>each player places one stone at a time
>point of the game is to surround territory
>if a stone or group is surrounded on all sides it is dead
>can't commit suicide
What's so hard to understand? The rules are extremely simple. Is it when a group is alive or dead?

not exactly related, but does someone know where to find mahjong-related resources in english (both chinese and japanese variants) ? Actual strategy books, those that push it further than just explaining the rules

Nah man, after 2-6 white just plays 1-4 and black loses the liberty race.

Black 1-6 is the right move. If white goes 1-5 then black cuts him at 3-5 and sacrifices then stone at 1-6 if white ataris it. If white 2-6 (bamboo) after black 1-6 then black just goes 1-5 and joins underneath.

If black goes 1-6 then white 1-5 then black 3-5 but white goes 3-6 to stop black then black just goes 2-6 then white 1-2 which causes a temporary seki. Whites stones inside blacks stones will die eventually so the corner black stones live :)

Any advice on where to get a goban and stones as well as where to find actual humans to play with?
>>
>>1053820
If you want to play in person most major cities in the West will have at least one club or society. If you don't care about face to face interaction there are plenty of very active global Go servers. IGS I think is still the biggest one.

I made an attempt at implementing this in Dreams on PS4, but doing so without list functions was fucking hard. Haven't touched it since release, maybe I should give it another shot

Not him, but one of the major hang ups I had when first learning was the strategy, specifically the reason for the strategy. I need to know WHY people make moves like playing around the star points for the first moves in the game before it clicks on me "this is why I should do this."
>>
anything for chess and shogi?
>>
>>1056557
Well for one the game is not supposed to be a deathmatch where black and white NEED to kill each others groups, it's about surrounding territory. More captured empty space = more points. Capturing a non-retarded opponents stones = very hard/when it does it's on purpose and very minimal. The reason why you play around the corners first (typically) is because you already have two walls built (the edge of the board) and it's easy to determine the direction of play. Then you move on to the sides as extensions from one of your corner groups, then you invade your enemy's territory, make some trades and try to swindle him more than he swindles you, and repeat until the whole board is filled up.
>corners: easy to build territory
>sides: harder to build territory than in the corner, but way easier than the center
>center: hardest place to build territory

It's not like chess where the center of the board is the most important spot to control (although it can be), and in fact placing a stone on tengen as your very first move is actually an incredibly vulgar move. It's like whipping your cock out on the table while saying
>yeah I know I basically did the closest thing to passing without actually passing
>what are you going to do about it faggot?
>build your gay ass moyo, it won't do shit

KGS still has activity, and there are other servers with thousands of people, too. Not exactly dead, but it is definitely "niche" like chess is.

What's a more important thing to prioritize when buying game components; the stones or the goban?

Would the Edward Lasker book be a good introduction to Go?
>>
>>1087456
yes. I love this quote of his.

"While the Baroque rules of chess could only have been created by humans, the rules of go are so elegant, organic, and rigorously logical that if intelligent life forms exist elsewhere in the universe, they almost certainly play go."

-- Edward Lasker

I don't know how to get into this game. I just keep losing, hundreds of times. I have a whole shelf of go books, but still I keep losing. Never got past 19 kyu.

I found instructions on how to make your own wooden go board. Have used this before to make Go boards.
