This was my very first Go board. The board and bowls are very nice, but I was also impressed with the melamine stones because they do not feel like "cheap" game pieces. Playing on an actual Go board with my friend was much more satisfying than playing online 5/5.
The product was as expected and received in a timely manner
Excellent! The game is beautifully made and was shipped very quickly.
The board I received was beautiful and expertly wrapped. The stones and containers were polished and had no chips. I have no complaints of this product at all. Shipping took a little longer than expected, even though I paid for 2-day shipping, but other than that the product itself is fantastic.
Got it when I recently learned go. The board and bowls are really nice and strong bamboo. The stones are quality melamine stones that feel really smooth and give a pretty nice clack sound. The carrying bag for bowls and case for board both work very well. I'm happy with my experience the book that came with also taught me a lot. Good job YMI.
