Overview

The origins of Go are shrouded in mystery. It was invented in the Far East many thousands of years ago and has long been popular in Japan, China and other parts of the Far East, but now it is a truly global game.

Confucius spoke of the game, and legend has it that Samurai warriors played it in preparation for battle, while Shinto monks learned it as part of their training.

Go is an easy game to learn: two players take it in turns to place their “stones” on the board, one player playing white and the other black. The object of the game is to claim more territory on the board than your opponent, by surrounding it more efficiently or by attacking your opponent’s stones to greater effect. From these simple beginnings evolves a game which can challenge any intellect.

In this pack you will find everything you need to get started, including a fully illustrated step-by-step guide to learning how to play the game of Go; a full-sized playing board and 180 black and 180 white Go stones.
