    Go is an ancient game of Chinese origin from over 4000 years ago that was formalized in Japan during the 15th century. The objective of the game is to dominate and control territory while capturing your opponent's pieces. The game rewards patience and concentration rather than greed and aggression. The shifting balance of territory and power can unnerve even the most disciplined and intellectual player.

    Go is the most complicated board game mathematically – significantly more difficult than chess. Because of the complexity, it is believed that there have never been two identical games of Go.

    It is said that the game of Go only takes moments to learn and a lifetime to master. The object of Go is to dominate territory and to capture as many of your opposing player’s stones as possible. The end of the game is known when none of the players can set any of their stones on the board. At that time, the players add up their opponent’s stones they have captured along with the amount of territory conquered. The player with the highest score is the winner.

    This is a standard GO board showing 361 points of intersection with 324 squares is made by 19 horizontal and 19 vertical lines. There are “Star Points” shown on certain intersections for the sole purpose of direction; therefore have no special meaning to the game.
