It arrived pretty quick, and none of the stones were broken or anything. The stones and board are both very beautiful.
Set feels great, looks great on my table. Wood will have minor imperfections since this isnt solid wood but I've done nothing but enjoy it. At a minimum you sound buy this for a proper Go experience.
Love the set! The 2" bamboo board is nice and durable. The double convex yunzi stones are fantastic. They have a great feel to them and are a joy to play with. The bowls match the board and the lids work well for placing captured stones into. I wasn't expecting much from the bag the bowls come with, but it turns out that I'm happy the bag was included! No regrets about this set; I highly recommend it.
