What is GO?
GO is the world's best strategy game. It originated in China 3,000 years ago and is played worldwide under various names:
- "WeiQi" (Chinese)
- "Igo" (Japanese)
- "Baduk" (Korean)
GO uses black and white stones on a 19 x 19 lined wooden board and combines them with simple rules. Yet these basic materials and simple rules have enthralled players for millennia.
Beyond being merely a game, GO can take on other meanings to enthusiasts: an analogy with life, an intense meditation, a mirror of one's personality, an exercise in abstract reasoning, or, when played well, a beautiful art in which Black and White dance across the board in delicate balance. But most important, for all who play, go is challenging and fun.
