These double-sided magnetic stones are the absolute best for Baduk demonstration. They are imported from Korea via 6 Brothers Baduk.
These are the same type of stones used by Michael Redmond during the AlphaGo vs Lee Sedol match, which was being broadcast to millions around the world. If you were a baduk teacher watching closely, you would have seen something nearly magical: Mr. Redmond was placing stones upon the demonstration board with complete ease and elegance, reversing each piece as needed for a seamless presentation.
Ask anyone who has tried to use one-sided stones to teach will tell you how awkward it is to fumble with them and lose your teaching flow. Seriously, one-sided stones can ruin the magic of using a demonstration board.
These stones are smooth all around, with no sharp edges. They stick together perfectly so that you can easily hold a whole roll of them in your hand. This means that you have quick easy access and you can focus on the crowd and your presentation. Gone are the days of having to hunt for the color you want - instead, you always have both colors on hand for the next move in the variation.
It may sound like an exaggeration, but these stones are truly amazing!
Each set includes 100 double-sided magnetic stones. More than one set may be necessary to play out a full game.
