Consider yourself a militaristic genius? Ready to set out for blood to gain territory and crush your opponent? Not so fast... Go, an ancient game of Chinese origin, rewards patience and concentration rather than greed and aggression. The shifting balance of territory and power can unnerve even the most disciplined and intellectual player. Like martial arts, Go is an exercise in concentration, balance, and discipline. One cannot disguise one's personality on the Go board! Go can be learned in minutes, but it can take a lifetime to master. The large board and lack of restrictions allows great scope in strategy and expression of players' individuality. The object of the two-player game is to gain control of territories by alternately placing black or white stones strategically across a large ruled board. While it is easy to learn, this game of beauty and intellectual challenge provides hours of entertainment for players. Our transportable, wooden folding game board has an elegant blond veneer with storage for the plastic stones which are included. Set measures 12" x 6" when folded.
