Considered by some to be the Ultimate Strategy Game. Originated in ancient China between 2000BC & 200BC. The game is for 2 players, black & white, battle to maximize the territory they control, seeking to surround large areas of the board with their stones, to entrap any opposing stones that invade these areas, and to protect their own stones from capture! The strategy involved can become very subtle & complex.?Our Go Game is all wood, including the men in a separate tray.
