days later. The most unimportant part of the order (thank goodness), so no big deal. Amusing, in that it was delivered by USPS. I was very impressed with the go board. As a carpenter, I recognized that it was made out of pieces that were quarter-sawn out of the original log. Quarter-sawn is the only way to cut logs that results in warp-stable pieces. It's also the most expensive, as there is always more waste than there is with the usual way wood is cut. All "regular" wood you buy from the lumber yards is cut the cheaper way. So the grain on top and bottom of the board was straight and beautiful. It also takes more effort to align the pieces together to get this effect. I am very impressed (and delighted) to have gotten such a high quality board for only $58.00. Thank you very much.
