You could get a combined xiangqi/weiqi(go) board. All the regular ones are made of wood. You can get a go board in some Chinese stores in the states for a good price too, considering how hard it is to bring back home.

Oh, in addition, you can really get a good set of Mahjong. But... WHY are you thinking about getting games from Taiwan? There are very limited amount of games that spring up in this place. I live here and most of my games are made in countries half-way around the world. Well, there is one native card game worth mentioning, Tracer, which is in Traditional Chinese and definitely language dependent. Nope, this is not a place to get games. yuk On the other hand, if you get your friend to bring some games over (like Heroscpae & expansions) I guarantee that he will make a profit selling them. But I suppose if you want to get some things you might as well get some Albums and stuffs which are probably a bit cheaper; even Japanese comics, if you can read Chinese. Actually COME HERE FOR ANYTHING ELSE BUT GAMES!! It's sad.

Yup it is called Tracer, and you can only get the 2nd edition now. The Chinese name is ’Ç?ÕŽÒ. It is a nice little card game. I have just submitted an entry into the database. But I don't know if it will be accepted. Your friend can probably get a copy by calling this number: (02) 23692527. If all else fails, I can probaly hunt down a copy and send it to you. It is very small and light.
