Just got my first go set. I iz happy. The board is a dark beechwood, which sucks, but now I can play.

How do I clean melamine stones? Also, what ARE melamine stones? Plastic? Or, what?

Anyways, if you have any tips for caring for a go set like this one, let me know.

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

Put them in a mesh bag and run them through your dishwasher, or wash in a sink with any mild detergent. (Melamine is a plastic used to make cheap dishes from. It's also recently somewhat notorious as a non-food additive used to cheat tests for protein content.)

Melamine is a plastic additive. If it's in plastic, then that's where it's supposed to be. Don't eat the Go pieces and you'll be fine. It's sad that I actually have to say this, but that's life these days.

Melamine and Melamine resin are two different things. I guess the go-stones and perfectly safe kitchenware are both made of Melamine resin. Read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melamine

Bakelite is a much harder and denser substance.
