and I found out this:

https://www.go-spiele.de/en/go-students-set-master.html

but I do not know if it is good or not ... has anyone shopped from that store or this particular set for a Go club or something .?. Is it any good or could you propose to me an another set from another online store within Europe (to keep shipping affordable)

Thank you for your time.

I’ve been using this one for over a decade, also from Hebsacker (this is their new Web site; I’m a happy long-time customer): https://www.go-spiele.de/en/beech-veneered-board-19x19-13x13-13mm-varnished-magnetic-frame-joint.html

I prefer the magnetic joint a LOT over a hinge, and here you have the additional benefit of a 13x13 board on the other side; carried it around a lot also.

wow, that is a very practical board ... indeed the magnetic joint solution seems pretty smart, since I want the board mainly to eventually try to spread the game a bit or play in some coffee shops and trips and I cannot go around carrying my nn-foldable main board (it is not that great a board, but I would feel a bit odd with it in a public place considering that people here look weird at a chess board :p).

instant bookmark :)
