Introduction to Go

Go is a board game that combines a very simple rule set, an ancient history, and yet a level of sophistication unrivaled by any mind sports. Played on a 19×19 grid, players alternate in placing stones (black and white) on the intersection points of the grid. The object of the game is to surround the most empty grid intersections (points) by surround them or by capturing the opponent’s stones that occupy these grid points.

Go is the most popular game in Asia where it originated. In China and Korea, Go exceeds golf and ALL other sports in capturing TV audiences. Go players command prize moneys enjoyed in the West only by the top golf, football, and basketball players.

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of Go is that to this day Go remains the ONLY mind sport as yet unsolved by artificial intelligence. Computer playing programs, for example, remain unmatched by even the modestly strong amateur players. As such, it can be said that Go is the last stronghold of “human intelligence” against its “artificial” counterpart.
