Just received this item I've bought if off eBay's YMI store. Got amazed about the extreme care put by the seller when packed it. It arrived in perfect condition, not even a single stone chipped (something I had been reading about somewhere else). Stones came in the usual excess, 194 white and 192 black, so plenty enough to replace any that may be lost or damage over time. Bamboo board and bowls are gorgeous and delicately finished. Truth be told, I've purchased the etched version of the 0.8" thick bamboo board, however, as it seems to be no longer available, I'd like to leave feedback on this pretty much the same item. Last, but not least, I'd like to express my appreciation and gratitude to the people at YMI who answered every email I've sent before deciding to purchase this product.
This set is of very high Quality and ascetically pleasing. It took a while to condition the stone but was worth the effort. The cover for the board is of good quality as is the carrying case for the stones. I would recommend this set to anyone serious about playing the ancient game of GO.
