Go board games

(We deleted Amazon affiliate links from here, thanks for understanding.) Go is over 4000 years old, and is widely recognised as the oldest board game in existence. It is a game of surrounding and territorial advantage; the board represents the uninhabited world bound on all sides by the seashore. The rules are simple, yet play is complex, subtle and intuitive. Beyond being merely a game, go can take on other meanings to enthusiasts: an analogy with life, an intense meditation, a mirror of one's personality, an exercise in abstract reasoning, or, when played well, a beautiful art in which Black and White dance across the board in delicate balance. But most important for all who play, go is challenging and fun.
