Play with natural stones on a beautiful wooden table, for the authentic goban experience. The board is carved with a 9 x 9 grid of squares, hand-painted in gold. 9 lines by 9 is the size recommended for beginners, or for quick games. It measures 380 x 380 x 45 mm overall and has been hand-made by a master yachtbuilder (Penny's father), from sapele wood, a sustainable alternative to mahogany.It is glued and screwed to remain absolutely rigid, sitting on four 60 mm-high, turned feet with leather pads, so you can use it on a table top without scratching it, or you can sit and play on the floor. Including the feet, the height is 105 mm. The stones are responsibly-sourced pebbles, varying from 36 - 39mm in diameter, each hand-painted and varnished to highlight its individual beauty. The 41 dark stones are stored and the 40 light stones are stored in beautiful, hand-made drawstring pouches, which also serve as go bowls. The dark stones are in a deep, sea-blue velvet bag with a matching drawstring, and the light stones are in a silver velvet bag with a white drawstring. The drawstrings are hand-whipped with silk and sealed with wax at the ends to prevent fraying.
