A few moments to learn, a lifetime to master.
– Ancient Proverb
Go, Baduk, and Weiqi are all names for the ancient and storied Chinese strategy board game of surrounding. The internet is so full of overviews (Shut Up & Sit Down), general information (Wikipedia), repositories of esoteric knowledge (Sensei’s Library), and player communities (Online Go Server), that it can be a bit daunting to learn and play your first games.
Fortunately, it is easy to learn the rules of Go and the Mass Go community loves teaching new players. We encourage anyone interested in learning more to visit the Mass Go event calendar on Meetup where beginner friendly gatherings are called out, or, if you are looking for a more structured introduction to the game and community, to check out our ‘Enter The Gojo’ programs below.
