The box is heavily damaged. Oversized box with no filler to cushion or soften things.
This is a fine beginner's board set. It comes with a go instruction booklet as well. If you are a go learner or looking to get back into it (like me), this is what to get.
The quality of the wooden board is better than i expected. Many other boards at this price have only a veneer. The board is solid wood and thick enough to be durable.
It's surprisingly light, and can fit in a school bag or briefcase. The board fits perfectly in the barnes and noble canvas zipper bags. Extremely well packaged and arrived intact.
This kit is especially good for beginners. Everything about the boards is the right size, unlike the smaller boards in the lower-price tier. That's a great old proverb.
The board itself has a smooth and nice feeling to it. The finish is good.
An okay set for beginners who want to practice on the 9x9 and 13x13 sizes. Some of the stones were broken and have to put some glue.
