Go or Weiqi is an abstract strategy board game for two players in which the aim is to surround more territory than the opponent. Originating 4,000 years ago, Go is one of the most complex games in the world. It is said there have never been two identical games of Go, but despite this, Go is surprisingly easy to learn.
 

This complete set includes a reversible two in one Chinese Hemlock spliced board with engraved lines. Challenge yourself to a long game on the 19x19 side or a quicker beginner one on the 13x13 side.  Catalpa wooden bowls with the option of dark brown or golden silk finished, holding the stones. A full complement of 180 white and 181 black Jizi art glass stones, single-convex or bi-convex in the traditional Chinese style, makes a satisfying click that signifies quality when placed.

Board size: 47cm x 44cm with a 3cm thickness.
Art glass stones sizes:
   single-convex 23mm (diameter); 6mm (height); 2.248 gram
   bi-convex 21mm (diameter); 8mm (height); 2.145 gram
 

The game has playing pieces called ‘stones’ where one player uses the black stones, and the other uses the black ones. The game kicks off with an empty board where participants take turns to place the stones on various vacant areas on the board. The black stones play first by being placed in the intersections of the lines, and once they have been placed on the board, they are not moved unless captured. Capture happens when a stone is surrounded by the opponent’s stones in all the adjacent positions. Players start the game by staking their claims on parts of the board they want to occupy. At the end of the game, the players count the vacant intersections on their territory and add them to the number of stones captured. The player with the larger total becomes the winner.
