Game of Go Set with Wooden Board and Stones: To most western players, the game of Go is an enigma. Invented in
China 4,000 years ago, it has no proper analogue in the West. It's like
chess, but endlessly more complex. Focused more upon territory control
and less about capturing the opponent's pieces, there are between
150-250 valid moves a player could make on any turn. For chess, this
number never climbs above 37. It is said there have never been two
identical games of Go, and there does not yet exist a computer program
that can reliably beat Go experts - let alone the masters.
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
