- Reversible Go Board (Goban): 19x19 playing field on one side and 13x13 on the other; The 19x19 side is for standard gameplay, while the 13x13 is great for learning rules and fundamentals and for quick games; The board measures 18.6 x 17.4 x 0.8 inch (47.3 x 44.2 x 2 centimeters) with Chinese standard size grids of 22 x 23.5 millimeters
- Bamboo Board: This board is made of solid strips of bamboo, pressed together one layer at a time; Bamboo is known for its beauty, sturdiness and sustainability; Wood grain may vary slightly from photos; A protective felt sleeve is included with the board
- Double Convex Go Stones: Yunzi stones have been made for almost a thousand years from the Yunnan Province in southern China; They're beautiful to look at, carry a nice heavy feel, and possess deep sounding 'snap' qualities; Yunzi are also the official stones of all professional Chinese Weiqi (Go) tournaments; Each stone measures 8.8 x 21mm (about 0.35 x 0.83")
- Solid Bamboo Go Bowls, "Gosu": The natural bamboo wood bowls include securing straps and carrying bag for easy storage and transportation
- The Way to Go: Included is Karl Baker's beginner classic booklet explaining the essential rules and strategies of Go
Everything came solidly packaged. There were no damaged items to be found apart from one broken black stone. This was ok b/c they sent six extra stones of both colors. The board is beautiful as well as the stones. There are two very minor defects on the board as a result of sub perfect sealing of the bamboo. However I would not let this possibility dissuade you. The defects are very difficult to see unless you look at a certain angle. Overall 9/10.
