The Featherweight Go Set is one of the lightest and most portable Go game sets you can buy. Anyone who's ever ordered something from overseas knows that international shipping fees can add up quickly. And local shipping isn't always that cheap either. We worked closely with our suppliers to solve this problem, coming up with the lightest full size Go set that we could, to help you save money.
Weighing in at just 20.5 oz (580 g), the Featherweight Go Set is even lighter than your average travel Go set. But here's the thing; it's a proper, full sized Go board with stones. It includes size 21 plastic stones (0.3 inches or 8 mm thick) with a 0.8 inch (20 mm) diameter and a durable, full size, crease resistant 19x19 plastic Go board. The board can easily be folded or rolled, making this set highly portable. Keep a set in your bag or briefcase so that you're always ready for a serendipitous game of Go!
Each set contains 160 stones of each color (black and white). It's very rare for a game of Go be longer than 300 moves, so usually fewer than 150 stones of each color are needed to play.
Because of the quality of the stones and the board, this isn't the cheapest plastic Go set you can buy, but it may well be the lightest. Once you factor in the cost of shipping, we're confident that you'll find that this Go set offers great value.
