Skud Pai Sho is based on the Wiki Pai Sho tile set and uses a standard Pai Sho board. Here are some of the best resources I’ve found for buying a Pai Sho set for yourself. Because sooner or later, you know that playing online just won’t be good enough!

Most Affordable

Aside from the free print-and-play set, the most affordable Skud Pai Sho set is available at The Game Crafter for $30 plus shipping. Many thanks to Pai Sho tile artist Hector Lowe for making this available! See the review for more pictures of it.

The most affordable wooden Pai Sho board and tiles are available from me at The Garden Gate shop.

Wooden Pai Sho Sets

Standard sizes for Pai Sho sets are Small (18-inch board, tiles about 1-inch) and Large (roughly 24-inch board, tiles about 1.25-inch). Choose a board and tiles that are the same size for an awesome and unique Pai Sho set!

The Garden Gate Board – Recommended Small Board

I sell modular small-size Pai Sho boards available at The Garden Gate shop. Unlike the other boards that are available, these are made from different wood materials so that the colors of the board are differently colored all-natural woods. Take a look!

IrohPaiSho Board – Recommended Small Board

The IrohPaiSho shop on Etsy sells a classic-looking standard small-size 18″ Pai Sho board that looks nice and sturdy. If that classic look and solid feel is what you’re looking for, check it out!

JasmineQuasar Board – Highly Recommended Large Board

JasmineQuasar on Etsy sells a large Pai Sho board that looks incredible. If you asked me what Pai Sho board you should get, I would tell you to get this one! Unfortunately, it is not always available.

Lyris Laser Studio Board (Large)

The Lyris Laser Studio Pai Sho board is nice, but I would recommend looking into other options, especially the JasmineQuasar board. The Lyris Laser board is just shy of 24″ and is 1/4″ thick. The colors are painted onto the board, so the color has a very solid, classic look to it.

The Garden Gate Tiles – Highly Recommended Small and Large Tiles

I offer sets of Small and Large tiles for Skud Pai Sho at The Garden Gate shop. Unlike the other tiles that are available, these tiles feature the modern tile designs and the colors of the Basic Flower tiles are distinguishable, preserving the visual harmony built into the tile designs – the Red Flowers have dark/engraved petals and the White Flowers have light/non-engraved petals in both the standard and inverted designs.

The White Lotus Initiate tiles are the most affordable wooden tiles available. I created these so that there was a great set of wooden Pai Sho with an affordable price tag. They are nice, but I recommend spending more to get the higher quality White Lotus Master tiles that are much nicer.

The White Lotus Master tiles are affordable laser-cut Pai Sho tiles with the tile designs engraved in high-quality. You can choose from a variety of solid hardwoods to create your own custom set of tiles. I aim to make these the most amazing Pai Sho tiles available anywhere.

The Grand Lotus tiles are Uncle Iroh’s personal Pai Sho tiles. Well… they’re as close as anyone will get. These are high-quality Pai Sho tiles like the White Lotus Master tiles, but they are made from exotic hardwoods. If you want to support my work on The Garden Gate and have the coolest Pai Sho tiles around, this is for you.

EmoryDunn Tiles – Recommended Small Tiles

The Pai Sho tiles available from EmoryDunn on Etsy are high-quality small tiles. These tiles are available in a variety of different kinds of wood, which means that each player’s set of tiles can be a totally different color in addition to the option of having the design engraving inverted. If you are looking for a full Wiki Pai Sho set or the older tile designs as opposed to the modern tile designs available at The Garden Gate shop, I recommend these tiles.

Lyris Laser Studio Tiles

Lyris Laser Studio sells sets of large Pai Sho tiles. They offer a Skud Pai Sho set or a full Wiki Pai Sho set. Either way, it is a full two-player sets of tiles, with one set having the tile design engraved inverted to distinguish between the tiles. I would recommend against them, as the quality is similar to the White Lotus Initiate tiles from The Garden Gate, which are more affordable. I would recommend getting large White Lotus Master tiles, as they are a similar price as a Skud Pai Sho set from Lyris Laser and will be much higher quality.
