CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Go originated in China more than 4000 years ago. But it was the Japanese who perfected it and made Go a great strategic skill game. For thousands of years everyone from the working classes to royalty played Go, making it the national pastime. The popularity of Go has now reached the West bringing with it an air of Oriental wisdom and mystery! The Object of Go is to gain control of territories and capture enemy stones.
Go is probably one of the world's most intimidating games, one which conjures up images of players gleefully setting out for blood as they devise militaristic board moves. This complex exercise in strategy originated some 4,000 years ago in the East and has no direct Western counterpart. The game's playing surface is divided into 361 intersections. Players place stones on the corners of the squares, and the object is to surround the stones of their opponents. This edition's wooden game board is heavy, durable, and has an elegant blond veneer. The plastic stones are less impressive. The set comes with a first-rate rule book: filled with diagrams, examples, and a useful recap section midway through the instructions, it'll make any novice good to Go. --Tony MasonSee all Product Description

I love the game of Go. I anticipated the pieces to be larger than they are. But, I think that is my expectation and not a reflection of any misrepresentation. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Butterfly Pages
I purchased this as a gift for a friend who enjoys it immensely. One drawback of this item is that it does not have a place to store the stones. Read morePublished 6 months ago by apap0
