Bamboo 2-Inch Reversible 19x19/13x13 Go Game Set Board with Single Convex Yunzi Stones and Bamboo Bowls
Master the strategy game of Go on this traditional bamboo go board with genuine professional Yunzi stones and bamboo bowls.
- Reversible Go Board (Goban): The 19x19 side is for standard gameplay, while the 13x13 is great for shorter games; The board measures 18.5 x 17.4 x 2 inches (47 x 44.2 x 5 centimeters) with Chinese standard size grids of 22 x 23.5 millimeters; The entire set weighs 10.5kg (23lbs)
- Bamboo Board: This board is made of solid strips of durable bamboo, pressed together one layer at a time; Wood grain may vary slightly from photos; A protective felt sleeve is included with the board
- Single Convex Stones: Yunzi stones have been traditionally made for almost a thousand years from the Yunnan Province in southern China; They're also the official stones of all professional Chinese Weiqi (Go) tournaments; These single-convex stones produce a louder 'snap' from the flat side when played on the board and can be flipped over for playing out variations when reviewing a game; Each size 3 stone measures 5.7 x 22 millimeters (about 0.22 x 0.86 inch)
- Solid Bamboo Go Bowls, "Gosu": The natural bamboo wood bowls include securing straps and carrying bag for easy storage and transport
- The Way to Go: Included is Karl Baker's beginner classic booklet explaining the essential rules and strategies of Go
The yunzi stones are a true joy to play with, I love that it's single convex so when I'm working out variations of a problem I can reverse which stone side I'm playing and early discern the new stones vs old. The Bamboo board at first had me a little nervous but I've had zero warp to deal with so really glad I chose these together. My only complaint is the lids of the bowls are flat which means I have to use extra bowls for captured stones.
This Go set is high quality and will last a long time. It shipped very fast as well.
Excellent experience. Everything first class. Blazing fast shipping.
I bought this as a graduation present for myself, and it did not disappoint. The board and stones are high quality, and everything arrived on-time and intact (despite two black stones breaking on-route, but there are plenty of extras anyway). I would buy from Yellow Mountain imports again for sure!
Beautiful go set and timely arrival
