Our Shin Kaya Board with Yunxi Stones Set, ordered 5/31/23, was delivered 6/3/23. Packaging was excellent with a fitted-padding box used to contain the product sent within a 2nd box to best ensure it arrived undamaged. On-line order processing was very easy and periodic order-related delivery communications were maintained while we waited for its arrival. We studied 'How to play Go' on your site during the wait, and finished our 1st game the day it arrived. Much fun; nice stone 'clicks' on the board during our play. I want to learn more. This set is (and the experience was) excellent. Mahalo!
The products are delivered in good condition. And the go set looks beautiful! Exactly what I am looking for.
I love the wooden texture of the board and the sound it makes when I place a yunzi stone on it.
I love my new Goban with Yunzi stones
I've gotten a Goban from YMI before and I decided to upgrade to this one and haven't regretted it, thank you!
My goban arrived with one imperfection but I was relieved that YMI handled the issue very well. The Yunzi are all in excellent shape and I'm very happy with the price I paid for a more quality experience!
