|What is Go?|
|'Go'is a game in which two players contest
for territory. One of the two players uses
black stones and the other white stones to
mark out their respective territories.
The object is to surround territory,and the side taking more territory wins the game.
There are various other names for go, such an "Yugen(subtle profoundity)" and "Boyu(forgetting Melancholy)", and also "shudan(conversing with the hands)".
These terms imply that the game has elegance and depth,that it is so interesting that it makes one forget the trials and tribulations of life,that in order to enjoy it words are unnecessary, so it transcends differences of race, country, age and sex.
