Review of Bamboo 0.8" Reversible 19x19/13x13 Go Game Board
Very good! I got this because the thicker but otherwise identical bamboo board I got as part of a YMI set was too heavy to be conveniently portable. That one can stay at home for use with guests and this one can come with! The board sleeve is also excellent, as it is on the thicker board.
It's a decent board that will go through many years of use. I already had my own yunzi stones and I'm glad to have a board that matches their dimensions and quality. Thanks! The felt sheath for the board is really slick, though it's kind of wooly. I should have looked to see if there were other designs to the sheath. Oh well! Love the board
Really nice board. Lines are clean and sharp, the finish is even, and the bamboo layering looks really nice.
About 1% of the stones have defects such as a bump or ridge. Otherwise, I like their thickness and density.
