@MystWalker, I took liberty to edit your post and repair the Amazon link (so that it now works; before it didn’t, at least not for me).
And that offer from @koolbreeze … let me tell you that it’s an AWESOME offer. I also have a few of these boards for our local Go club, and the boards are beautiful, I’m quite sure you’ll love playing on it even though it isn’t dark as that other cherry board.
And if you can afford, take the Yunzi stones @koolbreeze linked to; if you’re just a bit like me then you’ll lurve ’em. I prefer playing mine meanwhile even over the precious shell & slate ones, no kidding. The S&S still are beautiful and a pleasure to play, but the weight and haptic feeling of the Yunzi stones makes them really uncomparable.
If money is short, then the melamine stones will also be a satisfying experience.
Another plus of Yunzi over S&S: Their production doesn’t involve killing animals. I only realised later that the clams for the shell stones are not just collected on the shore from dead clams … for me, that thought greatly reduced the joy of playing with them (I’m mostly* vegetarian, with some vegan tendencies, for ethical reasons).
* “mostly” means I’m actually a “food opportunist” aka “flexitarian”: if I find “roadkill” (for example, discounted smoked fish that has reached shelf life, AND if it triggers some craving, I allow myself to give it to my body.)
