I bought this directly from a Barnes & Noble nearby because I was curious to see what their set was like. It came with 182 white and 183 black stones, all undamaged. The stones are light and plastic, but I like how they feel. They are single convex, so they have a flat side. I think this is a great combination for small plastic stones so they won't move around as much. The interior of the board is layered in cloth, giving it the soft feel of a billiard table playing surface. However, there are two design flaws that make me question how familiar with the game are those who designed the board. 1. The board has an unsightly gap in the middle line where it folds in half. This leaves a blank piece of board where the middle line is divided. Although unsightly, I wouldn't call it unplayable. It's not so big that you can't place a stone there, but this may be a major turn off to many potential buyers. 2. There are no star points on this board. I've never seen or heard of a go board without any star points. This was quickly remedied with the help of a permanent marker. I don't see any good reason for these flaws to exist. Whoever is in charge should really get on top of fixing these if possible, as I'm sure it would help sales. Overall though, I think it's pretty good for the price. I'm happy with the product and do not regret my purchase.

The center lines of this board should meet at the center of the board.  There is no where else in Murfreesboro, TN that sells these so when I got home and realized that I bought an unplayable board I tried to fix it.  I tried sawing the edges of the center to get the board squares to line up, but that did not work.  You can't see from the box that it is messed up.  It has two pictures of the side of the board, but does not show the lazy manufacturing job on the center of the board.  Seriously, why would Barnes &amp; Noble have a company in china make this game, and leave out the little detail that the board should meet at the line in the center, and not have this big gap that makes the board A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
