Received as a Gift - Very Pretty

Asked for this for my birthday & rec'd as a gift from my kids. Love the case & stones. One suggestion: we have limited storage, so took it out of the box to keep. But, the instruction booklet doesn't quite fit in a stone tray, so if you try to keep it with it, the cover doesn't fully lie flat. I managed to cut off the top and bottom of book and rotated in one direction it then fits the tray (just barely). However, it's kind of a hack job to cut that booklet - would be nice if it came with materials that fit in the trays from the get-go (i.e., would be nice if the instruction booklet was factory cut to fit the tray).

Great Travel and First Board

A very good board. The color is beautiful, and it is easy to travel with. The felt lining on the trays and inside keep the trays within stable and stop them from slipping. However, the pieces themselves are a bit slippery. Additionally, while the color is pretty, I can see it being an issue since this is a board meant to travel. A regular blond color would work better, but this is still great. The clasp is very weak, which is a shame, but it will be easy to install a stronger one if that’s a worry. I believe there should be a handle on the clasp side to help with carrying, which I may try to install myself. Overall, this is a great board for anyone looking for a first or portable set. Highly recommend!

Review of Cherry Pattern Folding Go Game Set Board with Double Convex Melamine Stones

Good. Exactly as shown and described. Three relatively minor issues: 1) Stone size is fine, but they're too slippery, which is less than ideal on a portable set. I'm going to see if there's some solution I could put them in to roughen up the surfaces a little. They may not be as pretty afterward, but function is most important. 2) Catch is too weak. Unfortunately there's not much holding the stones in place when it come undone during transport. I'm planning to replace the catch, which at least will be easy. 3) The board is stained rosewood, which especially in a portable board means it tends to wear off at the edges, showing the lighter underlying color. That was as expected, though. If at some point I decide I care enough, the worn edges and any scratches on the board surface can be camouflaged (carefully!) with a permanent marker. This raises a related point, which is that since YMI doesn't currently offer another wood folding board it would be better to have this in the more usual blond finish instead.

A classic game at great value

This item is an extremely fine quality. The wood is smooth and aesthetically pleasing, with very crisp and lovely detailing on the grid. The stones are perfect for all hand sizes and the included trays make set up easy. The clasp is a little small for the size but a bag will help reduce risk of accidental spillage. Absolutely a good investment for a coffee table board game.
