Virtual - Learn To Play Go, A Guide for Beginners

Want one more board game to play with your family?

Mitchell Schmeisser from Centre County Go Club will guide you how to play the oldest strategy game in the world. You just need a piece of paper and colored pens.

Go (weiqi/baduk) originated in China many thousands of years ago and may have been used for religious purposes. The earliest boards were 17x17 lines in size. Sometime around 600 AD, Buddhist scholars spread the game to Korea, and then to Japan. The West learned about Go from the Japanese in the late 19th century. Today, it is extremely popular in the far east where it is played by millions and receives regular newspaper and TV coverage. “Go” is one of the Japanese names for the game. The more common name in Japan is “Igo”(“surrounding game”) of which “Go” is a shortened version. Because the west learned Go from Japan, Japanese terminology is extensively used.
