T3h shinay.
would like a 9x9 board as well for teaching people/quick games, cheap and easy to pickup, ~$10
Cheaper plain thin board: http://www.go-gamestore.com/goequip/boards.htm


Stones, 8 or 10mm? 9.2mm are ideal, but not carried by samarkand (cheaper store). hmm.
edit: I liked the thicker ones when I was playing, hated the thin ones. 10mm it will be:

9.2mm: $65 http://www.kiseido.com/go_equipment.htm
more 10mm here: https://www.yutopian.com/yutop/cat?product=SK215&category=Sg
~8-9mm from here: http://www.go-gamestore.com/goequip/stones.htm (doubleside convex of course. flat sided? neh. These are the nice ceramic ones from the cambridge Go club I think. and marble ones! edit: not ceramic, they're 'yunzi', unique material.)



Bowls: http://www.samarkand.net/Web_store/web_store.cgi?product=bowls&cart_id=804897_39390
Cheapass bowls make most sense, but damn those red-brown ash bowls are nice...
If only I were good with a lathe. and had one. >_<
$50shipped wooden bowls: http://www.go-gamestore.com/goequip/bowls.htm


sets:
Bi-convex yunzi/straw or marble/wood, $99/$160: http://www.go-gamestore.com/goequip/sets.htm

They close at 5PM except on Thursday so make sure you get there early enough. I tend to look at them with lust on Saturday afternoons. They also have Backgammon, Mah Jong, Chess, etc.
