5/8” Beechwood Go Game Reversible Board 19×19 / 13×13 Description
Reviews By Spivey Nickolsan : Date April 28, 2009
This board looks great but is not well made or durable. The lines are of golden paint that look great against the almost black board, which appears darker than depicted in the photo, but when used with glass stones the gold paint rubs off onto the black stones leaving them tarnished and wearing away at the playing surface. Furthermore, great care must be taken not to scratch the finish on this board.

Too frequently reviewers leave out important info that would be helpful to prospective buyers in evaluating the overall purchase. Here’s the kind of thing I mean:
1- Five stars for value. All remarks here are based on this one premise; this Go Board was literally the cheapest full size board that I could find online. And I don’t mean by a few bucks, it’s 50% the cost of the next least expensive boards. Plus free shipping with Prime, so the listed price is all I paid. It’s a very nice looking board…but more about that in a moment.
2- It comes in a custom-sized corregated cardboard box that’s fully fitted with foam inside to protect the board. I’ll be keeping that for storage, nothing could be better.
3- The board has a good weight and a dark, rich color with a tight, almost invisible grain. The grid is imprinted on the surface in gold paint, which, unfortunately, is [gasp] one millimeter off of square with the board. While this is almost invisible, it’s enough to annoy me slightly, but not enough to send it back. Did I mention that this was the cheapest board…?
4- Beechwood veneer? Mmm…perhaps…if they can now produce a thin, paperlike veneer that’s only microns thick. But I’m no expert and even under magnification I can’t be sure if it is or isn’t. I can say that the flat, buff or matte finish looks and feels more like paper than wood. Nonetheless, it seems like it will provide years of good game play. And if it eventually gets a little scuffed up, well…who cares.
5- I also ordered [ASIN:B000Y9PD04 Hi-tech Antibacterial Indestructible Single Convex Go Stones - 22 mm (Size 3)]] which are the perfect stones for this board because they are…say it with me…literally the cheapest go stones available, and also not by a few bucks, but also by 50% or more.
