    have any of you people...played go?


    another one of those "have any of you..."-posts.

    yeah, go. like in the japanese board game go. it's the same game that max and the soviet prof. is playing in aronofsky's PI movie. also some of the main characters of "a beautiful mind" is playing it at princeton, in the early days of...this guy the movie is about. anyway, i started playing it a few days a go (GNUGO), and it's really something. damn hard, cos you need to keep track of the entire board all of the time. besides, it's really abstract and challenging. you guys should try it, if you're not already into it.

    Never played "Go". It was a sort of neat movie though.

    Never played it. I did look at it though.
    I couldn't grasp the strategy to play a game after reading about it.

    I've never played it but I've read the rules on a couple of occasions.
    If I wasn't so hooked on chess already then I'd be sure
    to give Go a go.

    I was always a pretty avid chess player, but once getting into go, I am hooked, I use gnugo to play on an international server and its wonderful, the game is truly infinite and at the same time simply infinitesimal

    I didn't know about go until the slashdot story about a cimputer "solving" 5x5 go, but I've been playing it since. I play on itsyourturn.com, which is a nice site for playing go, chess, etc which allows you to make a move then log off, so i dont have to dedicate a long time to a game, and can have several going at once. Be advised, though.. dont go near that site without adblock and a popupblocker, and it is encrusted with very annoying ads

    WTF!? Go a japanese board game?

    The only boardgame that I know that is named 'GO' is the 60's game by Waddingtons where you must travel the world, collect a set amoount of souvenirs in a few of the worlds cities, before dashing back to London before anyone else did. A pic of the board and set:
