Is there any interest in a full size portable board located in the US?

The board only would sell for $19 plus shipping, availability in January if there's enough interest. PM me if you might be interested in a board or board/bowls/box (9x9x2 inches total size).

The second batch would pull the color less yellow.

Features

Full size board
- 23.2 mm pitch lines fits a wide variety of stones
Very Compact
- Folds into smallest rigid board size available (9 x 9 x 0.25 inches)
High Contrast
- "Bright Kaya" color provides great contrast against stones
Light weight
- Made of chipboard (standard "game board" material)
In use at the Fort Collins Go Club

Looks decent, surprised someone isn't selling these already. I might consider getting one if I get sick of my magnetic set and don't want to get a nicer board yet.

Just curious, but what is the surface made from? It looks like yellow plastic, is that right? Also I'm wondering about how the sections hinge - if it were just the top layer that bends, how likely do you think it is that it would quickly split? I hope you don't mind me asking but I'm genuinely interested in how people make go boards.
Cheers, John

It is a standard chipboard board typical with a folding board for games with a two-section paper-printed top layer.
