Fargo Go club is looking for new or veteran players to expand the local Go (igo, baduk, weiqi) group. The club has been active for a number of years and has a strong foundation of players of all levels. Total beginners or experienced veterans, we are always looking to meet new players!
Please note we also have a very active group on OGS (Online Go Server -> https://online-go.com/group/2757 ) if you want to play, but can't make it to meetups very often.
"Go is... an ancient board game which takes simple elements -- line and circle, black and white, stone and wood -- combines them with simple rules and generates subtleties which have enthralled players for millennia. 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."
The rules of Go are simple and almost anyone can understand the basics within a few games. However, players never stop learning or trying to improve. A wonderful handicap system and fellow players who enjoy teaching, can allow even beginners to have competitive and fun matches against seasoned players.
So whether you are just interested in learning about the oriental game of strategy or a long time player looking to test your skills, please join us!
