Go is probably the oldest board game still played today, originally from ancient China. The object of the game is to secure territory by placing stones on the board. However, a stone or group of stones will be removed from the board if it has are no adjacent empty spaces.
I picked up a Go app at the beginning of the year, and I’ve had been playing it quite a bit since the pandemic started. Making this MOC marks the first physical game of Go I’ve played, and the first time I’ve attempted to score it manually. I expected to run out of white and black studs about mid game, but managed to play it out to a full game, with very few captures made.
