Play some more go! All skill levels welcome!

Hey all,

We had a great time playing go at The Creamery in SoMa, so I'm hoping to keep the excitement up! Next meetup will be Saturday August 4, somewhere in Japantown. I had a recommendation for a spatious tea cafe, though I don't know exactly which one (I hope members will suggest the exact location!)

Also, as per request of the group, I'll be trying to have some sort of "sequence of lessons" lined up with these things to help get beginners on their feet in the world of go. This week we'll be focusing on the study of basic "life and death" shapes. These shapes will form the foundation for any go player's tactical capabilities, and are revered by professionals as one of the fastest ways to increase one's skill and appreciation of the game.

Hope to see you there!

    Good times, good group, I will be there next meetup if possible. Beginners are made very welcome. I am pretty flexible on locations, but yakiniQ was pretty nice.

    Thanks to everyone who made it out! I had a great time at YakiniQ (great location, thanks Suejin for the recommendation!) I hope everyone had a good time, and if you have suggestions for a place to play or recommendations about anything (the meetup, the locations, the "lessons", etc) feel free to send me a message, or post something in the discussion!

    Until next time.

    Hey Suejin - sorry to hear it, but I was planning on hosting this one in japantown, and I should stick to that in case anyone else was depending on it. Hope that everyone here can make it, and I look forward to seeing you all this Saturday!
