Easy and fast delivery. Elegant, beautiful and fun. A great Christmas present for my partner, he loves it and so do I!
beautiful set, wonderful heavy quality, well packaged, quick shipping even during the holiday season.
The stones are absolutely beautiful, oiled and washed they are smooth and hefty. The board is quite heavy (bamboo) so it isn’t too convenient to lug round but otherwise it’s wonderful and makes a nice clack. Perfect for intermediate go players or for those who don’t want to splurge on a table board. Compared to my table board/stones from my grandparents the stones and board hold up nicely (though I still prefer the shell stones’ look, the yunzi have a more playable weight) and I would recommend this set to anyone looking for a high quality board with *indecently* good stones.
very good stuff. The board is of good quality and has excellent finishes. yunzi stones are excellent, highly recommended. the bowls are beautiful. I recommend this set 100%
The package arrived sooner than expected … the packaging was solid … no damage at all … the game is fun to play … the board looks beautiful … the stones have a very nice feel … I've already taught 3 people to play including my 5 year old great granddaughter..!!
