Go. The game of black and white stones laid on a grid. Take turns placing stones on intersections; try to cut off your opponent’s stones from clear intersections; whoever controls the most clear intersections in the end wins. That’s it, but the game’s thousands of years old, wonderfully complicated, and beautiful (in the interplay of black and white) to watch and play.
Berkeley Go Club is a group of people dedicated to playing, teaching, and promoting the ancient game of Go, known as weiqi 圍棋 in Chinese, igo 囲碁 in Japanese, baduk 바둑 in Korean. They meet every Thursday in the basement game rooms of Games of Berkeley for competitive play. The event is open to all who wish to play!
