The Newbie Go Set is one of the most affordable Go game sets that comes with a full size wooden board.
It includes our Cheap Go Board, which is a Chinese standard 18.5 x 17.3 x 0.2 inches (47 x 43.9 x 0.5 cm) Go board, and the Cheap Go Set, which contains a bonus foldable 19x19 plastic Go board, 160 plastic Go stones of each color (black and white) and two plastic Go bowls.
This is the perfect set for beginners who want to get started playing Go.
Anyone who's played on a plastic or vinyl board knows that it's a completely different experience to playing on a wooden surface. But wooden boards can be expensive when you're just starting out. The Newbie Go Set gives you a real, full size Go set, without breaking the bank.
Best of all, it still gives you all the convenience of the Cheap Go Set for when you need a Go set on the run.
The wooden Go board included in this set is made from laminated MDF and has a standard Chinese chess (xiang qi) board on the reverse side. The single convex Go stones included are 0.24 inches (6 mm) thick, with a diameter of 0.9 inches (22.5 mm). The bowls are 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter and the plastic board is 20.9 x 18.7 inches (53 x 47.5 cm) with a standard sized 19x19 grid.
