New Meetup: Indy Underground iGo Salon

Announcing a new Meetup for Indy Anime Underground!

What: Indy Underground iGo Salon

When: January 5,[masked]:00 PM

Sega City Indianapolis! Game Works
9 W Maryland Street suite # 206
Indianapolis, IN 46203

Tentative details for our upcoming iGo Salon board game meetup! (it's also called Go, Baduk, and Weiqi depending on the country/language) Not exactly sure of all of the details yet, but we're hoping to have it around this time at the Sega GameWorks arcade on the top floor of Circle Centre Mall downtown, the same place we have our anime screenings every month. I have a board and stones I'll be bringing, and hopefully we'll be able to procure more sets so that we can individual games going as well. I'll be using the one I have to teach the basic rules of Go and doing tsumego problems (life & death, 'next move', etc) for everyone who's just starting out ^_^.

We're hoping to have a lot more swag from a few new 'connections' we've made to distribution companies and possibly from the American Go Association (AGA). We'll at the very least be showing clips from the "Hikaru no Go" anime up on the screen, if not entire episodes, but we're still working out the details on screening rights and such.

Go really is an amazing game, simple to learn the rules for but incredibly difficult to gain real proficiency at (think chess, but ten times more complex). The difficulty makes it a very rewarding experience though, and even more entertaining, so I hope everyone gives it a shot!

Remember, beginners or people who know nothing at all about the game are entirely welcome!
