Game of Go

Game of go, originated in China, is the earliest form of chess in the world.

The board of go consists of a grid 19 by 19 resulting in 361 intersections. The pieces are placed on the intersections in such a way as to gradually command more territory by surrounding and eliminating the opposition. Each of the two sides, one with black pieces and the other with white pieces, possesses 180 of them. It is an exciting and intense competition and the situation, and the status on board keeps changing unpredictablly. Players have to resort to all sort of tactics in order to defeat opponent. As the tactics used in the go are so variable and profound, the ancient Chinese said in an exaggerated maner that only deities can invent such game.

Playing go exercises the brain and enhances sense of logic. At the same time, it can also cultivate temperament, build up character of perseverance and calmness. Therefore, go has become more and more popular with young people.

Go was introduced into Japan and Europe in the 19th century during Sui (581 - 618) and Tang (618 - 907) dynasties. Today, it has spread to more than 40 countries and regions. Players from China, Japan and Korea are of the highest skill in the world, and Chinese competitors like Nie Weiping and Ma Xiaochun enjoy international fame. Go has been developed into a very important international contest.
