This Go set is stunning-the Shin Kaya wood board is beautiful and makes a wonderful, satisfying sound when we place the yunzi stones. The jujube bowls are gorgeous and the carrying case and protective cover for the board are first rate. My daughter was absolutely thrilled! The set came very quickly and was well packaged to ensure no damage during transit. Fine workmanship all round.
Very satisfied - the set arrived quickly, carefully packed and in perfect condition. I appreciated the guidelines for "curing" the yunzi stones - very helpful. Jujube bowls are beautiful, too. The quality and beauty of the set really enhances the game experience!
