The Van Go Room on Kiseido Go Server

Welcome to the Vancouver Go Players page. Since there are character limitations for both users and rooms on KGS, I felt it would be better to put all the room information on Sensei's and have a link from the room. Hopefully we can get more people involved with our room.

This page is meant to be a convenient place where club members can look up information regarding their local area's Go clubs and related materials. Anyone can join.

For additional information, please visit Vancouver.

If you have any new information or updates regarding the material on this page, please feel free to add/change it. LeeHungLo

Equipment locations

Chinatown in Vancouver has a lot of shops with Gobans available. Prices range from $7.99 to $25.00.

290 Keefer Street -

They say they don't carry go stuff as of 16 April 2007

268 Keefer Street ("Chinese Flea Market"), upstairs, "Art Supplies"

Best in Chinatown! Real Yunzi stones for $25, decent cheap boards for $6 (Chinese Chess on reverse as usual). Just the Chinese-style as far as I saw, but they might order biconvex. Comes complete with straw baskets that online shops charge additional for.

Note: Just went there recently, they were out of Yunzi stones. The owner said that the next shipment of Yunzi will be in 2010

149 East Pender - A+A Oriental Dept Store
122 East Pender - N & S Trading Co.

They carry portable sets. A little one for $14, and a bigger one for about $40. Very basic, no magnets.

130 East Pender - The Potters Wheel Gift Shop

Has a really nice red board (about .75 inch thick) for 25 dollars. Comes with glass "art bead" (cheap) stones. Also carry what look like Yunzi, but probably not--label says "QMT" on it. Anyone know what these are?

Iwase Books, Yaohan Centre (second floor)

Usually one or two Japanese folding boards and basic stones (look in the glass cabinet where they keep the denki jiten and Doraemon toys). Also carries selection of Japanese language go and shogi books, including a range from Kobayashi Koichi.

106-4501 North Rd. Burnaby - Hannam Supermarket Inc.

Has cheap Glass Korean stones (small) for about 10 dollars and smaller folding board that fits only with the smaller stones. Good to carry, but no magnets.
