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.Read more ›
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 are looking for a durable Go board, this is a good choise
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!
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.

The actual board and stones to play with are high quality. Storage for the stones is plastic bags as described so that is a downside but after three months they are holding up. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Joseph Tolsma
