Rules of Play


Image of GO board and pieces in play.

It is said there have never been two identical games of Go.

Despite this, Go is surprisingly easy to learn. There are only two rules: 1. Every piece that remains on the board must have at least one open point (called a “liberty”) directly next to it, and 2. Players are not allowed to make a move that would return the game to a previous position.

The chart indicating Go requires 2 players, recommended player size for the best game time is 2, plays in 30-180 minutes, features an Abstract strategy theme, and offers enclosure and square grid Mechanics
