Product Description

Chinese Go Set or WeQi Board Game with Bamboo Bowls, Yunzi Go Stones and Folding Portable Game Board

The game of Go, called Weiqi in Chinese, is one the oldest board game in the world. It was thought to be one of the four arts, along with music, painting, and poetry, and became part of the training of the ancient warriors of Japan and China. Today the game is played worldwide. It is a game rich in strategy.

Go is a two-player game which has simple rules that can be learned very quickly but, as with chess and similar board games, complex strategies may be deployed by experienced players.

The Go stones of this set are Yunzi playing stones, which are the official standard of the Chinese Wei Qi Academy, and are used in major, national and international tournaments. Yunzi stones are made from a special combination of natural materials, one of which is a type of agate or gemstone. However the exact materials and the procedure used in making the stones have long been kept secret

The yunzi stones measure approx. 22mm in diameter, with a thickness of 4mm. These stones are the more traditional, single-convex type i.e. flat on one side

The game does not come with any instructions but these are easily available in English by searching online
