As a beginner buying 2 sets, I wanted an inexpensive option. If I end up playing a lot, I can invest in a more expensive set. This is well made and very good quality for the price. There were no defects I could see. I am very happy with my purchase.
Wondeful set, perfect for beginners
Roommate and I were looking to learn to play go, and this is what I landed on. For an inexpensive price, this is perfect for us to learn on. The stones are very satisfying to snap down onto the board. If I ever want to get someone else into the game, this is what I'll get them.
So friggin pleased!
yeah! the “beginners” 9x9-13x13 Beechwood goban/set is Awesome!
Lightweight and portable and the etched grid makes for a great play/feel.
Planning on ordering another or two for my budding Go club :-)
Quality control is bad
