GO originated in China more than 4,000 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 history.
The object of GO is to gain control of territories and capture enemy stones. God is easy to learn but gives all types of players many challenging hours of fun.
