lovely wooden box - pull out storage drawers
on 18 April 2010
We are really pleased with this Go set. It has a full size board (which we sectioned off with a paper frame when learning the game)and is made of really robust good quality varnished wood. It also has two very nice pull out drawers to store the counters in. We decided to get Go as an alternative to Chess - it is similar in that you always need to plan a few steps ahead to be successful - so is great for developing logic skills.
This game is not really suitable for younger children - the counters look just like smarties (if they made white and black ones) and could be easily swallowed. Also the way the counters(which curve up) don't sit totally flat on the board mean that they can really easily be disturbed and knocked out of place. My almost 8 year old has picked up the game really well - but I think much younger children would find it dull.
