GOBAN: This Go board is made from high-quality wood veneer to match the golden-tinged Kaya tree, which the very best Gobans are made.
The board measures almost 12 inches making it a convenient size that does not require a large space on which to play. The surface features 19 horizontal and 19 vertical lines that form 361 points of intersection with 324 squares.
STORAGE: Features two storage drawers on both ends for storing the white and black stones. No go bowls are needed. Remove the stones from the drawer during play. When not in use, the drawers recess neatly into the game.
The sleek design makes this Go game a perfect decorative piece that will attract players when left out as a coffee table centerpiece. The high-quality plastic stones are double convex, making them easier to pick up and enjoyable to play with.
GAMES ARE GOOD FOR YOU: Go emphasizes balance and constructive focus and teaches restraint and cooperation, and it engages more areas of the brain and may even produce physical changes. Go players utilize higher-order thinking skills, analyze actions and consequences, and visualize future possibilities. Each time the game is played, these skills are strengthened.
