Nice quality pieces.

Nice quality wood pieces. YMI should consider a thin cardboard board with this set. A paper board brings down the quality of the set a bit, but it is still a good set for the money.

I got shogi pieces, and while they were lost in the mail, they came perfectly! They feel great, and are incredibly fun to play with

A beginner's shogi purchase

The shogi pieces were absolutely cool. None of them were damaged and the instructions and box container are very useful.

While the paper board is helpful it would be nice if the company was able to sell wooden shogi boards again to match this item.
