Product Description

Amazon.com

Go is probably one of the world's most intimidating games, one which conjures up images of players gleefully setting out for blood as they devise militaristic board moves. This complex exercise in strategy originated some 4,000 years ago in the East and has no direct Western counterpart. The game's playing surface is divided into 361 intersections. Players place stones on the corners of the squares, and the object is to surround the stones of their opponents. This edition's wooden game board is heavy, durable, and has an elegant blond veneer. The plastic stones are less impressive. The set comes with a first-rate rule book: filled with diagrams, examples, and a useful recap section midway through the instructions, it'll make any novice good to Go. --Tony Mason

Product Description

Go originated in China more than 4000 years ago. But it was the Japanese who perfected it and made Go a great strategic skill game. For thousands of years everyone from the working classes to royalty played Go, making it the national pastime. The popularity of Go has now reached the West bringing with it an air of Oriental wisdom and mystery! The Object of Go is to gain control of territories and capture enemy stones.

The only complaint I have is that the pieces are just a little too small and light.
Jacob Martinez
OR, if you don't want to take it seriously at all, and don't really care about deep strategies... well, this is STILL the game for you.
Ayatsuri Ningyo
The wood board feels solid and looks nice, and the pieces feel good and solid in your hand.

This is one of the few Go sets that reaches into 'reasonably priced' territory. One could easily spend a small fortune on a set. This one is very fairly priced, comes with a pretty solid wooden board and nice fascimile playing pieces. Anyone looking to get into Go would benefit from buying this inexpensive set.

The one downside is the lack of adequate containment for the stones. They come in two small plastic bags. You're going to want some small bowls or sealable containers to hold them.

If you like strategy games, even in a vague, general sense, then Go is a great game. The rules are simple enough for kids to understand, but the strategy CAN be complex enough for people to spend their whole lives working on it. I say CAN be that complex, because it really depends how seriously the players want to take it.

If you're looking for a lifelong hobby, this is the game for you. OR, if you don't want to take it seriously at all, and don't really care about deep strategies... well, this is STILL the game for you. Whether or not you'll have fun playing go, really only depends on whether or not both players have more or less the same mindset (otherwise the person taking it seriously will simply slaughter the person not taking it seriously, every time, which probably won't be much fun for that other person.)

Go is a great game for most ages, and pretty much people of all levels of "taking it seriously". Go is very flexible that way. In fact, since you can actually study this game, you can even work out go problems all by yourself, making it a possible solitary activity for people who like brainy things. (You can get books of go problems to work out on the board, or re-play the games of professionals to improve your own understanding, both of which are solitary activities.) Some strange ducks even like playing against themselves. ^_-

THAT BEING SAID...

For some people, about half or three quarters of the enjoyment of playing a game (especially an ancient game like this) comes from the quality and looks of the equipment, and the ease of use, such as comfort of the size of the equipment when playing. If you don't care about stuff like that, then this board might do for you.

I bought mine some years ago, just the box art tells you what you will find, the board is ample, the beads are plastics but very solid, the wood is supreme... I noticed it was out-of-stock for some years, good to see it back

If you are looking for a durable Go board, this is a good choise

We like this game. The instructions are clear and play can begin quickly after reading them with out a lot of refering back. The wooden board is sturdy, but the plastic pieces feel a little cheesey. It would be nice if the game came with a couple small pouches to keep the playing pieces separate.

I had been wanting to play this game for quite some time, however living in a less culturally diverse area had made it very difficult. We found this board at the mall, for about the same price, more or less, and picked it up, It's been over 3 years now, I've used it at school and home, and it's still in good shape, It's even been used in Cultural game nights, and mini competitions at school I have tossed out the old plastic baggies that the stones were in and replaced them with tuperwears. I still keep the board in the plastic bag it came in when i bought it , when it's not in use, And so far it's still in great shape!
I must admit, the stones and board are a bit small. It's hard for big hands like mine to navigate the board without knocking around the pieces a bit. all in all however this can be more or less worked around with a little practice.

So, lets get down to business, Do you want this board? or another one? If you're not sure if you will like go in the first place, get this version, It's the best price for what you get. The rest of the cheap boards seem to be either cardboard or tiny travel boards( yes even smaller than this one!) and anything else that's worth buying seems a bit expensive for the first time buyer.

As for me, I have this board, and I'm ready for an upgrade, But I'm still going to keep it around as a travel/ school board, And i'll use the new one at home where it's safe! (especially after investing as much as it will cost me to buy it!) It, has given me at least 3 years of service, and it still looks like its got more than a few years left in it!

This a nice board set to start with and if you where to start a Go club it is probably one of the cheaper sets outside the travel sets for learning to play.

My one major problem with this set is in general it is still kinda small for my tastes. Especially the stones. I find them hard to place on a crowded board even when using proper placing technique. I have fairly large hands which doesn't help the matter.

Also the beads are plastic, but when it comes to Go boards, you sort of expect it at this price range.

Other than that it is a nice set to start with if you are looking a cheaper more practical playing equipment.
