I don't usually write reviews, but I must make an exception in this case. The set is perfect for the beginner such as myself and a good value for the price. My order arrived undamaged and within the promised time-frame. I was surprised by the extra care YMI took with the shipping box to help ensure the order would not be damaged during transit. I would definitely recommend Yellow Mountain Imports to anyone looking for good products and service at reasonable prices.
Perfect board for tsumego, highly recommend! Pieces are plastic, but still hefty and very nice to use
YMI's quality standards are definitely a cut above their competitors at this price point Delivery was very timely, and their dedication to customer service is truly next level! I had a small issue and Mary solved it in a blurred instant! I was quite impressed and I don't say that very often. I highly recommend giving them a try! -Mick S.
This is my first Go set and overall it's a good starter set. Shipping was quick and arrived packaged well. Will order from here again.
Beautiful smooth two-sided board, the pieces have a lovely texture and make a nice clicking sound when placed. I am an inexperienced beginner, but I like this set.
